I'm an outgoing introvert. Confusing, I know. It took me over 2 decades to figure that out in my early 30's. 

I'm located in Portland, Oregon by way of Dallas, TX, but excited and more than willing to travel. So far, I've traveled to 4 of the 7 continents and would love to increase that number. We took a huge leap of faith & pursued our dream of living in the PNW the Summer of 2015. We have been blessed with two precious boys and a funny & grandpa-like golden retriever, George. My husband has been mistaken for Ryan Gosling more than once. (Not a bad problem to have.)

I live for the Summers in Oregon. If I'm not at the beach, you'll find me picking fruit on a local farm, making my own jam, gardening, on a hike, exploring a park with my boys, or attempting another family or self-portrait. We'd love to have our own homestead someday. The older I become the more I embrace my "old soul". We haven't had cable for years and it's been great. I miss TexMex food, but I make killer guacamole.  After my first son was born we started removing toxins from our lifestyle as much as possible, which lead me to become a Young Living distributor and Beautycounter Consultant. I'm passionate about educating/informing others about living a healthy lifestyle.
