About me

Occupation Making it up as I go.
Location San Juan del Obispo, Sacatepéquez, Guatemala
Introduction Everyday I wake up excited and happy anticipating the new day! I live in the Western Highlands of Guatemala with my dog, Mike, my boyfriend, Zach, & his dog, Marcel (and our darling guinea pig family). The cultural surroundings here have captivated me hook, line & sinker....I float around as if in a dream: absorbing it all. Being an American and all too familiar with Gringo ways, I am beyond fascinated by the simply natural ways of the Maya lifestyle and blessed to no end to be living this way myself; walking everywhere, eating local & fresh, and treasuring every moment.

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else. ~Emily Dickinson
