We were like most living in a city (working hard, cleaning our small apartment we could barely afford, drinking on Friday nights) but we realized we needed a change! Within a year, we went from living in Toronto, Canada, to packing everything we own into suitcases and moving to Costa Rica – our version of paradise – to give birth to our daughter Niya. Expect videos with lots of sunshine, cute babies, relationship talk, pregnancy/parenting advice, simple living, an abundance of fresh fruit and vegan living, adventure, and a lot of fun! We are living our dream life, and we want to inspire you to live out your story however you imagine! If we can do it, we know you can too!

We post videos EVERY MONDAY, THURSDAY, AND SATURDAY at 2 pm Eastern Standard Time! We hope that you will subscribe to keep up to date as we continue on our crazy journey!
