Episode Notes

Stephanie Lee grew up among the mountains and red rocks of Utah but now calls Southern Oregon home. She lives with her (adorably sexy) husband, Vince (who can build/fix/do anything he puts his mind to), teenage daughter Annabelle, dogs Elsie and Rumi, and three cats who really need to up their game in their mole hunting duties. Vince and Stephanie share four more grown children (one of whom she brought into the world) and she’s decided that being a grandma before the age of 40 is pretty much the best thing ever.

Her therapist is her garden and the backpacking trails where nature and Stephanie have pretty good conversations about all the things. She has pretty good homesteading skills and she admittedly fantasizes about living off the grid in a cozy cabin where there is snow in the winter and the summer finds her growing and canning her own food by the bushel (with a cute little coffee shop within walking distance, of course) and reading real paper books in the evening by firelight.

How Stephanie would describe herself:

I cry easily, even (and especially) when laughing and have amassed a plethora of other potentially useful skills that I have so far totally underutilized. These include, but are not limited to:

Playing the piano and guitar

Cooking over a fire

Canning and preserving food

Making new friends

Saving ab workouts on Pinterest

Using the very last drop of toothpaste out of the tube before throwing it away. (Waste not, want not!)

Things I would like to add to this list but have heretofore managed to under-excel in:

Running three miles without a lung collapsing

Being an overachiever (while simultaneously cultivating an Instagram feed of enviable “simple life” images, of course).

Earning “cool mom” status

Dancing in a way that does not look like a long armed troll trying to act casual when he just tripped over his shoelace.

Yodeling.

One thing is for sure: If you are excited about something, I will be SO excited with you and I will do everything I can to make sure you know how awesome you are. Because, if nothing else, I want you to feel really, really good about being all in with your unique and exquisite creative expression.
