Hi. I’m Ana.

Apologies for the awkward start. I’m quite unsure about what to write. All I really know is how badly I want to.

I have been wanting to start a blog for a VERY long time now. Figuring out exactly what to focus on has been the most difficult part. I’m here now because I finally thought: Hey! Who freaking cares. Just start writing, damnit!

So, here I am. Excited to be here. I’m 29 years old and live in Southern California. I grew up as an only child of Portuguese immigrants. I’m extremely passionate about travel, nature, language, mindfulness, food, people… and the list could truly go on forever (see why I experienced such difficulties landing on a topic?)

I’m beyond grateful that you’re here.
