Welcome to New Age Nesting! I’m Gab.
I started dreaming up New Age Nesting two years ago, right before I got engaged to my husband. We had just moved in together and were beginning our life as one. I already knew who I was as a single woman and a professional, but had no idea what kind of wife, home-maker, or partner I would be. I still kinda don't.
For years, I lived alone in Brooklyn with a strong “work first, self second” attitude, maintained a meat-free household, and made sacrifices to produce minimal waste. It was a huge assumption to think someone else would be so eager to spend that somewhat extreme lifestyle with me.
This isn’t one of those blogs where I show off my perfect lifestyle, but one about my journey in discovering balance in my household and within myself.
Luckily, he is totally on board and even challenges me to find new ways to make our home more eco-friendly and support small businesses. However, as any married folk will tell you, I continue to discover every day how to live in harmony with my spouse while holding onto these personal values. So this isn’t one of those blogs where I show off my perfect lifestyle, but one about my journey in discovering balance in my household and within myself.
One way we have begun achieve balance is on our home is adopting a conscious lifestyle -- committing to an intention that will navigate us through making decisions that are good for our bodies, for the Earth, and for the people and creatures with which we share our planet. My goal of living consciously sets the guiding principles throughout my journey as a wife and blogger. I want to help build a digital community of other homemakers and decision-makers who are making strides to eat healthy, stay chemical and cruelty free, and support businesses that help make the world a better place.
