My SPARK Blog

My intention is to inspire you by sharing stories that hopefully will inspire and connect you to new possibilities, or if nothing else a different point of view. I’ll share the tools that I use to continually SIMPLIFY. BE. CREATE. an ever-evolving life that is fun, with full self-expression and kindness inside + out.
