A little bit about me…

Dear Friend,

Considering the fact that you don’t know anything about me, I decided to start this blog with a few facts and the latest pictures that I thought might be fun.

At first, me and my family are settled in Anchorage, Alaska. The most beautiful place on earth (well, after Hawaii). It is cold and dark in January but during the short lunch walks, a creative mind can find simple beauty in the ice sculptures like this one:

I immigrated to the US in 2003 on my own, the plan was for me to go to Business School. This plan has been successfully accomplished: I received two business degrees, started my career in the financial industry and settled in.


We have a toddler in the house and my mom who we moved from Russia a few years ago. We love our friends, our jobs, our cities (I am including Maui here as we are obsessed) and this world. We are vegans and are leading a simple lifestyle that might get into a minimalistic lifestyle eventually.


I started this blog a long time ago but have not been very active as a full time job and a full house takes up a lot of time 🙂 My goal is to bring this blog to live and to invite you to share our journey towards simple, organic, meaningful life. I also will be sharing some tips & tricks on how it is to immigrate to a different country, what things are different in these two worlds.

Follow me on Instagram, stay tuned and thank you for reading!

Yours, Yana
