Seven things about me

1  I am a passionate pioneer.  I intend to live and love each day, with all of its worldly dust, fully, intentionally, and passionately.

2  I count blessings, day by day, moment by moment, breath by breath.  It keeps me present, thankful, and fully blessed.  It also keeps me dancing in the rain.

3  I live on a happy little homestead in northern Minnesota with my loving husband, and four wild-at- heart boys.

4  I love to cook, to create with love, in the kitchen.  or out in the yard on the cookstove, or over a campfire….

5  I started blogging to create a space with which to share with others, in a spirit of love and gratitude, what I have lived, learned, and to simply celebrate the everyday graces of life.

6  I am happiest barefoot, toes rooted firmly in the earth 🙂  or possibly making snow-angels in the winter, with big beautiful flakes floating down from above to gently kiss my face.

7  I dance.  Everyday.    ….in the kitchen… the yard on the way to the barn or chicken coop… the garden….sometimes with a hoop…..with my lovin man…..with my boys…..   

I choose to dance my way through each day.
