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!

Family Rules

Establishing Family Rules seems to be a popular exercise right now.  I liked the idea of thoughtfully crafting and displaying a set of phrases that capture the essence of our philosophy.

After taking a look at many versions (and borrowing from them some phrases that I really liked), I spent some time one morning to develop my ideas--it may be a work in progress, although what I came up with really resonates. It was a meaningful exercise for the start of 2012.

Perhaps our list will inspire you to think about (and even write down)  the values and ideals that are paramount to the way that you live your life and for which you aspire your children to live theirs.


  1. This is great! Did you create this yourself? If so, what program did you use?
    We are starting a renovation project in our mudroom today (trying to hide our washer/dryer) and when it is done, I was thinking about hanging our family rules/values there because it is also the main entrance that we and others use to our house. I was going to just order something off Etsy, but I could probably just do it myself pretty easily.
    You have a great list here!

  2. Mama Tully: your pin on pinterest got me thinking! I did this in word, and will have it printed larger to hang. I would love to have some skills in graphic artistry to really make it stand out, but I like the simplicity of it. I'll look forward to reading yours!

  3. Thank you for sharing, Happy New Year mama!

  4. Mothership: Oh you know, stuff like lose 35 pounds (ouch!), find a diaper/camera bag, plant a flower garden, host a dinner share (just to see what they're all about), start a compost, create a budget and timeline for buying/building our next house, quit my job, take a knitting class, sew a camera strap, embark on my new career in the birthing community, start potty training Roscoe, etc. etc.! I'll send it to you if you're really interested :) I'll probably share a post (maybe, hopefully) about my lists in the next week or so. It's on my list of to-dos, ha!
