I am a twin mom, teacher, runner, outdoor enthusiast, DIY junkie, voracious reader, and world traveler. In my spare time (ha!), I like to bake decadent desserts and write about whatever comes to mind.

The name “Cracked Vases” came to me many years ago when I was faced with the daunting task of leading 50 men and women on a five month journey around the world. As a self-professed perfectionist, I was overwhelmed by the fear of failure – of not being good enough, patient enough, or “with it” enough to be what they needed. In that moment, I realized the truth is that I never have been, can be, or will be “enough” in my own eyes. Instead, I’m learning (always learning) to embrace weaknesses and vulnerabilities, faults, flaws, and failures as part of the pilgrimage of life.

Thank you for joining me on the journey!
