Hi there! I’m Kali, and I’m a writer, photographer and cook. Welcome to Bird is the Word, a collection of all the things I like best in this world. My family. The outdoors. Good food. Meaningful words. And beautiful photographs. In this space, I document my simple life on a berry farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley where I live with my husband, our son and a chocolate lab named Cash. I love beautiful food, quiet mornings and wading through one of Oregon’s many rivers, casting my favorite fly rod. Thanks for being here!
