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!

The Modern Nature House, an Update with New Images

We continue to make slow and steady progress on the design of our home.

Most recently the plans were updated by the civil engineer to address storm water management and grading, and discussions continue with the structural engineers to ensure sound construction.

Within the next few weeks a permit set will be completed—the minimum standard required for evaluation by the city to meet code—and these documents can also be used to bid for contractors.

Then we'll begin to develop the more detailed construction documents that will contain the final finishes, fixtures, and materials.

Why is this all taking so long? Because it is. :)

We met with Scott last Thursday night to hear an update on foundation and framing plans, and to discuss topics of land grading, the position of the driveway, siding options, deck and pergola designs, and storm water management options that conform to The Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act regulations. Kind of dry, but necessary and important.

We're still considering different concepts for exterior materials, and shade structure designs for the back deck. The budget is simultaneously coming together, and we are reaching out to lenders to secure financing.  Maybe we'll actually break ground by the end of the year.

Here are a few images of the latest iterations of the house to date:
