About Me

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

I’m Maggie, and I have created this blog to share my love of curiosity, of learning, and of being a die-hard do-it-yourselfer.

I believe curiosity is a pathway to freedom!

I while back, I wrote a book called THE TEN MINUTE QUIT, detailing exactly how I was able to kick the habit of smoking cigarettes. Even though it hasn’t been out for very long, dozens of people have already bought the book and gotten started on a healthier lifestyle!

I like shirts with pineapples on them, and I’ve also recently figured out how to do eyebrow makeup….a personal triumph.

Eyebrows! I got ’em!

I’m getting married to an amazing man named Eugene, and we are figuring out all the details of wedding planning and closing the distance of our 5-year, 7,000 mile relationship. For me, it means going back and forth between California and Argentina for the past few years (oh darn ;)….)

This is basically how we are a healthy 80% of the time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read these posts. I hope they will inspire you to get out, get adventuring, get curious, and to find beauty and wonder all around you. It really is a life worth living.

If you haven’t done your best Michael Flatley at the Golden Gate at 6:45 in the morning, are you even living?

I do have an “Ask Maggie” section, where I share the stories behind my brand spanking new white hairs (yay for being in your 30’s), as well as offering words of encouragement support to you, my readers and digital neighbors, as often as you might need or want it.

Thanks again for reading, and I’ll see you in the posts!
