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 San Marcos, California.
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 our minimal lifestyle blog. Don’t forget to stay in touch and leave me a comment or send me an email at [email protected], no matter what it is, I want to hear from you!
