Hi. I’m Bethany.
I’m an East Coast transplant moved to the Rocky Mountains. I have an amazing husband and two kids, who are now teenagers – so wish me luck. It’s not unusual in my house to hear a serious discussion over dinner about whether a shrinking ray also effects density. You know, the important questions.
I love the woods behind my house but you probably will find me communing with the trees instead of on a 5 hour power hike.
I’m insatiably curious and am led by my desire to learn new things. It means my resume reads like I’m five different people, but I prefer the term “Renaissance” to “flakey.” The highlights from my twenties ’til now are – Economics, law, graphic design, landscape painting, life coaching and writing. Believe it or not, I’ve gained awesome skills from each.
My writing now is sprinkled with the knowledge and colors of all of these excursions. Learning and creating drive me. I geek out on research and then forge ahead by collecting and assembling words.
Some tidbits about me:
I’m a romantic. I know I should try to be more sophisticated, but you’ll find me crying over soap commercials. I just can’t help it.
I want all of the gadgets on Indiegogo. New inventions are awesome.
If reading were an Olympic sport, I’d be a top contender. I’m often happiest curled up on my couch in my pjs, reading a book. Don’t even ask how thick my glasses are.
I love to eat and dine at amazing restaurants, but I hate cooking. I’ve tried every way of outsourcing the job, while still feeding my family healthy (mostly) food. If you want some tips, just ask!
I love fashion and clothes and I go back and forth between my cashmere East Coast preppy heritage and Boho outdoorsy casual of my adopted Colorado. Or just a tee and jeans if nothin’ is going on.
I’m a tech and productivity freak. Always on the quest for the thing that makes me sit up in my chair and peer avidly into the screen.
I love to travel with my family and usually fit in one great trip a year, but I’m much happier in a fancy hotel room than a tent in the middle nowhere. Just the way I’m made, I guess.
I believe in deep conversations instead of cocktail party chatter. I believe that hardship sucks, but it can often put you on the right path to joy. I believe each of us has unrivaled stories and gifts. I believe that learning and exploring are key steps to a full life.
