Bio: I am passionate about slowing down, being deliberate, and exploring a more simple life. I've lived the consumerist, busy lifestyle for far too long. I want to share and inspire with others that we all can live the life we were meant to live. I was laid off from my job this past summer of 2014. It was the best and worst day of my life. I realized that I have been chasing the consumerist rainbow and spending hours at day jobs that have sucked the life out of me. Now, I am getting rid of excess and learning to appreciate what I have and doing what I love to do: snuggling my baby girl, graphic design, and writing. I feel the stress melting away as the days go and while I make time to savor only the things that truly matter.
