I'm blessed to be the mother of two amazing (and hilarious) kids, and wife to one amazing guy. We are a southern California family through and through–it's not unusual to find skateboards lying around the house or even surfboard fins poking out of various parts of our garage. It's how we do and in fact it's how my husband and I met–through the action sports industry. Thank you skateboarding.
"Be the first. Be the light." Often times you'll see this as my sign off. Simply put, "Be the first" is a reminder to be the first to hold open a door, be the first to smile at a stranger coming my way, be the first to let up and let the driver into my lane ... you get the idea. And "Be the light" is simply a reminder to be my best self. Be the best example of a human being. Be the best extension of our Source, God. These are words I practice to live by everyday (because nobody's perfect, nor should we ever aspire to be). Not just for myself or my own kids, but for complete strangers and everyone in between. We owe it to ourselves, everyone around us, and this planet. Don't you think?
Be the first. Be the light.
