Part Cali girl and part Southern peach.
Saved by grace; changed by His always faithful love.
Adventure seeker and travel junkie.
I recently married my best friend and favorite travel buddy, J (a stinkin’ talented photographer), and moved from my beloved Nashville to sunny San Diego. J and I met back in high school at a camp where we both worked and then reunited 11 years later thanks to someone posting a picture on good ol Facebook. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. I’m a graphic designer and illustrator, running my own freelance design company called The Visual Republic. I drool over good design and dream of creating my own line of textiles and home goods.
Being a newlywed has revived my love for cooking, so every night I’m trying a new recipe and getting either a thumbs up or thumbs down from the hubby. I dream of being a decent surfer girl and exploring just about anywhere outside of the good ol U-S-of-A, of hiking mountains and playing in river and oceans, of visiting new cultures meeting new people.
I am have the profound privilege of being a blogger for Compassion International, helping them get out the word about child poverty and, in the process, hopefully get more children sponsored so that they have a brighter future.
Enjoy my collection of stuff that makes my mouth water, my eyes dance with delight and my heart happy. Viva Good.
“I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.” (Henry David Thoreau: Walden)
