Welcome to Five Stars and A Heart. My lifestyle blog, where I write about most anything on my mind or going on in my life, from homeschooling my two youngest kids, to figure skating, to raising teen boys and young adult children living in my home all the way to recipes. I’m a little bit crunchy, a lot a bit crazy, wild and free in my heart, on the go constantly but stuck in my house more days than I care to admit. If I sound like you and you sound like me then we should be friends.
What does Five Stars and A Heart stand for? Each of my kids, of course! A star for each of my boys and a heart for my daughter!
Kaden- Born with autism. He is a wealth of information, stays up to date on current events, loves collecting vinyl, and stores food in his big toe.
Tristan- Introvert to the nth degree. Nicest person you’ll ever meet in your life and a perfectionist by far. He has huge dreams to produce music one day.
Sebastian- Born with a mouth of sass and quick wits that will *fingers crossed* hopefully work for him and not against him in life. Over achiever and a go getter.
Fallon- The kid that I always think is slacking off but brings home straight A report cards. Today I peeled him off of the Xbox to go to the pool. It was nice to see him.
Sadie- The girl I waited 12 years for. She lives up to every dream I had about having a daughter. Beautiful inside and out. How did I get so lucky to be her mama?
Hawk- God saved the best for last. And by best I mean the busiest, wildest, loudest, craziest, naughtiest, cutest, boy there ever was.
A bit more about me:
I was born and raised in Southern California. A childhood filled with dance lessons, gymnastics, and the Hawaiian culture led me to dance and choreograph professionally for much of my adult life. I have worked in entertainment for Disney and Warner Brothers, eventually leading me to open my own dance studio. An affection for sewing, and pattern mixing fabrics with various prints and wild colors led me to create my own upcycled childrens clothing line in 2010. I now work as a freelance independent crafter and seamstress who specializes in styling and pattern mixing for women, children and home decor. I manage numerous social media accounts while keeping busy with my own. I’m a huge Disney fan, operate well under pressure and have an intense desire to live my life to the fullest. I am driven by random acts of kindness, chaos and my best ideas come to me in the middle of the night. My bucket list includes jumping out of an airplane, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and white water river rafting. I dabble in photography, makeup and anything that gives me an outlet to create. I currently reside in Idaho with my husband and six children.
