live it to give it is all about love and connection. Being authentic. Living our lives and sharing it with others. Life is messy and so is this blog. Somedays my organized coach self shows up. Other days it's my vulnerable author. There's a mom that lives inside me alongside a wife, friend, creative muse, ponderer extraordinaire, and multitude of others. I'll introduce you to people who inspire me and offer a peek into my world that very likely intersects with your world. In other words, I will share life in its full, glorious mess with you. I'm honored you're here and I hope you'll come back soon!!  Cheers! Kayce

They tug at each other’s hair. They’re perplexed by how different they seem and how close they are. They love each other. They are confused siblings.

On Speaking, Playing, Weeping, & Weaving…

For me, speaking to a welcoming group is like an organic, holistic, mood-altering drug that helps me slip out of all I think I should be and step into who I fully am.

The Day after the "Big" Day

Life turns on a dime. Cliché but true. We practice being calm on the good days, so the bad ones don’t eat us alive. We practice when everything is going “well” because you never know when it will turn sour.
