Hi there! Thanks for taking a moment to stop by.
I’m Natalie and I write about roads–the ones we take to work and the grocery store, the ones we wander on a Sunday afternoon or a week away, and especially the road that is life. Paying attention along the way makes, to borrow from Frost, all the difference.
Our roads take us from where we are to where we need to be and while we’ve been called to run with endurance the race set before us, none of us travels the same road. The curves, the hills, the conditions that make up each one is unique.
Because stories encourage me to embrace the challenges of life, I write stories of the road, ones I hope will encourage fellow travelers to slow down once in a while, to pause and ponder the path before pressing on again.
I share a road with my husband of twenty-three years, our three children, and a gracious and merciful God. These relationships set the tone and direction for my days and my life. We live in the midwest at the end of a long lane in the woods with a fluctuating number of cats, bees, frogs, and fish.
A few of my favorite things: People (especially one at a time). Meandering and meaningful conversation. Making our home. Morning. Silence. Solitude. Books and music. Yellowstone. Lilacs and daffodils. Snow. Always snow.
