      I like that word tenacity. It seems gritty.

      I have met so many beautiful and tenacious women on my travels. One of these women is my dear friend,

      Amy Q . She inspires me. She dreams out loud. She falls and gets back up again.

      She is a “TRUE TENACIOUS”.

      Amy is a mom to five amazing little dreamers and wife of the coolest hippy roofer in the universe. She has learned what it means to “run the race set before us”. She is obstinate. She has strength of purpose. She is gritty.

      Her tenacity is reflected in the life of her family and her creative photography. They also reflect a beauty in this world that is so often overlooked because of our busy lives. Here is a link to an article she penned awhile back 



      Reflecting beauty.

      I guess maybe that’s what dreaming out loud can also look like.
