Hello there. I’m Holly.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the read. I’m so happy to have you here. This is no coincidence, you and I crossing paths like this… you can peruse through my site and eventually you’ll see why you’re here. 😉

Any who, welcome to my little space on this vast internet. You’re reading the “About” page because you want to know more about me, so here goes. I met my husband in 1997 in a restaurant. I reluctantly sat at the bar, but it was packed and it was the only seat available… not to mention, it was destiny. I saw him and his mustache and it was all over… at least that’s the story he tells. 😉 The rodeo was on and he wanted them to change it to soccer. With his sly moves he asked me if I was watching the rodeo and with my quick wit, I responded “Um, yeah I’m the national champion in the women’s division of rodeo!” Quicker than me, he responded with “No way!  I’m the men’s champ!” And just like that, a seed of love was planted and it’s been blooming ever since.

When we married, I got three men for the price of one–my husband and his two boys from a previous marriage. But I totally claim those boys as mine too. Now we have a total of four boys, and these guys are the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. (I may not feel that way when they’re on my nerves, but it’s true!)

Being surrounded by men, I’ve spent many hours at all kinds of sporting events. Sports are a huge conversation in our home and the only reason we have cable is for ESPN. But, I don’t play sports. Well… I have been playing co-ed kickball for the past 10 years with my husband and some brave fabulous friends…

Anyway, I love my incredible blessing of family. I love watching my boys play their sports and I love the occasional game of around the world in the driveway. I loved it more when they were little and I could win. Now, I stand no chance. I like to consider myself a girlie tomboy–hanging out with my sparkly sneakers and jewelry while playing ball. Yep, that’s me.

So now you’re wondering why is this woman here?  What does she do?

I believe it is a dark world. I remember feeling trapped in a dark room myself (read about it here). Fortunately, my journey took me to a place that I was able to learn enough about myself to allow the light to consume the darkness. Now, I’ve got a spark inside of me that wants to ignite a light in every dark room.

How does it feel in the dark? Depressing, overwhelming, anxious, isolated and in a funk with no strength to fight your way out. Maybe your darkness is a place of discontentment. You’ve tried everything to feel satisfied but to no avail. Maybe your place of darkness is a place of no direction. Feeling lost with no sense of purpose or feeling like you don’t know why you’re here.

So maybe, just maybe, this is why our paths have crossed.

This is why it’s not a coincidence that you’re here. Because you want to live life to its’ fullest!  You’re ready to quit existing in the darkness and I’d be happy to help you. Let me tell you how…
