My first blog post ever

cropped-eve-logo.jpgDear reader,

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I’m just getting this off the ground and I’m excited to begin sharing various aspects of my life, from beginning to end, not in sequential order.

I guess I should begin this by sharing a little bit myself, generally speaking.

I am a writer based in Portland, Oregon where I live with my husband, and three kids. My oldest is almost all grown and on his own. My middle child is fifteen, a talented dancer, crazy intelligence, and going places before you  know it. My youngest loves art, and spends hours upon hours creating new worlds in her drawings. She is probably the next big thing in the comic book industry.

My husband and I met in the 5th grade. It’s a looong story that led me to him. For now, I’ll say that I am happily married to a man that was made for me. He’s a great human being and loves me and my children, and we LOVE him.

I spend most of my waking hours balancing time between a full time job, a volunteer role that serves veterans, two daughters in school with extracurricular activities, my marriage, and my writing. Definitely not listed in order of priority. Oh, and I try to squeeze CrossFit, or a 3-5 mile run in that schedule at least 4 times a week.

My passion for writing and the importance of making this a greater priority in my life has led me to this blog. I have so much to share, and I have 3 amazing children who need to see their mother pursuing her passion. How could I justify urging my children to chase their dreams if I do not model such a behavior?

I hope my writing provides an authentic example of an artist chasing their dream. That through persistence and hard work, you an accomplish anything. By this, may I inspire you to pursue what you love.

I also hope to get to know other writers and artists of every category. Please leave a comment to introduce yourself and follow my journey. I’ll make a great effort to return emails and correspondence. Thank you again for visiting my blog!
