…and now…back to teaching 3rd grade and happy as a clam to be inspiring kids and having them inspire me.
If I was going to get real here, I would tell you that the pace of life for families in this country is (for me) an ill-fitting shoe. I’ve been trying to squeeze my loving husband, two beautiful teen daughters, naughty dogs and me into this shoe, knowing full well that I was shopping at the wrong store all along.
I crave simplicity.
I horde joy and all the experiences that can invite it in.
I look for inspiration at every turn and always want more time to find it.
I yearn for a tranquil heart in all situations (even hard ones).
I focus on health and love having time to be creative with food and exercise.
I’ve always wanted to live an ExtraOrdinary life so that at the end of the road I will know that my family and I took every chance for adventure and fun…and that we loved without limits, always remembering what mattered.

I truly believe the key to happiness in all of these areas is SIMPLICITY.
Every day counts and every day we have a new chance to begin a simple road again. Join me in paring down and powering up!
