Hello hello! And welcome 🙂

We’re family of 6, living in Joburg and set on carving out a lifestyle that resonates with our values…which is not always easy in the urban context we live in.⁠

We live in a humble little apartment in Joburg (we’ve just moved so I take this back 😂😛). We love a good adventure, so you’ll often find us exploring places & spaces together. ⁠

We love & enjoy each other ❤️. We spend a lot of our time together because we homeschool & both parents work mostly from home. But we still take a day off each week to turn all our screens off & hang out as a family. ⁠

We don’t make a lot of💰😅so unfortunately you won’t find a lot of fancy / covet-worthy things here 😅 but we pursue things that are on our hearts…family & intentional living are some of those…and God has been faithful to see us through, man 🙌🏾⁠

Main storyteller on the page is myself, AKA Mama. I create content that revolves around parenting, home education, marriage and living a bit off the beaten path, and seeking adventure in the concrete jungle of Jozi & beyond.⁠
