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

#27 Listen. Respond. Savor.

I woke up before the house did. Even Copper, my cat was slightly miffed as he stretched from his safe blanketed cocoon. The window was calling me and there it was. I had to capture what my phone camera could not...

#19 Grant Us Light

Such a simple thing, the striking of the match against the box the flame as it leaps from the tip of the wood the smell of fire, and poof, like magic they are alight.
