About Tsh

Tsh is the founder of this blog and lives in Bend, Oregon with her husband and 3 kids. Her latest book is Notes From a Blue Bike, and believes a passport is one of the world's greatest textbooks.

If you haven’t noticed, we made a few changes around here! There’s still more to come, but I’m psyched about our new look. If you’re reading this via a reader or email, hop over and see our spruced up digs!

I’m most excited about our illustrated, hand-painted headers—none other from the incredibly talented Rebekka Seale. She has an Etsy shop where she sells some of her work; I adore her flower series. She also recently painted Megan Tietz’s new header. Such a beautiful, talented artist! Thank you, thank you, Rebekka.

  7. Hi Tsh,

    I love the new look too! Hand-painted is so in tune with Simple Mom and your mission. I love the new tag line, and that joyous picture of you. It’s all beautiful.

    Even if I don’t comment often, I’m here, enjoying every post.

    Take care,
