live it to give it is all about love and connection. Being authentic. Living our lives and sharing it with others. Life is messy and so is this blog. Somedays my organized coach self shows up. Other days it's my vulnerable author. There's a mom that lives inside me alongside a wife, friend, creative muse, ponderer extraordinaire, and multitude of others.

I'm honored you're here and I hope you'll come back soon!!  Cheers! Kayce

Unplugging. Will you? Can you? Would you? I did.

Recently I decided to take a challenge and participate in the National Day of Unplugging and go off the grid for 24 hours. After the initial panic subsided when I realized it entailed turning off my iPhone in addition to the computer and iPad, I reconciled with my decision, sent my family a reminder I was unplugging, and waited for the sun to set.
