About the Blog

Hi, and welcome!

It’s taken me 40+ years to figure out what is most important in life. You want to know the secret? Whatever brings you joy. Here’s my joy, and what this blog is all about:

Motherhood:

I’m mom to a pair of gorgeous girls, one a tween and one brand new to the world. I’ll chronicle my adventures of being an older mom (I’m solidly in my 40s) to a new baby starting her journey and to a girl who is entering a new and challenging phase of life, and the lessons they both teach me.

Motivation:

It’s important to me to pass on my life lessons to the girls and women who are living life and need to know they’re not alone; finding the truth in the overwhelming avalanche of “Insta-motivation” out there that tells us how to live our best life. So I call myself a “Troothsayer“. I tell it like it is, and hopefully can help you find your truth, too.

Middling Life:

To me, that’s finding joy and satisfaction and happiness in everyday life, ordinary life — middling life. Moments with my husband and children, coffee with friends, sitting on the deck in the sunshine, reading a good book, a cool breeze, eating the damn donut.

There’s so much vying for our attention, so much telling us that we need <enter thing here> in order to live a fulfilling and worthy life. I’m here to prove otherwise. The best life is middling life. And I embrace it fully.

So thank you for joining me on my journey. I look forward to sharing with you, and to you sharing with me.
