Dirty Kelly is a term of endearment for a young girl who liked to:
jump in the lake
eat s’mores
do handstands, &
spill on her shirt
I truly believe that when we’re not afraid to “get dirty” is when we feel our best somewhere…when we let ourselves be free to run, play, take risks, be spontaneous, laugh at ourselves, experiment, sing badly, & shine.  When we remember our pulse & our inherent right as humans to laugh, cry, pee our pants, & skin our knee.
To remember to give ourselves “permission to play”.
