Hi! So, you want to know more about me and our minimal lifestyle blog?
In a nut shell… I’m a girl with bangs, a wife and a loving mother of two adorable furry children, Mr. Cody and sweet lil Miss Sasha. Oh, and we are all travelers! Currently, home is Cuenca, Ecuador.
In more words, I was born and raised in sunny Oceanside, CA. My whole life we lived 3 blocks from the beach, I spent every summer watching kids running down my street with boogie boards. Meanwhile, I dreamt about living in a small simple cottage in the middle of a forest where early spring stays year round and where deer, doe and fawns gather to eat and play. Yes, I am a dreamer, hopeless romantic and by all means constantly distracted.
Being constantly distracted, a trademark for me, makes it difficult to commit to one thing. For 6 years I’ve worked as a Dental Assistant/Insurance coordinator. (I know! Crazy.) I love my job and the team but my creative side was lacking attention. My wonderful husband encouraged me to pursue my creative dreams – I created a cozy home on a budget, a minimal capsule wardrobe that fit my lifestyle for under $200, and we managed to live a vegetarian to raw vegan diet. I got the inspiration to take on new challenges and do many DIY projects from my favorite bloggers. (Check them out, here.)
After a year of marriage we decided it was time to move. We needed a new chapter in our lives, an adventure! I started reading travel blogs and it was then that I realized – I can blog about anything I want. Anything.
During the fall/winter of 2014, we created Fawndly and Hart | A Minimal Life & Style Blog, this is where I can be limitlessly creative and share everything and anything that inspires me. Mostly, I will share our travel adventures, how and why we live a minimalist lifestyle, and how to look chic while living with a capsule wardrobe.
Why Fawndly and Hart?
Remember my forest daydreams? I love the forest and all the wild flowers and animals that come with it. (Well, except for the bugs.) I especially love deer and fawn, they are awwdorable. Did you know a hart is a type of deer? Not just any deer, the most majestic of them all. Even though I am the main writer here at F&H, my hart (or hubs) is a big part of me being able to have a space to share our lifestyle with you. That said, “Fawndly and Hart” captures perfectly who we are as a couple and it encapsulates my dreams.
Thanks for stopping by to learn a bit more about me and for looking around. Don’t forget to stay in touch with me on Instagram, leave me a comment or send me an email at [email protected], no matter what it is, I want to hear from you
Fawn (or Fawndly)
