Thanks for joining me!

No road is long with good company. — Kapton & Sons

Hi, I’m Abigail Kiana (or perhaps Abby to those childhood friends who know me best). I’m a mother of two beautiful cat children, hiker, minimalist, reader, artist, gardener, and lover of life and adventure. A farm girl from birth, but a mountain girl at heart. My life thus far has truly been a beautiful chaos: I seem to always find myself changing and evolving. Thankfully, I’ve been able to surround myself with people that nurture and inspire me every day.

I was born in New Bern, NC, but grew up on a farm in the tiny town of Aurora (which I consider to be my hometown). Since then I’ve moved once, leaving me right on the East Coast. While pursuing nursing, I am making plans to move to the mountains of NC and calling them home. I’m excited to take you guys on that journey! #AshevillehereIcome

I travel as often as is possible and have met some amazing people along the way. (Shoutout to Kimberly, my fairy Godmother, as always. 😉 ) During my little adventures, I have seen firsthand how beautiful a healthy / sustainable lifestyle can be. I make ALL my own products (except deodorant. . . we’re working on that one) and am a relatively new horticulturalist. I will be sharing any tips, tricks, and recipes I find useful in these areas! With this being said, no one has it all figured out (I certainly don’t!), but hopefully we can figure out a few things together.

I’ll be sharing / checking in weekly, so if that’s something you’re interested in subscribe to be the first to know when posts are up! Thank you for being here, I look forward to hanging out together. Feel free to drop a comment or two, this blog is a place to connect and inspire one another.

With love,


P. S. Here are some photos to show you bits of the journey thus far!

Love people and use things, because the opposite never works.
