Welcome! In “real life” I’m the lucky girl who has had the privilege of spending 33 years married to the love of my life, mother to three amazing girls (26, 24, and 18), chief provider of food and lap time to a seven pound Yorkie named Chip, and daughter of the King, who just happens to have a part-time jewelry business. I also love coffee, which is an overwhelmingly important aspect of every women’s life, right?
On most days though, I am a fellow well-worn wife, mother, entrepreneur and seeker of much grace who loves to write, cook, and serve and is earnestly seeking “balance” and purpose in the midst of this thing we call life–or, in my case, mid-life. I may also be slightly addicted to caffeine, but that’s just an added bonus!
Does any of the above sound like you? Are you tired and worn out from giving 150% of your body and soul every day but feeling like you’re giving nothing important even close to 100%? If you know what I mean, we can be friends. Now that we’ve established that relationship connection, take a deep breath and rest in knowing you are not alone. Not by a long shot! You are what our culture calls “normal”. Now that that’s settled, grab a cup of well-deserved coffee and relax. Take another deep breath and know you are in good company. I’m glad you came!
It is my hope that this will be an inviting and safe place to land for women of all ages who are looking to find some pause, encouragement, and even maybe a little humor in the midst of the challenges each day brings on this crazy journey. Are you ready? If so, let’s join arms (and raise our coffee cups!) as we rally around the life of purpose we were meant to not only live, but embrace!
