My kids and I chopped down a Christmas tree for the second year in a row. We used to buy them, but they have gotten pretty expensive. Besides, it's a fun memory to drive around the woods in the snow and pick out our own tree.
This blog began as a way to stay in touch with family and friends, but my purpose has expanded to include indigenous cultures, spirituality, nature connection, and family history.
My blogging is sustained by a few guiding values. First, my blog should add value to the world. Second, much of what I write points back to simple things like spending time with loved ones or connecting with the earth. Finally, I prefer to write about my own first-person experiences. My greatest contribution to the world is to live courageously and to always speak from my heart.
