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!

It's his birthday, thirty years down.

Andy turns thirty on Sunday.  We've now known each other for half our lives and been together almost as long.

It's funny because he acts like he dreads even the thought of turning another year older, this milestone in particular, but I just roll my eyes because to me it feels like this decade is his for the taking, and I know he's just being modest.

He's on the cusp of living his professional dreams, in a career that challenges and fulfills him at his core. In his heart he's a family man, devoted to all of us in ways that inspire me and that gratify my deepest needs. He's a visionary and a man of action, but he's a team player so I've always felt integral to his big ideas and valued for my role and for my contribution. Over the years we have developed a shared strategy in life that keeps us always moving forward and impassioned for what lies ahead of us. It's a characteristic of our relationship that I've always found alluring.

In truth he's just getting started and this birthday is his jumping off point for the next 10 years. Growing our family, laying down roots, chasing our passions, realizing dreams that started as penciled notes passed back and forth in 5th period. It's all about cultivating our life together and trusting our plan, and relying on the discipline that we established in our twenties to build something great in our thirties.

Tomorrow we celebrate. Following his lead, there will be no surprise 30th birthday bash. There won't even be a party. He and I have blocked the day out and we are going to spend it together, just the two of us. We have simple plans that involve the outdoors and good food and uninterrupted time.

Tomorrow we will play and reflect and dream some more.
