The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Question 1: Where did you get your blog title?

Last month, to celebrate my 300th post I solicited questions from my readers. I'm finally answering one of them!!

Lisa from She Ain't Heavy asked: Where did you get your blog title?

ANSWER: When we first conceived the idea for the blog we spent a lot of time brainstorming blog names.

At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and we knew only two things: we were expecting a baby boy and his name would be Roscoe. I debated choosing a blog name that would speak to that particular moment in our lives, or one that could endure.

The image that kept coming to my mind was of glassy blue marbles. They embodied a simpler time, a school playground, the innocence of childhood. It made me think "boy." Still, I knew that we planned to have more kids and I didn't want the title to be relevant only to boys. I needed one that would grow with us.

Then the engineer in me went straight to physics and I remembered that a force is required to change the state of motion of a given object. As expectant parents it felt as though we were on the edge of something great--a force like none we'd ever experienced was about to propel us into the unknown. Later, I wrote a post further developing the sentiment that our lives were set in motion by the birth of our first child, commencing an adventure that will only last a lifetime.

Then I hired the Design Girl to turn my concept into a header and theme. This is what we came up with:

See!? It's the Sears Family in-the-making!

  1. So will little Sears "Roll" on over to join the family when he/she makes an apperance? Also curious why the decision to have 4 children was there a reason for the the number 4?
