I Am Her
No one is you, and that is your power
I am a woman of passion. I like to get my hands dirty. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Love is my anthem.
I believe that there is nothing more beautiful than someone following their "spark", their heart, their "true north". So I seek to inspire, to empower.
I work with my hands. I put pen to paper. I create sculptures. I handcraft cards. I give away little pieces of my heart.
I smile at strangers. I compliment what I like. I refer to people in terms of endearment. I say “thank you” and genuinely mean it.
I believe that it costs nothing to dream, and everything not to. I am not afraid of doing the work— leaning into the uneasiness, opening myself up for potential “failure”. Rather, I am afraid of not trying— of looking back and thinking "what if".
I am not a victim of circumstance, I choose the life that I lead. I may not be able to choose the cards that I am dealt, but I can choose to make the most of them. I will not allow autoimmune disorders, heartbreakers, liars, cheaters, or thieves steal my joy. I will not let the world make me hard. I am the author of my story, the CEO of my life, the artist of my canvas— and I am going to create an effing masterpiece. The only person that I am destined to become is the person I decide to be.
I eat slowly, sing loudly, hug tightly, and breathe deeply.
I rock messy buns, hats, scarves, layers, and the quasi-frequent F-bomb.
I celebrate the “wins” — big ones, small ones, and everything in-between.
I embrace my old soul, waking before the sun peeks its head out, and often going to bed soon after it sets.
I am a work in progress. I am an optimist. I am soft. I am vulnerable. My heart is easily broken. But there is strength in my fragility.
I am a Lover. Dreamer. Wife. Friend. HealthNut. Artist. Outdoor Enthusiast. Yogi. Nerd. Optimist. Vegetarian. Upcycler. Registered Nurse. Personal Trainer. Coloradan.

Urban Veggie and Freeliving
To me, Freeliving is about living with intent; actively pursuing the life that you want. It is about listening to that inner spark, your "yes", your authentic self— and fanning that flame.
