About Me

*** Only hosting VEGETARIAN or vegan people. Sorry but I had some bad experiences with meat-eaters.

From a chaos-lover to a peace-seeker :)
Trying to live a simple life. Trying to evolve... raise, rise, teach, learn, love...

I have an adorable toddler. We are vegetarian. We live in a beautiful place.
Love to sing, breath clean air, wander, travel...


"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
Lao Tzu
