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!

Homemade Play Dough

It's snowing here!

We learned to make this play dough during Roscoe's time at the Richmond Waldorf School.  It's a nice squishy dough that is best for sensory play, rolling out, making imprints, and other activities that don't require it to hold shape--not so great for cutting shapes or making figures--but really fun just the same.

Play dough:
3 cups flour
1/4 cup salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
food coloring

Stir together the liquid ingredients including the food coloring. Stir in the flour until you reach a consistency that you're happy with. You can add a few drops of peppermint or orange essential oil if you'd like.

The dough can be stored in a plastic baggie and left in the fridge when not in use.

Happy snow day!


  1. Roscoe is getting so tall! Most adorable! Love GMA

  2. Fresh play dough is also the *softest* I just encountered the recipe at our play group & thought, 'Aaah, so that's how mom used to do it.'
