First, thank you for visiting my blog and wanting to get to know me a little better. 🙂
I am an Atlanta-based blogger, author, business owner, “Chiro-wife”, & mother of 2 amazing little girls. I started blogging back in 2009 with a pretty popular local money saving/frugal blog. I found myself as the go-to person for money-saving and money-making tips for moms and I released my first 2 e-books with the goal of helping other moms find ways to enjoy life one a budget. Then, in 2012, I started Love, Peace, & Tiny Feet, which was personal outlet to find ways to truly find peace and balance in all of the ideals, the ordeals and the real deal of life and parenthood. All of my journeys – from my adventures in parenting, to my attempts at leading a natural and green lifestyle, to my opinions and understanding of my responsibilities and place in this world – are chronicled here.
I’ve been described as an earthy, holistic, hippie-ish mom, who enjoys life to the fullest and always strives to find the humor and the light in darkness. I see the world in black, white, and purple. Meaning, I have a strong sense of what I believe in and pass on to my family, but I find it equally as important to find love and peace for people who do not think or operate like me.
I’m also a first generation American, as my family hails from Liberia and Lebanon. On any given day, I find myself both embracing and rebelling against the traditions and values I was raised with. We came to America to avoid the Civil War and although we’ve been here ever since, my culture is still a very big part of me…among other really critical experiences that both negatively and positively affect who I am today.

The birth of my oldest daughter (my first set of tiny feet) became my revelation in so many ways. Throughout the years, I’ve seen so much of my former self in her and each day – good and bad. And as I heal her of some of those burdens, I am healing myself as well. Together, we find love and peace in imperfection…
The birth of my youngest daughter was my rebirth. When I started this blog, I chronicled the emotional journey brought about by what I called “the introduction of baby #2” This until we both fought for our lives to bring her into this world and her strength became mine. The ideals, the ordeals, the real deal…
So now that I’ve given you the mushy stuff… My goal is to take it all one day at a time as I continue on my never ending quest for love and peace in my home, my mind, and maybe someday, the world. I’ve learned that the path to finding your ultimate place in the world is not always a straight shot and my only hope is to be an honest, non- judgmental voice and platform for those still finding their way, providing practical resources to assist others through the journey as well.
