Hello friend! If your a new reader, thank you for stopping by. My name is Meghan and I’m a 26 year old gal who is a big dreamer and adventurer. eat.live.make is my personal blog where you will find lots of gluten free/vegan recipes, DIY’s, snippets of photography and our lives, and ways to live a simpler and healthier life.
I was diagnosed with celiac’s several years ago and consider it a huge blessing in my life. We quickly changed our diet from vegetarian to both gluten free and vegan.
I married my best friend in October of 2009. We met in Nashville at Lipscomb University. Since we’ve been married we have lived in Colorado, Tennessee and Alabama. Who knows where we will end up. When we first got married we spent hours in the kitchen together learning to cook, growing our talent for taste and enjoying one another’s company. Since then, my love for cooking has grown. It brings us both joy and is one of the many things we love to do together. And now our pup Dakota always joins us in the kitchen floor when we cook, waiting for the next vegetable to fall to the ground.
I am a passionate person.Passionate about where our produce comes from, where our clothes come from (most are bought used), and where and how we spend the resources we’ve been blessed with. After being sick for so long I am also passionate about my health and finding natural practices that will help me and others in our managemnet of pain and diseases. I am passionate about art and photography. Recently I turend my passion for photography into a business and love capturing the beauty of life into photos. If you want some pictures and don’t live in our area, don’t fret! We are always up for a good trip.
Creativity keeps me going, and it has since I was a child. I grew up in a environment that fostered and nurtured creativity. My mother is a professional seamstress and contractor. My father is an artist and a builder. I was taught at a young age the art of doing things yourself and creating things with my hands. And after several joint injuries that prhobited me from playing sports, my passion for studio art and theatre was re-kindled in high school. Things have been a bit dry the past few years, but I am digging deep into the well of gifts I’ve been givien and pulling up the talent I did not foster for too long. My favorite mediums are acrylic, water color, pencil, oil and oil pastels.
David always says that he and I were made for fall. Campfires, hikes, adventures, chilly mornings, hot mugs of tea and coffee paired with a cherished book make my soul happy.
I dream of a day when we can live in a tiny A-frame house on a mountain with our own garden in the back, goats in our yard, our dog by our side and children in our arms.
