I was born and raised in Australia, but have been living in California since 2003. I'm a divorced mum of three children (a 23-year-old and twin 12-year-olds). We live in Southern California's wine country and I am fueled by coffee, bourbon, and good food (especially donuts).
Our house is in a perpetual state of organized chaos. I'm a collector of moments, not things, and believe in living every day like it could be your last.
I'm forever chasing sunsets and sunrises, love digging through thrift and antique stores, traveling, and laying under the stars with a fire burning.
And, I spend every possible moment in my second home, Kentucky, with the love of my life, Mike (who I met on Twitter).
The oldest (Jay): Automotive Technology college student, scuba diver, monitor lizard owner, and obsessed with working on his two cars that have taken over our garage.
Twin A (Marisol): she who runs the house, middle schooler, hoodie collector, turtle obsessed, organization addict, rap music lover, future interior designer.
Twin B (Flynn): middle schooler; daredevil, history and non-fiction fanatic, video game player, LEGO and Mega Bloks collector, golfer, fisherman.
