Welcome to my new community. My name is Christy. I’m a wife, mom, homemaker, runner, and a maybe writer and artist. I want to share my journey with you as I try my hand at savoring my second childhood, the one where I am the adult in charge. I lead the charge to forge the connections, make the magic and to pause and savor the beauty and chaos of growing and playing.
