hello and welcome!

Hello! I am a wife, mother, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. After the birth of my first child, I left a career in Human Resources in order to fully immerse myself in motherhood. I love cycling, spending time outside with family, walking my dog, and eating my all time favorite food – cold cereal. Throughout my days at home, I find myself continually recording voice memos about motherhood on my phone. In the evenings after bedtime, I wind down by compiling the memos into inspirational writings about life, parenthood, struggle, and success that I hope will resonate with you. My blog, Bright Blue Stone, began shortly after I spent a summer working as a wilderness therapy backpacking guide, and I knew I wanted a place to record all that I had learned out in nature and in life.


I hope you find something here that brings you peace, comfort, relief, or even just a good laugh.


Love, Bright Blue Stone (that’s me, Ellie 🙂 )
