Welcome friends! My name is Abby, and this little website is my online home. I’m married to my best friend, mom to a sassy, sweet little girl, crossfit fanatic, and a canine lover.

So here’s the scoop about my site…

a guide to blogging about natural family living

After dipping my toes into the blogging world in a variety niches in 2015 and early 2016, I finally found a niche (okay… technically two) that I was passionate about: Natural Family Living & Blogging. Shortly thereafter, in the summer of 2016, I launched this site. I used my own name for the site because, well, I couldn’t decide on a different name, and using my own name seemed like the easiest answer!

Natural Family Living

My first passion, and the reason I started this blog, is learning and sharing about living life with my family as naturally as possible.  Articles range from natural health & beauty, to my CrossFit journey and workouts, to DIY recipes for natural cleaners, to healthy food recipes and meal plans… ALL of which can be identified as gluten-free, Whole30, and/or Paleo. All the recipes are family-friendly and approved by toddlers, of course!


The second focus of my blog is to share lessons learned along my blogging journey, which began back in 2015. I had no clue what I was doing when I started, had zero help, and was pretty much a “if I can google it, I can do it” success story.  One of the things that really helped me along the way was reading blogging tips on successful bloggers’ sites.  So now that I’ve got a few things significantly more figured out than I did 2 years ago, I wanted to start sharing my lessons learned with the new bloggers on the block.  So, fellow bloggers, this section of the site is just for you! Posts include social media hacks, blogging tips and tricks, WordPress troubleshooting, and I even wrote a step-by-step post about how to start a blog!

My Mom Life

I also have more personal section of the blog where I weave in the occasional post about parenting tips, mom lessons learned, activities for kids, best mom and kid outfits, products, and more. I add these in because a lot of my readers are moms, and I love to chat about mom life, share tips and tricks, and get great feedback!

Alright, that’s a wrap! I hope this site feels like a second home and provides helpful insights, suggestions, and more. I look forward to getting to know you and am so glad you stopped by ♥
