By the time you read this, a new member of The Woodsy family may have already arrived. With one-half of our two-person team expecting a baby early this summer, and with the other half of our team knee-deep in ambitious projects and her own family, we’ve decided to take a cue from the academic world… Read More Announcement: Summer Vacay!
Both Julia and I met Cara just over a year ago at a women’s writing event here in Spokane. Thanks to the wonders of social media, we’ve been able to follow along as she’s (deservedly) appeared in some prestigious publications. She kindly agreed to turn the tables and let me interview her about her self-designed freelance… Read More Cara Strickland: Writer, Storyteller, Student
Earlier this year, Julia and I reached out to members of our online writing community and asked if they’d be willing to share with us their experience of writing books. While not everyone writes a book in their lifetime, most of us do tackle some sort of momentous project, or find ourselves on a long-term… Read More 4 Questions: 3 Women On Long-Term Motivation, Books, And Feeling “Done”
Elise and I originally met when we were both participating in The Moms, a panel on local morning show Good Day Spokane (hosted by Kjerstin Bell, who’s joined us before here on The Woodsy). While the panel was a great way to get to know other moms in the area, I was especially curious about a… Read More Elise Raimi: International Aid Consultant Turned Mom/Co-Director of ‘Listen To Your Mother Spokane’

We wanted to acknowledge Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, we wanted to recognize the six-month anniversary of launching this site, one of us has a kiddo with a birthday this month, and one of us has a… Read More Connecting to May’s Theme
Last September, I spent just over 24 hours on a houseboat for the first time in my life. As any whirlwind mini-vacation should be, it was relaxing, beautiful, and quick. And, I left with far too few pictures. However, I did manage to snap the shot above during sunset the one night we stayed on the… Read More Somewhere On Lake Roosevelt, Eastern Washington
Editor’s note: listening back over Karyna’s interview reminded me of some of my favorite podcasts. She’s calm and thoughtful and intentional when she speaks, and she’s just wise. There’s really no other word for it. Her small business, Flora Yogurt Company, is well known in the Spokane area, as is the Thursday Market that she manages… Read More Karyna Hamilton: Former Advocate, Current Business Owner, Yogurt Expert & Inspiration
Note: In the spirit of this month’s theme of “unexpected,” Julia and I (the two founders of this very website you’re reading), hopped on a chat to discuss what the concept means to us. Julia: Let’s go for it. Dena: Okay, for context, we had another theme ready to go, and I changed it last minute… Read More Let’s Talk About The Unexpected, Shall We?
