I’m a multi-passionate creative, lover, mama, poet & kindness advocate living in western Pennsylvania.
My hands love to be covered in paint, carrying & clicking the shutter button on my camera, resting on a mouse creating digital books & art, tip-tapping the keys writing poems & stories, loving on my mister & hugging my two awesome little dudes.
I’m so honored to be here at Roots of She this season, I adore Jenn & the space she has created here, she’s a friend, a soul sister & as most of you know, together we created & ran Kind Over Matter side-by-side for a while.
True to my creative nature, you’ll find me sharing a medley of wholehearted goodness this season, even some hard stuff.
So, hi there! Nice to meet you! Happy Autumn! Looking forward to this season & what unfolds, would you like a glass of red or a mug of tea, perhaps?
(Pssst… I’m giving one of these bracelets away this week,
a gorgeous reminder that you are, come enter!)
Zenin, my 3 year old, does this divine thing… he walks toward me with his arms outstretched for me to pick him up, when I do, he gives me this magical hug, pulls away, puts his little hands on my cheeks, looks into my eyes & then smiles this smile that could light up the darkest corner of the universe.
He opens my most precious & sacred gift—
my ability to love & be loved.
In that moment, his toddler-sized legs wrapped tight around my mama hips, he does not see what I am not or the dried snot hanging out on the left shoulder of my shirt, the dirty dishes in the sink, the extra pounds sitting on my frame like a thick-yarned cardigan, the crumbs grounded into the living room carpet from this morning’s snack, the emails that didn’t get answered yet, the blog posts that aren’t done—
he only sees love
& without words, he mirrors that back to me so it is the only thing that I see too. In myself, in him, in our home, in all of everything around us.
In that moment, I am now & I am enough.
So dear heart, I want to start off my time here at Roots of She extending that to you…
My hands on your cheeks,
smiling deep from my heart at all that you are,
I see you & you’re beautiful,
just the way you are.
Everything is just as it should be
& you are more
