Krista Swan • Portland, Oregon

Welcome to my humble corner of the blogosphere! I write about my family and our adventures and travel and food, and about my ongoing fitness journey.

I love to cook, especially with the kids, but we have a hard time sticking to recipes. That must be because I have a problem with thinking rules don’t apply to me, but I’m working on that because I have to.

My little muses are 5 year old thoughtful nature girl Anna, and 4 year old flirty boy Eric. Their father is the love of my life, my husband of 10 years Brian. We call him The Daddy Man because he really is a superhero to us.

I’ve realized lately that I’m more competitive than I previously thought, and since turning 40 I’m wondering what I want to be when I grow up.

I believe in the power of good shoes and wine, and I’m inspired by nature, by unnecessary kindness, by women who make fitness a balanced part of their daily lives, by anyone who DOES SOMETHING instead of just thinking about it, and by Cupcakes and Cashmere and This is Glamorous.
