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!

water garden at Lewis Ginter

The water garden at Lewis Ginter opened a few weekends ago and I think we were among this year's first visitors.  I can't help but to buy the boys coordinating outfits, swimsuits included.  Rash-guards offer great spf protection, and these little swimmers came from Hanna Andersson. (I just checked and they're on sale right now for only 16 bucks!)

Swim diapers are required in the water garden, and while we gave up cloth shortly after Merritt was born, I still have a huge and awesome stash.  Did you know that a cloth diaper with the insert removed = swim diaper?  It's true.

The water play area is on the cozy side, but there is good visibility and the environment is well situated for independent play--I enjoyed sitting on the sidelines observing the kids in action and doling out snacks.

If you're local, have you been to the water garden yet?


  1. I love coordinating outfits! That was one of the many reasons I wanted a 2nd daughter, lol! What a great summer spot! We have a splash park near our house and we go multiple times a week during the summer since we don't have a pool.
    I'm so glad you are doing the NoPloBlaMo for June! I enjoy reading your posts :)

  2. Thanks, I'm excited about blogging every day too, it takes the pressure off, I feel like I can write about whatever! Coordinating outfits are a small joy in the boys clothing department, which leaves a lot to be desired. Although I have a found a few fun stores like H&M and Polarn O. Pyret that give me something to work with!
