“Had I not arrived in a different place than planned, I would never have realized the power, wisdom and compassion that lies within me.”

I am an advocate of Living an Adventurous, Inspired & Mindful Life and Author of ‘D iz for Different – One Woman’s Journey to Acceptance’. I am passionate about mindful, natural and simple living. My wish is to educate and guide people about living a mindful, inspired, and simple  life through extensive research, writing and application to my own life.

This website and blog bring all the pieces of my life together, like a snapshot. I am a writer, author, blogger and photographer. I am Mom to 8 year old Thomas and 12 year old Lillian.

Lillian has a chromosome abnormality simply called 18p-. This means she is missing a piece of the short arm of chromosome #18. Her younger brother, Thomas, is an amazing and loving helper!

I love taking pictures with my mobile devices. Currently an iPhone 3G and a Samsung tablet. I purposely shoot all photos with these devices as I don’t choose to invest in a fancy camera and/or deal with and learn all the details involved and to show others we can easily and economically capture the beauty and awe of nature anywhere and anytime.

I love writing about mindful, inspired, simple living as it relates to the choices I make, daily living, being a parent, experiencing nature and …. food.

I am inspired by this place I have chosen as our home … Reno, Nevada. When he was 7 years old, my son, Thomas, summed it up with one beautifully crafted comment. “It’s like we are at an art show and nature keeps changing the art for us.”

I freely and openly share my journey as I sail through life. The ups, the downs, the loop the loops. I have good days, I have bad days. I share in the hopes that you will find at least one nugget to take away and apply to your own life. My wish is that you become inspired, your own passion to simplify life is ignited, or a path to mindful living is illuminated.

I am available for freelance writing opportunities and guest blogging. Contact me here to inquire further.

**Disclosure: I am not an expert on how anyone should be living their life; except for my own …. and that’s only sometimes! I attempt to be non-judgmental and to allow others to BE! Go forth and BE MINDFULLY YOU!
