The Story Begins
You just have to step into your dream
Thanks for being here!
This is a safe space to find inspiration, encouragement, laughter, joy, and hope.
I started my writing journey 12 years ago when my husband and I moved overseas. It was beautiful therapy to write about life in different places to share with family and friends.
In 2017, after we returned home from our travels around the world, I wrote a poem for my dad as a gift for his 80th birthday. A few short months later, that poem birthed The Dream Tree about a little boy, a dog, and the gift of dreaming.
The Dream Tree and other stories to come are playfully inspired by real life experiences using imagination and seeing life through a child's eyes.
A little saying I used to tell our children each day as they left the house was, "Be wise, use good judgement, and do the right thing." Now our children are grown and this little saying has been passed on to our grandchildren. May it be a guide for you throughout your day and life.
Be well friends - mind, heart and body. Thank you for being you!
You have a gift. So today, make your dream into reality!
“You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.”
- Dr. Seuss
