About Asleep to Dream

“Change your perception and the world will change with it.”

I am, first and foremost, a mama of two beautiful boys “Monkey” and “E” and wife to Josh, who is a dry-humored, humble, uber supportive, German-speaking, guitar-playing, care-taking, whole-hearted family man. These people are my world and I am over-the-moon in love with them.

Second to my family life (immediate, extended, and friends) are my event planning, memory-making, love-shaking hobbies that I pinch myself to be able to call my work.

Throughout my travels, and inward explorations over my many years, I’ve learned pivotal lessons. One of which, was to make the most of every day life – always appreciating the beauty that surrounds me. It’s not just the BIG moments that deserve special attention…it’s the little things that are often overlooked and sometimes considered mundane that actually make up the best memories of our lives.

When I began seeing the beauty in the simple pleasures of life (even during the most difficult times), my life started to open up in ways that I never imagined possible.

I started this blog as that journey began for me and have kept it up as best as I can with kids and work and general busy-ness.

This is Asleep to Dream. Why we live. Why we love.
