It's easy to just be an online "presence" without being willing to be vulnerable. I don't want that. I want to form relationships as I form my own #girltribe. I could not do this mom-thing without encouragement and inspiration every day from those around me. And the energy to get out and adventure with a baby and a puppy? Yeah, it's tough. So join me, and we'll do the tough stuff together. You can email me about anything. I'd love to offer encouragement, pray for you, make new friends, share my experiences, learn new things, whatever. I'm here.

I can't promise to put your own needs before those of my family. But I do personally read and take to heart every email I receive, and I take great care with my responses.
