Things we’re learning…

ViaNova means “new road,” or “new way.” As a couple, Aaron and I have owned this URL for at least 15 years. Even when we haven’t used it for a web presence, we have used it for our email addresses.

Over time, the meaning of ViaNova has evolved. ViaNova has signified new life, hope, and salvation. ViaNova has described our enthusiasm for new adventures, new lessons, new projects, friends, homes, etc.

Today, ViaNova provides me with space to share the new (and old) things I’m learning. Not everything I post here is my hard and fast “forever” opinion or understanding. In fact, my beliefs develop continually, driven by experience, relationships, research, etc. I plan to write out the thoughts that are changing me on any given day.

Every day, we have the opportunity to learn, grow, and change, for better or worse. Oftentimes, I find that my day-to-day discoveries get lost or forgotten. Alternatively, I’ll share them with a single friend, who will help me to grow in understanding.

Here at, I plan to invite a few more friends to join the conversation. I look forward to your comments and questions.
