Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the world.
My name is Luci, and I am equal parts SO EXCITED and INCREDIBLY NERVOUS to write this post and launch this blog. Excited, because I get to take my job (writing) and turn it into something I'm truly passionate about: writing about health, wellness, healing, and life. I get to share my journey and my world with you: my dogs, my family, my mountaintops, and my valleys. Nervous, because there's always that little voice in the back of my head going, "Nobody's gonna read this, Luc. And who are you to think anyone will?"
But you know what? That voice can stuff it.
Let me start by saying that I'm not a medical professional, a certified nutritionist or yoga instructor, or a health coach. I'm just a girl who has been living with chronic illness for most of my life, and, over two years ago, began to find out why. But after two years of dietary and lifestyle changes, vitamins, herbal supplements, and more blood work than I ever wanted to do (fun fact: I have a terrible fear of needles), I'm not quite on the journey to healing yet. I'm still trying to figure out the what: what's at the root of the hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism, and a whole list food intolerances.
But I know my why: I know how much better I feel, even though I know I can still feel better. I know the empowerment that comes with taking charge of your health, of knowing what you're putting into your body, and seeing exactly how it affects you, physically, mentally, and emotionally. And I want to share as much of that as I possibly can, in the hopes that it inspires someone else to feel the same way.
There's not a quick answer or a cure-all, and there's certainly not a miracle drug to fix all your ailments and turn you into a rockstar-yogi-superhuman. You're not going to find any get-fit-quick tricks here, and I'm not ever going to sell you on anything. I'm just going to be honest, share my journey, and learn as much from you as you (hopefully!) learn from me.
And, just like any relationship, that all starts with hello! So, hi!
A few things about me: I'm an indie musician, in a band with my sister, a freelance writer, and a self-taught yogi with a passion for food, wellness, and travel. I met the love of my life, Nick, almost two years ago, and am constantly amazed by how much adventure we've packed into our life in that time. I'm a rescue-dog mom x 2 (Charlie, a miniature poodle, and Roxy, a Border Collie/Aussie mix), and would have a whole pack of rescue dogs. I love the mountains; I live half the week in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia, and I would move to Colorado in the blink of an eye (serious goals there).
I live for cool weather, have a serious soup addiction, and would seriously consider living in an RV or a tiny house. At this point in my life, though, I live surrounded by all of the people I love most, out of a suitcase a little more often than I ever thought I would, and with a heart wide open to every new adventure, as long as I'm with the ones who mean the most to me.
I'm so excited to take on this new adventure, and look forward to healing, growing, and thriving with you!
Love and light,
