Hello. I’m Acacia. I’m 31, and 36 weeks pregnant with my first baby – a gorgeous little boy. Perfect time to start a new project…right? (Yeah, maybe I’m a little crazy). This time last month I finally finished my degree, and so it’s highly likely I’m creating this blog to cope with the thousands of words of writing I’m already missing. But also, I’m entering a new chapter in my life and I wanted to document it.
Officially, I’m a yoga teacher, a community support worker and a wife. I’m already mama to 5 dogs, 2 cats, 3 guinea pigs, 18 chooks, 1 rooster and a duck. But now, I’m on maternity leave to focus on being a human mama too (for the first time).
Other than having a million animals and soon being a mum, I love exploring who I am, my purpose, my passions and helping others. I love all things earthy – the environment, nature, animals and humans too. I live with my husband and our big furry, feathered family on an acreage just over an hour out of Sydney and I love spending my spare time with the animals, horse-riding, bush walking, beach walking, ocean swimming, eating with friends or laughing on the phone to my family.
What’s this blog all about? My journey through the earthy entrance into motherhood, spirituality, life, self-growth, and eco-friendly stuff as I learn to become a more sustainable minded human. Really, I love writing about anything that sets my soul on fire, so that’s what you’re going to get here! I also dabble in poetry, but I’m not sure I’m at the stage of vulnerability to put that out into the interwebs just yet.. let’s see!
I’d love to you stay – grab a cuppa and get comfy.
