I'm the mother of two growing girls (age 7 & 9) and happily married to my best friend (over 14 years). I am an optometrist by day. And I am an artist/crafter by night life, since creativity doesn't stop at night, or in my craft space--it fills my life. I am a fairly new runner (I began May 2011) contemplating a second marathon, having completed my first in December 2012 (CIM). I am a newly awakened optimist doing my best to cherish all that I have. I love being inspired and find it everywhere, whether it's on a run or a Pinterest board. I run on inspiration!
