I am a believer. A wife. A mother. A student. A writer. An entrepreneur. However, who I am runs deeper than these titles, and I’m learning to seek + embrace her too.
〰️I love thrifting. It’s my therapy. I use to be ashamed of our second hand items as a child; maybe now it reminds me of home.
〰️I’ve always struggled with my introversion. I envied the girls who were bubbly + outgoing + easily friends with anyone. I no longer berate myself for this. I seek rest + solitude often.
〰️I started writing to process my pain. Many of my wounds have been healed, and as my pastor says “the scars aren’t there to remind you of the pain, but of the healing.” Amen.
〰️I grew up near the beach, and sitting on the salty coast with a good book in my hand is heaven to me.
〰️I just started reading poetry. Currently soaking up all of Mary Oliver’s work.
〰️I’m an enneagram 1w9 and I’m exploring more about what this means.
〰️I have four children; they are my greatest teachers. They motivate me to work on myself + remind me to nourish my progress. I pray they see their worth through the ways in which their mama has learned to see her own.
〰️I love Jesus.
〰️I enjoy tending to my orchids. They are strong + beautiful, just like a woman.
〰️As a grandma, I hope to one day sip tea in my own used bookstore, beside a window where the sun hits the orchids draped lazily across the sill. I’ll nibble on fresh chocolate croissants + smile.
This page started as an outlet to express my writing… and now I’m afraid to admit that I’ve started to hide behind my graphics. I do hang in my stories quite a bit, but sharing this photo is an outward expression of an inward desire to change how I show up here. I want to connect more with you, and i know it takes vulnerability to do that.
So here goes.
I don’t know what brought you to my page, but I’m glad you’re here. If you feel inclined, introduce yourself. 🤍
