Howdy. My name is Robin Strong Elton.
I live in historic Landenberg PA in an 1800s farmhouse I like to call Elton’s Folly, an easy hike from the PA-DE-MD tricorner. I read too much and hoard quotes like a dragon’s treasure. I’m a writer for hire, a community manager, a content producer; a philosopher, a storyteller, a hobbyist photographer, a literary gangsta; a curator of all things clever and lovely.
I really, really like to talk.
I’m the Honey Badger Mom of three kids (Jacob, 18; Maverick, 15; Cassidy, 11) and two dogs—an elderly beagle mix and a Saint Bernard puppy. My husband Jeff can fix or build anything, and often does when I’m out of the house for the day.
Depending on my mood, I can be a mean green drama queen; a Hepburn fashionista (I’m Katherine AND Audrey); a getting-there CrossFitter/OCR runner, or just generally pretty badass.
I’m a real food advocate, a wilderness defender, a believer in a common sense healthy lifestyle firmly anchored by the power of play. I proudly support local and small biz and I vote with my dollar.
For my kids’ sake, and for everyone’s kids’ sakes, I’ve become the green mom, the “get outside” mom, the activist mom, the noisy mom. Yes, I’m trying to save the world, because I can’t imagine not trying. I maintain this blog to educate, motivate, inspire, and generally light a fire under the butts of those I reach to become their best selves.
Most of the photographs on this site are mine. All opinions definitely are.
