About Me

BASICS:  I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister, coworker, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, cancer survivor, and friend.  I’ve done a bunch of stuff, avoided a bunch of stuff, been excited about a bunch of stuff,  been fearful of a bunch of stuff, replaced that fear stuff, and triumphed in a bunch of stuff  in my life.

WHAT I LOVE:  I love to sing, I love to dance, I love helping others become heroes in their own lives, and I love to create behind the camera.  I love my husband and sons, and our little puppy.  I love fresh air, and being outdoors -especially in the spring and fall.  I love The Kansas City Royals and reading really good fiction.

WHERE I DO IT ALL:   I am proudly rooted in like a turnip in flyover country! Give me Kansas and the heart of her people over anywhere else!   I bleed Royal blue and Chief’s Red,  (with a bit of yellow and white thrown in for the KU Jayhawks).

I’m creating the rest of my life, learning more each day, and this blog is to chronicle the journey of that discovery, and to document the chipping away of the cement along the way.

“If thou indeed derive thy light from Heaven,
Then, to the measure of that heaven-born light,
Shine, POET!  in thy place, and be content!”
