Home of Vulnerability //

I recently reread "Eat, Pray, Love" for the third time after going through a wildly intense and unexpected season of pain, transition, healing and growth in my life. The process of shedding an old layer and stepping into our new skin, while beautiful, can be excruciating and uncomfortable. My desire is to step out of [...]

Running The Race

Nathan and I began our marriage by literally running. We were so overjoyed as we raced through the crowds, raindrops, and bubbles to our getaway car.
