Meet the Stones:
I am a 28-year old professional musician for the Army, and live in Davidsonville, MD (right outside of DC).
I grew up in Minneapolis, but have lived in Boulder, NYC, and most recently, San Antonio.
I have a passion for food, fitness and living a happy, mindful life with my husband and Wolf hybrid, Shiro.
After being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease in 2011, I knew I had to make a drastic lifestyle change. By adopting a grain-free diet, dialing back on strenuous exercise, managing my stress, and improving my sleep, I have been able to manage my symptoms and be completely off medication.
I enjoy lifting heavy weights, sprinting up hills, yoga, hiking, wine tasting, trying new fitness classes and cooking.
Grounded in a deep and unyielding passion for meditation, martial arts, and fitness, I undeniably think more than I should, but am only one deep breath away from being grounded.
I lived on the side of a mountain for a year in solidarity retreat and was chased away due to one of California's infamous wildfires.
I also used to LOVE dumpster diving but my wife does not approve, so...
Back when I regularity taught yoga I was super flexible. I'm now lucky if I can touch my elbows together.
We met in 2011 in lovely Boulder, Colorado and eloped two years later before Becca went off to Basic training for the United States Army.
Although we strive to be avid homesteaders, our first fully organic vegetable garden was a bit of a "learning experience" where only the red hot chili peppers survived the bugs!
We are super excited to share our stories, learning, and fun times with you. Please feel free to chime in and share your questions, feedback, and ideas.
(aka: Baby Boy, Wolfy, Bad Boy Johnson, Shireena, Creeping Charlie, Sun Goddess, Scaredypuss, Grumperstein, Wimperstein, Shederstein...)
My favorite pastimes include:
Sleeping on the floor/vent/couch/chair/grass/sun; going on sprints, runs, walks, hikes, etc; singing with mommy's horn; waiting for anyone to drop food; playing with other doggies; chasing: cats, squirrels, chipmunks, small dogs, small children, small cars, birds...; pooping where I am not supposed to; not taking baths!
