I care deeply about animals, the environment, and social justice issues. I follow a vegan diet, garden, bike, and am generally mindful of how my actions will impact others.
I live simply in a 540 sq ft home. I'm a huge fan of the tiny house movement. I'm not off grid but an energy auditor reported that I use so little energy I'm basically off-grid (that news made my day!).
tiny home= freedom : )
