“to live life fully + without fear, building relationships, pursuing + promoting whole health, nurturing creativity + learning, bringing joy to others, and worshiping my creator every day“
hello + welcome!
my name is sierra. i’m married to jon, the beekeeper – mama to charlotte, the little bee – and puppy mom to lulu, our bull terrier. we live where our bees reside, following them wherever they may go – washington state, most of the time – montana, during the summer – and a bit of california in the winter. i’ve always loved to write – handwritten “books” in fourth grade, countless journals through high school and college, and blogging over the past several years. mostly, i write for myself – to document our family and all the little everyday stuff that i wouldn’t get down without the instant gratification of the “publish” button… i also write for others – just one person who finds joy or connection from my words is enough.
i have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. i’m a dabbler with commitment issues — i want to do and be almost everything. i love to learn. reading a book cover to cover is at the top of my happy list. An almost equally divided introvert/extrovert. i love grammar and diagramming sentences but you’d never know it from how i write on the internet. i’m an idea generator – while i can follow through, i’ve learned to take the time to mull it all over and make sure i love it enough to see it through to completion. i scrapbook and take pictures. i love reading cookbooks almost as much as i love eating chocolate — 80% dark and delicious only, please. i love to travel – most vacations end up being road trips – apparently, as we spend a significant amount of our work time driving – it’s also our first choice activity for vacation – ?!? –
my favorite topics are almost always health and wellness. clean eating… a clean eating, vegetarian cookbook (you won’t see me til i’ve read it cover to cover)… yoga, all different kinds of exercise, green-ing the home and natural healing can all have me breaking out in a happy dance. currently, i’m immersing myself in all things essential oils. they are amazing+powerful — i’m so excited to be learning and sharing with others about all their benefits.
i love the Lord, and i love children. i’ve spent most of my life caring for kids in one way or another – the latest – my day job, and night job – and all day joy – taking care of and teaching my little girl.
