I’m 30/f/maryland for those of you who remember chatrooms in the 90s. I decided to start a blog because I’m beginning to narrow in on some real passions in my life, and it feels like putting time and energy into organizing those passions into a cohesive “thing” is the right thing to do.

I work full time marketing for an outdoor adventure company while pursuing my interests in a healthy, sustainable life on the side. I’ve always been drawn to a healthy lifestyle, but I’d say my life really started to shift in that direction about 4 years ago when I realized that my body didn’t really feel that great, and the things society was selling me are full of artificial chemicals.

So, I started doing things like making my own toothpaste and deodorant. I washed my hair and skin with apple cider vinegar. I experimented with veganism and reduced my intake of sugar and processed foods. I kept up with spending time in nature, hiking, yoga and learned about meditation. I also started to shed possessions. I began researching about the tiny house movement, van dwellers, minimalists, zero-wasters, yogis, etc. It all looked so wonderful!

I incorporated more and more of this stuff into my routine, and it’s definitely made me a happier, healthier person. I’ll be sharing my journey along the way in hopes that it can make you a happier, healthier person as well.
