why I write

I’ve always been in love with the power of words. When I was seven, I “authored and illustrated” my first series of books, all about my sweet golden retriever (my childhood love for dogs would later develop into an obsession).

My love for writing only grew stronger, and I never understood why so many seemed to dislike it in school. Writing possesses more poise and impact than candid comments ever could. Fast forward through four years of journalism school, followed by a professional communications career, and it is a passion that has grown to define me.

My perspective comes from many lenses: I’m a career woman transitioning to full-time motherhood. I’m community-minded, but also an introvert. I grew up in Ohio, but now enjoy life on the move as a proud Navy wife.

I have invested much of my time in telling others’ stories, but I have neglected to digest my own. This blog is nothing more than a selfish way for me to reflect on the fast-turning pages of my own life story, while hopefully inspiring others to revel in the most important moments of theirs as well.
