be…open to change.

once upon a time there was a girl who had it all…or at least she thought she did.

a beautiful house furnished with pottery barn, a cool car, a handsome husband, two darling daughters, and an exciting career traveling the world.

with it came, a house keeper, a stack of bills, a room mate, a nanny, and lots of frequent flyer miles.

what the girl didn’t know was life was about to change….and when it did,  it changed A LOT!

at first it was hard…really hard, in fact it broke her for a bit.  and some days are still hard, but most days are lived creatively.

now the girl wipes away gluten free toast crumbs from the counter while she home schools her very creative, energetic, and talented children in the beautiful but very lived in house.  she drives a 1987 volkswagon vanagon across town, to and from, and all around.  she fights hard and hopes for a make up with her still very handsome husband, as they attempt to figure things out.  she adores…like literally adores, her now four darling daughters.  she humbly tinkers in her quiet and dusty little studio from time to time.

and with this comes, a home, a paid in full mode of transportation, a partner, a flock, and freedom.

with this comes…the little moments, the invaluable ones.  the moments that simply can not be replaced by any thing material. the challenges, tears, pain and struggle. the victories, laughter, joy and accomplishment. with this comes the satisfaction that she has created and belongs to the greatest organization established…the family.

with this comes…peace.
