About Me

If you had asked me fifteen years ago where I’d be today, I have no idea what I would have said but it wouldn’t be this . . .

I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart, an attorney at an international law firm, a marathon runner + coach, and a mom. I also love to write, play the piano, sing and cook healthy + yummy food. (Okay, mostly healthy. Always yummy.)

I started my first blog in January 2010 as a way to embrace the many hats that I wear in life. That first blog quickly became an outlet for me to write about my efforts to balance my work life + personal passions with gratitude + optimism. Blogging also became the gateway for a new passion :: photography. As a new mom, my role as photographer has taken center stage, and I am absolutely loving it. For now, it is “just a hobby” that I enjoy sharing with my family + friends. But if you ask nicely, I bet you could convince me to take photos for you, especially if you’re rocking a baby bump or have little ones. 😉

My new website + blog launched in December 2012. And I am thrilled to have created this pretty new space in which to share my stories + photos!

I’m all about alliteration.

I’m obsessed with Nutella.

I’m just not “right” until I’ve had a good run.

I live in a little piece of paradise in the city just off the shores of Lake Grapevine, Texas.

I love being a mom more than I ever thought possible.

And I share this wonderful life with my husband + best friend, Brad.
