Purpose

NorCal Zen, was launched in May 2017 as an inspiration for mindful living. With the intention of sharing the unique beauty of northern California, while connecting likeminded souls from around the world.

It’s all about experiences, the healing power of nature, and the great outdoors of northern California. NorCal Zen is about choosing happiness. I’m a 37 year old, homeschooling mom, that loves books, but believe in learning by doing. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. My German Shepherd is always by my side. Horses is a very important part of my life. Above everything else is my daughter.

I have been blogging on other sites for a few years now, but neither of them truly represented the experiences that gives my life value; time with my loved ones, and a close connection to nature and animals. I’m going to write about the zen strategies that works for me. I often participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post, as a way of interacting with photographers around the world. I enjoy that very much. Sharing blog posts, and giving feedback is appreciated, and encouraged!

 

Love,

Ms Zen

  1. Now this is exciting! I really love this new venture of yours and especially the zen/minimalism connection, way cool….no, super cool! I have been personally working towards minimalism in my own life, not just things but a new perspective on life and all it entails. Looking forward to seeing where this blog will take you, and us! 😉

  3. Dear Maria, thanks a lot for following my blog. Hiking is so relaxing, especially with the beautiful landscapes that you can observe. California looks great on your photos. Hopefully one day I can visit it as well.

    1. Ooooh yes, hiking is very relaxing 🙂 It makes me very happy to share the experiences, and the beautiful landscapes with you. We went to McClouds Falls today. It was the first time for me, and they were marvelous. Going to share the experience in my next post. Looking forward to learn more about your adventures as well.
