i am inspired by the natural world; the sun, moon, stars, sky, oceans, plants & growing food. i love hiking, swimming and romping around parks with my husband or friends. i am inspired to rise early, light a morning fire, and listen to the sounds of home surrounding me…crackling wood, the washer churning away, birds chirping at the feeders just outside my windows, and my kittens competing for my attention. these slow moments bring me joy.
