Story

Small things matter.
Introduction
Here at Small Things I share how we can all do Small Things to positively impact our families, our neighborhoods, our communities and the world. Join me in doing Small Things! 
I also freelance for local and national publications.
My mom died suddenly in 2013. I realized, the small things she did were the most impactful to everyone she met, and I missed the small things about her most. I’m making all the Small Things in my life count!
I married Brad in 2005 and we had 4 children by 2011! Eli, Cora Jane, Cyrus and Tessa. We live in the country of Orange County and have a small orchard (2 trees), a vegetable garden and chickens! I consider myself a homesteader! I love writing, reading, sewing and managing my home. I don’t care if that sounds old fashioned! I also enjoy speaking at local Mom’s groups about the importance of Small Things. I’d love to connect with you.
Bragging rights
I love writing for local and national publications about doing small things for your family, neighbors, and community can change the world. I speak at local mom's groups and manage my family, home and business. I've written for OC Family, The Orange County Register, HomeFront Magazine and multiple guest articles on blogs around the nation.
