Introductions:

If you know me personally you know I’m a bit all over the place. I’m a part time flower child, full time hot mess.

To start, I have been married since 2016, and as of 2018 I am a mama to the most wonderful baby boy. I fall somewhere in between modern and holistic when it comes to my parenting child, but I’m a mostly crunchy mom.

I practice tarot and align my chakras, smudge my apartment every now and then, and had an all natural birth. I also vaccinate my child, I fully believe in science, eat processed foods, and love trap music. You can decide what to call me for yourself.

I’m a moon mom to a little meteor, and I’m trying to balance being a mother and being a person without losing myself somewhere between the two. 

I’m a feminist. I think it’s important to speak your mind often, and loudly. I think debates and discussion are important.

I recently decided to quit my job as an aide in special education to become a full time mom until I graduate.

I believe that connecting with new and exciting people is crucial to personal growth, and starting in early 2019 I began to plant and host a variety of networking events.

I started being more active on social media when I found out I was pregnant. With a baby coming, I was leaving the overwhelmingly difficult parts of my life behind me and needed a sense of community. I wanted to be a mom that focused on her baby but didn’t lose herself while doing it, and I was already feeling a little lost. I wanted to document this new part of my life that I knew would be full of moments I would never want to forget, and so LifeandLana.com was born.

I want to be able to share my own beliefs and tips, and maybe introduce others to new things the same way many bloggers have done for me. Reading about others’ experiences as they go through life can motivate you when you’re experiencing something similar, especially when you’re about to start something as scary as trying to raise a perfect little human being.

I am an incredibly liberal person and I’m comfortable disclosing deep and personal pieces of my life. I tend to speak my mind, almost to a fault, and while this is endearing to some it can be a deal breaker for others.

While I would like to label this as a lifestyle blog, I want to warn you it’ll be a little all over the place – which only makes it more authentic if you know me at all.

Use the menu above to navigate through the variety of topics I will touch on. I hope you continue to follow my thoughts through all the funky little topics and places they’ll take you.
