Hi! I’m Mindy! The Mom of the Swiss Family Carlson!
I started this blog years ago as a forum to talk about the joy of creating and designing quilts and handbags and putting together costumes for various Halloweens and school plays. After a few years of focusing only on sewing I started branching out and talking more about life, family, and philosophy.
Then last year my husband’s job requested he take an assignment overseas so we moved to Switzerland and I started blogging about the adventures of the Swiss Family Carlson.
I have my Master’s of Science in Organization Development from American University. I serve as a consultant to organizations in various capacities and have the privilege of acting as a life coach to people who are in a life transition.
I also served as the Administrative Head of School for Rock Creek Montessori School for 3 years before we moved to Switzerland. I am intensely interested in education and parenting, so quite a few of my articles focus on how organization development techniques and Montessori methods to inform how I parent.
I hope you enjoy it and your comments are always welcome.
