A Bit About Me
“THERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOUR DAY AND THEN THERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOUR LIFE”
A Beautiful Mess
As a busy mom raising 4 kids by age 30, I quickly became an expert in structure and simplicity – for the sake of our wellness and a well-enjoyed life!
I have always loved nurturing my family as a wife and mom here on Eden Roc. But at times, I found myself feeling overwhelmed – frustrated and bound to a chaotic life. My husband and I were tag teaming to juggle sporting events all weekend, after-school activities, mile-long to-do lists and then there was always DINNER! My health and happiness were getting lost in the daily shuffle.
This wasn’t my idea of a thriving home.
So I began putting family time on our calendar. Sunday night dinners quickly became a favorite, when we would share our week, play games or share our plans for the future.
As I continued to carve out more of these intentional moments, I was reminded that everything I needed to live a life I loved was right in front of me – my husband, my children, my extended family and my good friends.
Also as I began making little improvements to my lifestyle, I began feeling like myself again. Naturally, my family followed my lead.
The simplicity and structure we brought into our home created more space for happiness, success, love, connection and purpose - all the ingredients of a life well lived. Today, I’m immensely grateful to share a healthy, well-lived life with my 5 favorite amazing humans who I continually learn from and grow with.
I hope that through my blog, Eden Inspired Living, you will become inspired and begin making little improvements as you go. Ultimately, I hope you will look and feel your best, build a thriving home full of loving, healthy humans and soak up all the precious moments along the way.
THE FONDEST MEMORIES ARE MADE WHEN GATHERED AROUND THE TABLE
I’m not afraid to admit that I think about food – a lot! My Italian heritage makes food part of my DNA and my kitchen the heart of our thriving home. I love creating something tasty, yet healthy and sharing that with others. But also, our table is where family and friends gather to share our day, cry our tears, and discuss plans for the future. It’s where we build our inseparable bonds.
A Few More Of My Favorite Things
I’m overly blessed with an incredibly supportive husband, my four amazing children, and my three fur babies (2 wheaten terriers and 1 chowski).
I love herbal teas, fresh-pressed juice, and lemon cookies all in equal measure, but balance is key.
When I’m not creating or cooking, you will find me on a lacrosse field watching my children play, curled up with a great book, or down at the beach with my family, soaking up the serenity.
As I adventure through life, I hope you will stay awhile, be inspired by my blog, and share your thoughts with me, as we create a life you love in your own thriving home.
