Hi friend! Allow me to introduce myself:

A vegan Yooper, and Interior Design student with a love for sustainability and living intentionally. I’m so happy you found my spot!

Couple things to know about me:

  • I drink coffee until it’s time for a cocktail and swing music
  • Wife to an amazing husband, Doug
  • Mom to 3 dogs and 2 cats (aunt to 3 furbabes, and sister to 2)
  • I believe all animals have rights and will always fight for them
  • I’m a yogi wannabe
  • I’m an introvert
  • I very easily get lost in almost any song

I’m blessed to say I grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and, still cannot believe her power and beauty. I’ve never known life without immediate access to the beach as my Great Grandfather purchased land right on the shore and it’s been in our family since.

Over the years, I’ve done many things but have always had a passion for helping and working with animals including Pet Grooming and working at our local no-kill shelter UPAWS.

My blogging journey started in 2015 when I came across some blogger stories on Pinterest and it’s been a wild ride since then. Most importantly, it started a journey of finding an outlet to share ways to fix the problems that keep me up at night: animal welfare and the health of our planet.

I’m passionate about finding ways to live more sustainably and with less consequence to Mother Earth and her fam, and I truly hope I’m able to inspire and help you to do the same!
