Hello there ~ I'm Leah
The first photo is a fancy one the family photographer we use took for me, but the second is much more likely what I will look like if you met up with my while I was living my ordinary, everyday life. Messy hair, likely hat or ponytail, wrinkles by my eyes and sun spots.
Here are a few more things about me: I grow flowers, and some veggies more to cut down on the grocery bill than out of passion. I bake bread and homeschool my kiddos. My twitter bio used to read as: Living life with joyful passion. Trying to follow Jesus. Wife. Mama to three kiddos. Writer, lifelong learner, IBCLC, volunteer, traveler, gardener, creator. As of 2017 it now also reads cancer survivor. Having cancer changed everything.
On instagram I post lots of shots of my kids, the sky and any body of water I can get close to. I feel God the most by the sea or under the sky, and I learn so much from the ordinary disciplines of showing up for daily life, so I’m afraid I can’t stray too much from those teachers.
We have three kiddos Liam (13), Raine (10) and Haven-Kate (who I always referred to as the baby but we have no babies anymore and is eight!) Being a mother is amazing, I love it all, even though some days I feel overwhelmed and cannot begin to get to all the things I would ideally like to get to.
We are lifelong learners, which is my preferred way of referring to our version of homeschooling. We all love to learn and our main goals for homeschooling are family connection and having kids who know how to discover and pursue their own unique passions and goals.
So hello and happy to meet you. I hope you have brought your questions and your doubts. I hope you have brought your hurts and your dearest joys, because this is a place where I hope you find permission to be yourself, out and about in all areas of your life, just as your creator intended.
