the real me
I'm a Fire Sign and a Water Lover (so, a walking oxymoron) who is authentic, honest & laughs a lot.
I live in the Sierra Nevada's in Northern California with my husband and our son, Tucker. We live organic and simply but have a full house including fish, chickens, ducks, a Golden Retriever (Dennis), an Australian Shepherd (Walter) and a rescue cat named Stilly.
Our homestead is self-sustaining, which keeps us busy. I rarely find myself bored, you'll find me hiking, doing yoga, gardening, golfing or reading.
I have a passion for traveling around the world (20 countries & counting), and my life goal is to put my toes in every sea.
