Welcome! I am so glad you stopped by.

My name is Alison, but anyone who knows me well calls me Ali. If you’ve read more than a couple of my blog posts, I’d say you know me pretty well. Let’s just go from there.

Professionally, I am a writer and speaker, editor and educator. However, I mostly think of myself as a wife, mother, daughter and friend. Leonid Tolstoy wrote, “Everything I understand, I understand because I love” and I have to agree.

This blog is called #Signs of Love, because if we look, we can see them everywhere.

Of course, there are the obvious ones: the hugs, and  kisses, affirmation and affection, and even the loyalty, commitment and presence of family and friends, but even if those fade away, Love remains. It is our DNA, the reason we were created and the way we have survived. It is the air we breathe and the ground we walk on.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey and begin to see the # Signs of Love present in the joy and sadness, quiet and chaos, wisdom and foolishness that is our lives.
