I live on the beach in Florida and spend as much time outdoors as humanly possible. I love my family, reading (especially history), gardening, cooking, hiking, sailing, everything equestrian, astronomy, and traveling to exciting new places. I write a lot about nature and conservation, culture, books, classical homeschooling, and anything that tickles my curiosity. Big fan of Aristotle and his ideas about human flourishing - i.e. excellence starts with habits of action.
