I love the simple things in life: Looking at the clouds, lying on my garden hammock reading, drinking coffee with my husband Tyson on the deck, having long conversations over wine with my parents, playing board games with siblings and friends, reading my Bible on the front steps in the morning. I find that it’s these things which make life extraordinary. Unfortunately, I get so busy sometimes that I forget stop and actually enjoy – and value – these moments.

This blog is as much a reminder for me as an encouragement to you to step out of this busy life for just a moment and appreciate what it is that makes life beautiful, humorous and meaningful.

It’s also about my travel adventures, my cooking mishaps and my dream of opening my own lodge: The Lodge Project.
