If you ask me, it's a great tragedy of life when we keep the words inside.
My life is particularly ordinary. Most of the words that stick in my brain are whispered through bedtime stories or basement playtime with my kids. Through West Wing marathons and games of Settlers of Catan with my husband. Through email conversations with friends and mid-afternoon coffee breaks by myself. They emerge as I navigate my life experiences as a wife, mom, and regular person who just wants to live this life better.
There's a certain beauty in the mundane though, so I keep combing through the sippy cups, afternoon walks, and loads of laundry for nuggets of truth and beauty.
And then I write about them here.
