Welcome to Wild Words by Kelly Hargie. This once started out as a space called ‘Every Treasure Blog’ where I wrote about mine and my family’s outdoor adventures here in beautiful Northern Ireland and beyond as well as some musings on parenthood and my solo adventures and challenges. With my kids rapidly growing up, I want to move in a slightly different direction with the work that I share on here; I am not 100% sure what that looks like just yet, but am certain it will continue to contain plenty of mountain pictures and nature writing.
My name is Kelly and I’m a 40-year old Mum to 3 boys and wife to Trevor for the past 18 years. I am passionate about sharing my love for the great outdoors in my writing here on the blog and I write regularly for other blogs and magazines on this topic too.
Alongside my writing, in 2019 I also created Wild Women Events – a community for women who want to get back to basics, explore more and make meaningful connections in their lives. I’ve written many times on my blog over the years about the importance of outdoor time in my life. For me personally, having suffered with postnatal depression following the births of each of my children, living with a chronic illness and having endured several injuries including a dislocated pelvis and severe nerve damage in my shoulder, it is my belief that nature, and particularly walking, have been instrumental in my healing and recovery and is a major self-supportive tool that is my first port of call when the going gets tough!
I created Wild Women Events after a long time wondering how to share my journey and story with others as well as the many benefits I have discovered in becoming more connected to nature. It is my passion to see women grow in freedom, joy, self-confidence, creativity and abundance through spending time in the outdoors; exploring, getting back to basics and having fun together. My heart’s desire is to see a strong community of women develop that can support each other through the highs and lows of life. Wild Women Events are organised hikes and creative get-togethers that aim to inspire and connect women. They are welcoming and non-judgemental. They present an opportunity to roam, laugh and be wild and free. To leave feeling nourished, refreshed and supported – like the sound of this? Do get in touch to find out more or why not join the Facebook Group called ‘ Wild Women Events’ to keep up with all the latest news.
