How much do you want to know? Here’s the short and sweet version…

I’m just a gal who decided that I wanted and needed more than the miserable career I had been trapped in for far too long. So, for my 34th birthday, I quit! For the first time in my life, I had no plans. My only plan was to do whatever the hell I wanted to and be happy doing it. Three weeks later, Live Wild With Love was born!

Looking for more deets? Here’s a more in-depth look on how my brain works and how it formed Live Wild With Love…

A dream. Now, I’m not talking about the, “ever since I was a little girl” type dream. I mean a literal dream. My dreams are usually quite intense and sometimes even premonitory. This one was different. It had no storyline and the only thing I could see was a dense, black figure. A figure that resembled the side profile of a person. I kept calling out to it and it never answered. It just stood there and kept gazing off into the distance. Finally, I stopped calling out and decided to just feel and listen. What I felt was the most intense feeling of love I’ve ever felt! It was like nothing I’ve ever felt in this world. When I woke, I could still feel its intensity and I kept feeling it for months afterwards. That morning though, different ideas around love kept flooding into my mind. The one thought that I kept circling back to was the history behind the spoon ring I had inherited from my grandparents.

My grandpa had made this ring for my grandma and now, it’s mine to take care of. I wear it whenever I need a little boost of confidence or to feel like my grandma and grandpa are with me. My grandpa was a maker of many things, but this piece is the one that I’ve always loved. It was a symbol of their love. Their wild, unique, yet simple kind of love. They always traveled around, photographing all the things, and had silly stories to go right along with all those adventures. They lived wild and did it all with love. That’s what I want for myself and for anyone who owns one of my pieces! I want you to embrace and express your wild side, your uniqueness, your simplicity, and your love. Good, pure love.

I value the history behind my grandma’s spoon ring and know that it’s filled with more memories than I’ll ever know. The dream I have for each of my pieces is that they too become cherished heirlooms. I dream that they are worn for centuries to come and filled to the brim with your memories and stories. I dream that your unique piece sees what kind of experiences created you and that it accompanies you for the wild ride that is life. To “Live Wild With Love” will mean something completely different to you than it does to me and I love that. We’re all one-of-a-kind creatures and that’s the kind of thing that is celebrated here at Live Wild With Love.

Now that you’ve learned a little bit about what has inspired me and what I want for this creative endeavor, I hope you enjoy taking a look-see around my shop for what might be that piece that gives you that HELL YEAH feeling! Just do me one favor…

Always remember, Live Wild With Love
