Maria is the name my mother gave me. I’m a teacher, a mom, and a minimalist. I love photography and growing my own food. The only thing that isn’t minimal at my place is my container garden and the love that is all around. I am SagittariusViking.
A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes.
The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. By the end of 2019 I returned to Sweden the country of my birth, after spending eight years in the US, and prior to that traveling all over Europe. I am at home now. I’m a single mom in my early 40’s, content, and happy. I have a work that I love. My goal of having a small homestead is within reach.
I started this blog to encourage a healthy lifestyle, with a close connection to nature and animals, using my photos and stories as the medium for inspiration. During busy times you might only find one post every week, but often several.
