Yes, I’m a first + middle name entity simply to honour my beautiful heritage as a Canadian-Guatemalan. I also happen to be a spontaneous (and shameless) idealist, explorer like Dora, dreamer and doer. I proudly wear the badge of first-time mama bear to my son, Orson Wilder. I like to describe myself as a perfectly imperfect mama, wife, and woman embracing my early thirties, while curating a lifestyle that pushes me to live abundantly. I'm constantly reminding myself to toss aside the facade of perfection and live unplugged, stripped down and in hot pursuit of getting back to the basics.
I love all & serve all (Jesus is my homeboy and Mother Teresa is my homegirl), but I'm not a big fan of organized religion, or anything overly organized like being neat, cleaning, grammar, gluten, and writing in capital letters I also know that each can serve a purpose from time to time. Oh, and I openly suck at punctuation and I live for run-on sentences. I was once told my writing is too colloquial, but here I am…still freaking writing. I have a much longer list of "likes" or "loves" in life and can't wait to share them with you post by post.
My professional past has been a mish-mash of start ups + social enterprises, fair-trade fashion, non-profits, NGO's, social services, donor relations, mental health & addictions counseling, and a whole lotta' writing (professionally and for funsies). I hold degrees in Int'l Devel & Sociology with a minor in Community Psych, happy to say that I have used all of them along the way.
You can currently find me sharing my time + resources with those seeking whole-life wellness and freedom (which includes freedom of time and financial freedom).
This blog serves as a peek into my everyday life as an ever-evolving mompreneur living by the wanderlust of life. Here you’ll find my parenting wins & fails, lifestyle posts + reviews, family memories, DIY's and exploring our local surroundings. I throw in the odd peek into my creative process and latest documenting outlets. #documentlife
I plan to share my personal adoption story, battle with PCOS, depression & anxiety, and other obstacles that I have to throat punch on the daily.
I hope our worlds can collide in a beautiful way. My primary goal is to educate you, uplift you, and challenge you (along with myself) to simply live well.
Thanks for reading! I love sharing my local musings, and everyday snapshots & highlights from the back of my mind and the front of my camera lens. Let's live well and do good together!
xo, Amie Mariana
