About Dixie

I’m so happy that you have found me in my corner of the blog world! I know we would have a fantastic conversation about life, motherhood, balance, faith and dreams if we were to meet in person! Let’s make our time here the next best thing!

I’m a southern girl at heart raised in rural Georgia, since college I’ve lived in several fun places across the world. I’m married to an amazing man (for 12 years now) our home is bilingual and bicultural, he’s from Ecuador and you should hear my Spanish with a southern twang! We are blessed with vivacious identical twin boys (now 5 years old who also happen to have asperger syndrome)….and our house is usually very  loud : ) throw a puppy  in the mix and that makes us happy and joyful in our corner of the world, now home is Florida.

I’ve always been a teacher; as a little girl playing school always taking on the teacher role, to my international training and development career and now in my speaking and coaching. I’m just now learning that God has called me to write as well, (my wonderful Mom is thinking right about now, please Dixie use the right “there and their” and put your commas in the right places) I can’t guarantee any of that, but I will try!  I can guarantee genuine authenticity!
