Hello there. I am so glad that you have come into my playful, simplicity seeking space. I have always had an entrepreneuar’s mind with an educator’s heart. I am a home cooking, oil blending, nature loving mama of a sweet and silly baby girl. ( I’m not that far “off the deep end” in the natural living world though. I don’t judge because, let’s be real…starbucks latte’ makes my day, Amazon Prime is by best friend and Publix Supermarket…. well don’t even get me started on my love affair with a Publix sub with chipotle gouda cheese.) I am also a lucky wife to my hard-working college sweetheart, Zach.
I spend my days bopping around with my little girl, Lydia. We play around on the floor, take nature walks, build with blocks, hike, sing read books, explore outside and once in awhile, if I am lucky… drinking a cup of coffee without having to reheat it five times.
When I’m not playing with Lydia, I sneak in some work. You see, I’m a self proclaimed child development nerd. I love learning about developmental levels and how the activities and environment that we create effects our brain function. I believe that childhood should be cherished, dirt is meant to be played in and songs are meant to be sung. I research, I consult and I pour my heart into helping others learn developmentally appropriate and mindful ways to help their little ones play and grow. My focus is on helping families create a happy home through gentle behavior coaching, family rhythm and minimalism.
I lead a local Attachment Parenting support group and a Play-Based-Learning Parenting group locally in Greenville, SC. Yep, I get to play as my job.
And just in case you were wondering… I can be bribed by black coffee, raspberries and salvage wood furniture.
