About Me

This is a place of simple reflection from the view of one imperfect girl’s heart and one simple family’s journey to walking in freedom and grace. I am a homeschooling mother of a teen boy and his younger sister and married to my beloved since 1996. My eldest child has moved onto other full time tertiary education and we happily choose to homeschool our daughter for as long as possible.. Despite all my faults, I live a simple but abundant life. My days are filled with what I love, my family, creative art, nature, homemade whatever I can, essential oils and all things soothing and comforting with a hint of adventure.

We’ve been on this homeschooling gig since 2008, but really it started from the moment my children arrived earth-side. I’ve been through waves of change in our ten plus years of homeschooling.  Great literature and conversations are a big part of our days. I TRUST that my home learning experience will look vastly different to that of others and you know what, it should. And I TRUST that this is the most fulfilling adventure I have ever embarked upon.

I want to share with you my authentic experience. Why don’t you brew a soothing cuppa and lets spend some time together walking in the wildflowers.
