I’m SO glad you’re here!

In a world filled with bullshit and people always trying to sell to you…I want to provide a safe space away from all that NOISE!

I truly believe — when people KNOW BETTER and FEEL BETTER — they DO BETTER.

LOOK – I DO NOT WANT YOU HERE, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE HERE. I’m exhausted at the thought of all the things I’m supposed to do to have a successful blog, the ways bloggers are taught to entice you or sell to you. I miss the days when we didn’t have “Influencers” and perfectly curated material for “followers” (I hate that word btw – like we’re just mindless sheep).

Here’s the deal – it feeds my soul to help people – period.



Let me tell you a bit about how I got here…

I did all the things I was “supposed” to do. I graduated high school, then college, I met a guy, we had a bad-ass little boy, we got married, we built a home, we filled it with pretty things and we went to work EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And one day we looked at each other and said, “Is this it?” We weren’t unhappy, our marriage wasn’t in trouble, everything was as it “should be”, but we were not even close to fulfilled.

Since then, we’ve shifted gears about 100 times and had two more little ones – as my mama says, we are “farts in the wind”. But I like to think we just abso-fucking-lutely refuse to be content with life “as it should be”. We continue to gather education and life experiences as we go.

The ultimate goal here, is for me to be able to express my raw feelings, connect with other souls and share some lessons I’ve learned along the way.

I hope you will join me and that you’ll be able to relate to some of the stories I tell – after all, life is far better when we don’t feel so alone.

And although I think these are the things that have had the LEAST impact on my knowledge and ability to help people –here are just a few of my “credentials”:

  • Bachelor’s Degree from Ohio University (Go Bobcats!)


    • Formerly certified (because I don’t want to pay dues anymore) as a personal trainer, with a specialization in women’s fitness and youth exercise

  • IIN-certified Health Coach

    • Studied over 100 different dietary theories and learned from the world’s top nutrition experts

Long-term goals for our little family are to own a self-sustaining farm in South Carolina where we can continue to unschool/homeschool our kiddos (more posts on that coming soon) -- and when my babes are bigger and need me a bit less – I want to get involved in birth work, but for now –

HERE, I AM. My name is andrea.

These funds help keep this site up and running and hopefully someday will also help me keep food on the table.

I like to keep donations anonymous so that it has no impact on advice and help I provide…money complicates shit.
