I'm a twenty-something Baltimore girl living with her husband and rescue dogs outside of the city. We love Baltimore because of the people, the beauty and its quirks. We spend a lot of time in the city, but love retreating home to the suburbs where things are a little more peaceful.
I spend my days teaching 2nd graders how to read, write, tie their shoes and be good people. When I get home, I'm a full-time dog mom to Lucy and Bailey, my two quirky mutts. I spend a lot of watching reruns of The Office, listening to Frank Sinatra and Sam Cooke, scouring the racks of a thrift store, and going for sunset walks with my bearded man.
My journey to a compassionate life started in 2014 when I went vegetarian and switched my makeup to cruelty-free. In 2015, I went vegan and by 2016, I was working on removing all animal products from my life, as well as trying to not support organizations or companies that support animal exploitation.
I knew going vegan did wonders for the environment and saved countless, precious animal lives but I didn't realize how my waste and plastic consumption was literally killing animals and our planet. Since then, I have been on a journey towards a low-waste, eco-friendly lifestyle. I still have so much to learn and there are so many people further on this journey than I am but that's the beauty- this lifestyle isn't about other people, it's about what YOU can contribute to this beautiful planet, its beautiful animals and its amazing people.
Sounds cheesy, but I truly believe that even one step towards this lifestyle can change the world. I hope you'll join me!
