Greetings! I’m Vanessa, a 30-something “Domestic Goddess” (a.k.a. Stay at Home Mom). I think I’m a pretty awesome person (though sometimes I forget). Most likely, you are a pretty rad human being as well. I find something gratifying in the fact that we are all connected as people and we all want to be loved. Connection to others is something that I crave deeply so I seek community in the many things I do: fitness (running, yoga, Ultimate Frisbee), parenting, nutrition, and blogging (to name a few).
Why This Blog?
I began a topical blog last summer and discovered that I find satisfaction in writing, telling stories, expressing my views, and getting feedback from a community of people. After much thought, I decided to transition away from the topical blog to this new blog. I chose the fairly generic blog name Dreaming in Earth Tones, allowing me the freedom to take my blog in new directions as I change and grow. “Dreaming in Earth Tones” does hint at a few things about me: I prefer a wardrobe of earth tones (browns, greens, oranges); I enjoy nature; I want to promote growth in myself and others; and I often wear rose-colored glasses. Also, I consider myself pretty “down to earth” and that’s how I chose my current tagline: Aspiring to live. Healthy. Grateful. Simple.
