Welcome! I'm Lori

I’m closer to 50 than 40, and that is fine with me! I’m married to a multi-talented, hard-working man and mother to an adventurous 8-year-old who keeps me laughing. We live in a small house and have a small ranch in a small Texas town. I am a Texan, born and raised. I have lived in nearly every corner of this great state, from beaches to tumbleweeds to tall pine trees.

I seek to find the joys in life through simple living. For me, this means eliminating things that steal joy and filling my life with activities and items that energize me and allow me to live a more meaningful life.

I recently mustered up the courage to chase after a dream and become a writer. My mission now is to encourage others to take steps to do the same.
