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!

One for the books

As independent and adventurous as Roscoe is, and for all the freedom he has been given to explore, it's a small wonder that Thursday night marked Roscoe's first major trauma.

We can only guess that he tripped on his own two feet--running full speed, no doubt--and made contact with a set of unforgiving free weights on his fall to the ground (no one actually witnessed the event). In less than the two minutes required to hike the stairs to our loft, a purple contusion protruded madly off the front of his brow. Caught in the middle of a work day, and alarmed by the size and severity of the injury as it continued to swell, I quickly signed off for the afternoon.

A nagging concern was a possible bone fracture. In an effort to avoid subjecting him to unnecessary procedures and possibly grueling wait times I opted for his pediatrician's office over the emergency room. They confirmed that neither his eye nor the surrounding muscles were damaged, and agreed that the severity of the swelling was extraordinary--we were ordered directly to the hospital for an x-ray.

Luckily, everything checked out just fine, and all that lingers now is a first shiner.


  1. Oh no, glad to hear that there was no serious damage! I keep thinking we might end up with our first trip to the emergency room as Madame very quickly decides she is done sitting but has not learned how to gentely lower herself onto her back or tummy.

    He does not look overly bothered in his adorable owl hat though! Just think of the stories you can tell his girlfriends one day!

  2. That hat is just too cute for words!!! LOVE IT!!Poor little guy. Hope he healed well.
