Purpose

pp
I launched this blog in May 2017 as an inspiration for mindful living. With the intention of sharing the unique beauty of the Western States, while connecting likeminded souls from around the world. I currently live in Las Vegas (NV.)

This was part of the big organic garden I had 2018. 

I’m a country girl at heart, and the city is a temporary home. I’m making the most out of it, while I’m working towards my goal of a small homestead. I believe that you are what you eat; mind, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food. I’ve spent a few years in California learning about organic gardening. My ultimate dream is to be as self sufficient as possible.

I believe that life is about choosing happiness. To actively be in charge of how you react to any given situation. I have a BA in Early Childhood Education. I have a background as a kindergarten teacher, preschool teacher, nanny, 4H leader, and horseback riding instructor. I love books, and read a lot, but believe in learning by doing. Making learning fun for my young daughter is a high priority in my life. I choose to homeschool her via a hands-on, project based curriculum, that suits her learning style, and interests.

My German Shepherd Gretchen is my best friend, and goes with me everywhere I go. Thanks to my grandma, I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. You can find prints of my favorite photos in my online gallery. (Safely purchase prints with any credit card, via Fine Art America. World wide shipping.) My gypsy soul have taken me to 48 US States, and I’ve explored most countries in Europe. I see all the western states as my home, and love taking road trips exploring amazing nature, and ghost towns.  In the process of giving me wonderful memories, traveling, have definitely taught me to be more humble.

My mission as a photographer and blogger, is to share zen strategies; and encourage a healthy lifestyle, with a close connection to nature and animals, using my photos and stories as the medium for inspiration.

I place the highest value on time with my loved ones, and a close connection to nature, and animals. One of my zen strategies includes visiting National Parks, and State Parks often. I love  interacting with photographers, and likeminded bloggers, around the world. You can expect to find at least two inspiring posts on the blog every week; The Weekend Coffee Share (a link-up party that rounds-up what’s happening right now, you are invited to participate and link to your blog,) and a minimum of one more post, usually dedicated to a recent adventure, or a gardening project. Sharing blog posts, and giving feedback is appreciated, and encouraged!

Love,

Maria

        • Awe good, that makes me feel better. I always go to the “about page” of a new blog first. I find them most interesting. Then I discovered today that I missed several comments on my own about page… that’s not good. I’m going to work hard on keeping better track on comments. Interacting with other bloggers is something I enjoy very much.

    • Thank you Brad! Life changes 🙂 I moved so that my daughter would be able to get to know her biological father. I never could imagine myself living in a city, and definitely not Las Vegas. The close proximity to amazing nature is my savior. Thank you for dropping by. I hope you’re having an amazing weekend.

      • Maria, there’s an enormous amount to like about the L.V. area. Even for us daytrippers, the Red Rocks never get old, but I’d love to have the opportunity to explore more widely into the desert, the Great Basin, etc. Enjoy!

          • I’ve only seen Valley of Fire once, and just as a drive-through. Haven’t gotten out to hike, nor have we seen it in different lighting. It would be beautiful in early morning or late afternoon light. So long as you’re good for the heat, you have an enormous amount to explore.
