Daughter, sister, friend. Wife, mother, dog lover.
I love spending time outside, reading, decorating, and am a lifelong vegetarian. Some know me only as a party planner, baker and globetrotter.
In 2010, after years of thoughtful planning, my husband and I shifted from a quiet life to one filled with global and cultural experiences. Turning dreams into reality, I'm living a life based on experiences vs. things, being instead of having.
We live on four acres of wooded land, backing to a river and a protected forest. It's here where I tend to a tiny vegetable garden, a few fruit trees and containers for herbs.
It's a small life, but one that's full of adventure and joy.
For my family, it was a slow, organic, natural process... shifting from busy career days to a retreat/quiet pace in the evenings/weekends.
In 2002, we made a decision to simplify our lives.
With work/life balance issues reaching a tipping point, we moved from a city with three million people to improve our quality of life.
We have been living slow for 15 years.
