It is truly amazing what getting outside of your "comfort zone" can do. Earlier this year I decided that I was going to go after my dreams and do the things that I have always wanted to do! I started a little boutique on ETSY.com and I also started volunteering at a local nature center. I just knew that I didn't want to look back in 5, 10, 20 years and say, "man, I really wish I would have done that." I knew that I love being a nanny, but that I wanted to do something to get into my field. So I started at the nature center working with kids and leading little field experiences. I must tell you that I absolutely LOVE what I am doing there. What could be better than bug nets, kids, nature, and plenty of trails to explore. With a brand new selection of plants and wildlife to learn about an examine I could not be more excited for the summer months! Every day that I go out to the center there are more things blooming and waking up from their long winter nap.
The shop on Etsy.com is my other big endeavor so far this year. My closest girlfriends laugh as they call me the gilryist tom-boy they have ever met. This holds just as true today as it ever did before. I love the feminine things in life but I am not afraid of the dirt and bugs. My love of creating crafty things that I want to share with others is backed by the hope that I can combine the two things I love most, nature and creativity! I hope that you will stop by and check out my collection, it is sure to grow and I can't wait to see where this new adventure may take me in the future.
