Welcome to my website, friends. Come in and sit down. Have a cup of coffee or a margarita.
This is where you’ll find the musings of a 40-year-old mother of two boys living in Fair Oaks, California. This is where I explore the issues of being a woman, a mother, a wife, and a professional editor and writer. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.
We are educating our children in the Waldorf philosophy, but we also have our feet firmly in the world. We are aiming for a peaceful, balanced family life, where all members’ needs are considered and met. We are gloriously imperfect, walking our path together and pouring our love into every step.
I am a HUGE FAN of:
- health care reform
- marriage equality
- green living
- homeschooling, although it is not our choice
- Waldorf education
- elimination communication, or ec
- playing in the earth and water
- making things by hand
- CSA and organic foods
- life-long learning
- making mistakes
- artistic exploration and skill building
- painting and photography
