well hello…

September 14, 2014

Hey sweet friends. I’ve missed you. Its been a good ten months *off the blogging grid. Most of the things I hoped to accomplish or re-set in my life – I came close enough that life feels really good right now. We have settled back in to our Utah life, and in April I officially became cancer free!!! Over the past ten months I have learned a lot, changed a lot, and especially grown in areas I never expected as a parent. I am returning to blogging refreshed, re-inspired, balanced, and with some core ideas on how to make this space a bit more me.

the art of… family

April 16, 2013

this past weekend, i took a whole lotta sidewalk chalk + all of my kids outside to our driveway. we spent all afternoon out there, and not only created some chalk masterpieces, but created some fun memories.

see jane’s blog roll

March 14, 2013

since i arrived home from Alt. summit in January i have been making my way through the business cards i collected from all the incredible people i met. since doing so, i decided 2013 would be a good year to add a blog roll to seejaneblog that includes many of my well-loved favorite bloggers {mostly friends} and some of the new virtual connections.  while i am post-surgery resting, working on a few other upcoming events and projects, and spring cleaning… this will give you time {months actually!} to peruse these blogs. also, i am currently updating my google reader {did you know google reader retires on July 1st?  any recommendations on what to do???}, please share your favorite blogs in the comment section below if they are not included on my list!

mingle@soel.

June 29, 2012

My head is still buzzing from mingling on tuesday evening…

the mingle scene.

Shelby and I, equipped with door prizes for the guests.

Color. I am so glad that everyone brought their shining beauty, and joined in the fun.

We had 2 official photographers working mingle this time, Justin Hackworth and Ashley Thalman. Go take a look at the photos here and here.  They did an outstanding job. Plus, they’re really cool people and fun to hang out with! (The images on this post were shot by them.)

I met so many wonderful people at mingle@soel!
