Hi! I’m Darcie. Welcome to my blog!


I am:

I love:

  • travel. The further I go, the more I grow.
  • real food. Attending foodie events and festivals is one of my favorite indulgences.
  • artisan goods. Most any noun preceded by the term ‘handcrafted’ or ‘small-batch’ is sure to send my heart fluttering.
  • wine. From swirling and sniffing to sipping and savoring, discovering bold, peppery Zins and crisp, fruity whites is an inspired pursuit.

I believe:

  • in a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. In spite of the trends, I don’t eat gluten-free or paleo. I’m no CrossFit junkie. I exercise regularly and eat a little bit of everything–balance is key to my best life.
  • in valuing experiences. We collect moments, not things.
  • in seeking to improve. I want to be and to do a little better each new day.
  • in miracles. I serve a God who surprises and delights.
  • in straight talk. I say what I mean and I mean what I say.

Your comments truly make my day.  Just ask my husband; he’ll tell you that I mope around the house and unnecessarily slam cupboard doors when one of my posts goes seemingly unnoticed.  So, please, for the sake of my family, leave me a comment.  I’d love to chat with you!
