I am deeply devoted to my family.

I believe in owning lots of cowboy boots and wearing them with just about everything.

I have a loud laugh and do this often with my husband, the funniest person I know.

I like the insane amount of driving I do with my kids because we can talk about important stuff.

I write photo & art ideas on a million tiny pieces of paper around the house.

I find great joy in teaching and have re-sparked my career with a 3rd grade class in my town.

I love my windmill in my kitchen.

I think owning a dog can make you a better person.

I like to receive love letters.

I dream of biking in a small beach town with a basket of baguette and bouquets of wildflowers.

I will chat people up anywhere, anytime…even in a quiet elevator…much to the dismay of my kids.

I am happiest when surrounded by artsy stuff in my studio.

I like music that makes me feel things.

I have a tribe of women that ignite my heart and place a fire under my vision.

I lived outside of Manhattan for three years and still yearn for it sometimes, even though I’m a country girl now.

I like asking the question, “What is your dream job? If you could do anything, what would it be?”

I am a Brave Girl…and went to BG camp to prove it.

I am happy.

I am grateful.


….and…this is what my heart looks like on the inside~
