Hi, I’m Jen a.k.a. Lita, a vegan, eco-friendly graphic designer living in beautiful Northern California.
Yes, we’re still “primarily” vegan in this household….but in all honesty, lately, I’m trying to get away from all labels- not just for myself but for all. Not that there’s anything at all wrong with declaring something. I just feel that in a lot of ways people can limit themselves and each other by letting a word define them. And if there’s something I don’t want to happen in life it’s definitely being limited. I am, after all, an ever-changing and evolving person – well, at least I hope I am.
I started this blog to share my journey through life being primarily vegan. I like to share vegan products I have tried and love in the hopes of getting others to try them and take a simple step in the direction of choosing to eat healthier. (I also hope others will realize that foods that are vegan aren’t necessarily icky or bad tasting and, in fact, can be quite delicious.)
I also try to be as eco-friendly as I can be and share easy tips I’ve found to help green my life and my household.
Yes, that is how this blog started, but, oh my, has it evolved. I’m still sharing vegan products, recipes, and places and still living as eco-friendly a life as I can, but I also share photographs, travel, gardening, family life, books, movies and well, anything that moves me and motivates me to post. So, I guess this blog has evolved into a LIFESTYLE blog and I’m super happy about that.
So, you may be asking – Why Lita?
Lita is what my handsome Grandson’s call me. When they came along, I simply felt too young to be called “Grandma”. A friend called suggested Abuellita (little Grandma in Spanish), I condensed it to “Lita” and the name stuck!
I’ve never been prouder to be called anything else.
I’ve been married for over 19 years to a wonderful man 20 years my senior – we’ll call him Pops. His real name is Jimi – and I’ve given him his own page now so you can read about the amazing person he is and his 36 years as an elementary school teacher.
His wisdom and love keep me grounded – I couldn’t have married a more perfect man for me.
Here are the other members of my crew including my two wonderful grown-up daughters (Libby & Mimi), my two ridiculously cute grandsons (Hunter & Westly), and my stubborn and silly French Bulldog named Bubba:
Welcome to my journey and thanks for stopping by.
