“…the quiet glory of merely making things, and then sharing those things with an open heart and no expectations…”

-Elizabeth Gilbert, from her book Big Magic

Hi there, and welcome!

a quiet glory seeks to celebrate motherhood, plant-based food, simple living, and the power of self growth.  Monthly topics include my minimalist wardrobe, reflection and inspiration, cultivating a homemade life, a cookbook of the month, and stories from my life.

Originally from the Midwest, I’ve been living in Europe for the past 5 1/2 years with my French husband Adam and our son, Benoit, who was born in October 2015.  Currently based in Berlin, Germany, I am a stay-at-home-mom who one day dreams of having my own business, alongside homeschooling my kids.  I am passionate about living consciously: the food I eat, the clothes I wear, the materials and packaging I buy-just a few choices that have the ability to make a positive effect on those around us and on the environment.

I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts and stories.  I’d love to hear from you regarding the blog or collaborations.  Drop me a line at aquietglory@gmail.com

Alles liebe xx
