She Lives Free

I have been abundantly blessed! I am married to my handsome high school best friend. Together we have two darling daughters, and a golden retriever, Daisy. Some of my favorite ways I am grateful to spend time in this grand adventure called life: I love to craft, create, observe nature, and watch plants grow and change throughout the seasons. I adore Spring and Summer and would follow them all over the world if I could. My favorite colors are pink, yellow & orange ~ like sunrises & sunsets. I am a lover of Jesus, life & laughter, soul-stirring music & movies, long walks, long talks, photography, gardening, tennis, zumba, rollerblading, latin & swing dancing, and the peaceful bliss found in a big steaming cup of coffee alongside a good book in the mornings!
I write at She Lives Free because I want to make this life count and I want to encourage others to do the same!
