About Me


First of all thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoy what you read. My name is Vanessa and 13933163_10153760208497113_803691261_n.jpgI’m an East Coast mom with an addiction to finding ways (and things) to simplify my life. Sometimes my need to simplify runs away with me, but I remain on my journey to find balance.

I’m passionate about learning new things, being a mom, growing food, and I always enjoy a good DIY project. Living a healthy lifestyle is important to me as well, so weights and vegetarian fare have become staples. I’m also returning to work soon so my newest series ‘Quick and Freezable’ is going to serve me well. Take a look to see if anything works for your family.

I’ve gone through a lot of changes since becoming a mom and my values, goals, and views of the world around me have shifted significantly. My interests now lean more towards sustainable living, homesteading, and raising ‘free range’ children. I’m by no means perfect. Some days are full of laughter and some are full of more choice words and apologies for being ‘grumpy mommy’. This blog is a way for me to keep track of my experiences and the things I learn along the way – if I help others simplify their crunchy lives too, bonus! Now to remember to write it all down instead of just narrating in my head.
