Greetings and thanks for visiting my blog! I’m Vanessa, a 30-something “Domestic Goddess”. I think I’m a pretty awesome person. I bet you’re pretty great too.

Vanessa - Individual, Wife, Mom, Friend

Vanessa – Individual, Wife, Mom, Friend

I find something gratifying in the fact that we are all connected as people and we all want to be loved. Connection to others is something that I crave deeply so I seek community in the many things I do: fitness, parenting, nutrition, and blogging (to name a few).

Dreaming in Earth TonesWoman Contemplating

So, what is this blog all about? Well, I’m not a fashionista who’s partial to earth tones if that’s what you were thinking.

This blog is all about:

  • Promoting growth in my kids, myself, and my garden;
  • Looking through rose-colored glasses;
  • Slowing down to enjoy nature, people, and life;
  • Running, hiking, and otherwise playing outside;
  • Aspiring to live well through health, gratitude, simplicity and authenticity.

I believe life is a precious gift and it’s the only life we get so we should experience and enjoy it fully. As I seek community and explore wellness, family life, food and more, I invite you to follow along on my journey. I am so glad you are here!

I am not a fashionista… but I am indeed partial to wearing earth tones.

  1. Those kids could not be any cuter! I like the way you list all of your roles under your picture. Once you’re a mom, it’s so easy to lose the “individual” part. Looks like you’re doing a great job maintaining a healthy sense of self!

    • Thanks for the comment! I would say that I am attempting to maintain a healthy sense of self but as you said, that can be very hard at times. I think being an individual is incredibly important because as long as we are alive that is the main relationship we have. So, first and foremost, we should be comfortable in our relationship with ourselves in order to maintain sanity – there’s probably other good reasons too but I’m in mommy brain fog 🙂
