The winner is… SHANNON HAYES!  Congratulations!

Shannon is a good friend from Clemson, South Carolina.  She has been a strong voice in my life – encouraging me to be brave, to live boldly, and laugh loudly.  Shannon has a vibrant soul, generous spirit, and a voice that brings tears to my eyes when she sings.  I love and miss you Shannon!

Thank you to EVERYONE who commented – your words have moved me and have been a gift in this journey of mine.

May you be infused with hope and imagination this day.



    I love living in Durham, NC, am the wife of a fantastic man, and am an artist trying to see beauty and grace in the everyday. I am pressing into balance, rest, sacred rhythms, mercy, and mystery. I love old buildings, cheeseburgers, 80s music, exploring new places, fizzy drinks, and not being in a hurry. Welcome!
