Hello! My name is Kara and Welcome to Bravely Blonde!
After a quick look around you likely noticed that here at Bravely Blonde we believe in living sustainably and intentionally. Yet, what is sustainability? There are many definitions for it, yet the Cambridge Dictionary defines it as “able to be maintained or continued” and quite honestly, many forms of “Sustainable Living” are not actually sustainable for most people. Much of “sustainable living” is for the privileged, and so what is everyone else to do?
Well here at Bravely Blonde we believe that living sustainably is easier than many think, and that simply being more mindful of what we do will go a very long way. So our goal is to provide simple steps that we believe most people can accomplish to live an intentional and sustainable life.
To tell you a little bit about myself;
I live deep in the heart of central California and I am very much happily married to the love of my life and my best friend.
Growing up I have always been passionate about animals, in fact that is also why I am so passionate about the planet! This passion for animals led me to working at a zoological garden where I educated the public on sustainability and conservation. These six years were wonderful and I am grateful for every moment of them because they helped shape me into who I am today. Yet, I wanted to have more flexibility so that I could focus to a much greater extent on what’s most important to me: my volunteer ministry. So I quit my dream job so that I could start living my dream life.
That is when Bravely Blonde was born.
What is Bravely Blonde?
Because my volunteer work often involves traveling, I wanted to find a way that I could work for myself regardless of where I was. Creating this blog provided many new challenges, yet it also provides many rewards. Here I can help others to find the inspiration they need to live better for themselves and the environment. I wanted to share practical steps that anyone can take to live sustainably and intentionally. I believe that there is no one way to live sustainably, and that it is entirely up to each individual to know what is actually sustainable for them. I believe that by simply being more mindful and intentional with our actions we can live better lives for ourselves and the planet.
Bravely blonde is not just a blog, but instead a lifestyle. Here at Bravely Blonde we believe that bravery is bigger than saying what you believe, it’s about living what you believe. Being a Bravely Blonde doesn’t have to mean you’re the bravest person, and it doesn’t even mean that you’re hair color is golden; Bravely Blonde means that you are living your life in a way that your dreams align with your values.
At Bravely Blonde we believe that positivity moves mountains, sustainable living is possible for everyone, and that bravery reaps the greatest of rewards.
So join me on my journey to live better and do better and lets be:
