The Mokes—because, wow—but also because I am usually pants-less while blissfully distracted by two sweet girls!

 blog - simple life big dreams




As a writer and mom of two young kids (and the daughter of a therapist and a singer-songwriter), I over-analyze everything. And while he never complains, it's probably time to share my rants with someone other than my husband. :) In all seriousness, I started this blog because productive habits and time management are critical to my success and the well-being of my family. I research these topics obsessively and a blog felt like a great way to honor my findings.

Simple Life Big Dreams offers inspiration and insight into maintaining a simple life (in a chaotic world) while chasing big dreams. Topics I research and write about  include: inspiration, time-management, getting the most out of your dreams, parenting,

and—of course—writing.
