I was born and raised in a small town located in the Foothills of Northern California, where my father was born and raised and my mother grew up around, where both of my parents run their own small businesses, and where my siblings still live. A piece of me will always call that area home, but I decided to expand my life outside of California without looking back. I followed a boyfriend to Texas on a whim to live larger than the confines of a small town. That relationship evolved into a marriage and a life long friendship that I will forever be grateful for.
In 2011, I got pregnant with our first child and we decided the best option for our family would be for me to stay at home to raise our baby. 8 years and another child later, I am still doing the Stay-at-home mom gig full-time. It hasn’t been easy and there are a lot of times that I want out, but its what works best for us in this chapter of our lives.
When our daughter was a little over a year old, I went back to school and finished my Associate’s Degree in Psychology. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but one of my greatest personal accomplishments.
Outside of being a mom, I thoroughly enjoy learning and practicing Yoga and Meditation. I’m one of those people who never tires out on personal development audio books. I believe that people can heal a ton of common ailments through emotional release work, essential oils, and meditation. I also think that people can change pieces of themselves if they want to. Writing is a way for me to escape, heal, and process what life has thrown my way. I have kept journals since I could write fluently and it is the one thing that I can always turn to.
My goal is to put my writing out into the world for others to benefit from. Maybe you relate, maybe you are inspired, maybe you learn something from me, or maybe you just read along for a temporary escape from whatever you’re dealing with. Whichever your reason is for being here today, welcome.
