My name is Silje Elin Erlandsen Howes. A Norwegian, lover of mountains and the sea, autumnal colours and long dark nights with a lit fireplace and lots of candles. In my 20s I fell in love with an Englishman, and we now live in Surrey, UK. I am a mother of three incredible, fun and talented teenagers.

Life with all its challenges has taught me to value family, friends, fun and adventures, oh and a good board game. I am passionate about purpose and helping people find theirs. And I guess I could mention that I am an amputee..
