Somewhere I heard, to figure out your true calling in life, think back to what you really loved doing when you were around 12 years old. Well, I was outdoors as much as possible, acing my art classes, and playing around with my momma’s vintage Singer.

Fast forward so many years, and, here I am. A born crafter. A schooled artist. Certified trainer and lifestyle coach. The owner of Take It Outside! Fitness. Living in one of the most beautiful parts of the US– Portland, Oregon. Living a life that I love. It’s taken me time to get here, and some days I still wonder what the heck I’m doing. But I try to stay true to what I believe in. Getting by doing what I believe in. Doing what makes me –and hopefully those around me–healthy and happy.

So welcome to my blog! I hope you’ll share in my excitement for tasty, healthy foodie stuff. . . making new things out of old stuff. . . how activity and creativity makes us smart, cool, and healthy. . .maybe even my latest dumper find. . . how to think outside the gym (and the mall). . . draw outside the lines. . . like ourselves. . . and have fun while were here.

Thanks for sharing!

peace and health,
