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

I see the multitude of faces I encountered, hear the sounds of morning call to prayer and honking horns, and smell the aromas of sweet incense and fresh cow dung. I ponder the current fear mongering and terrorist tactics in the world that threaten our free way of life.

Arriving & Returning: Unpacking India & Nepal (2)

It's good to be home and it feels strange. So quiet. No dogs barking or horns honking. Only the sound of Aslan purring and the occasional pouring rain on our metal roof. I feel the pull to watch Hulu or Netflix. I could easily get lost in there while my mind begs to grasp where I've been, where I'm going, and what do I do with it all?

Stepping into the Mess: Unpacking India & Nepal

Ten days ago, I returned from a life-changing photo tour to India and Nepal. I’ve been “unpacking” in my journals and wondering where this story begins … or ends. Ha! I’m coming to understand there is no such thing.
