I’m Michelle and I am a writer and photographer based in Omaha, Nebraska. Growing up, I devoted most of my time to dance and school, but after graduation, I moved to Florida with nothing but three suitcases and one friend…that friend became my husband in 2013 and life continued evolving in exciting ways.
After getting married, Ben and I started traveling the world together. He’s into all things extreme and has introduced me to activities like surfing, snowboarding, and motocross. In return, I share my love for “slow living”, art, and yoga. It was through our travels that I developed a passion for holistic wellness. The whole, organic, and locally-sourced foods from some of our favorite destinations, mixed with the simple joys of sunshine and good company, opened my eyes to a healthier and more sustainable way of living. In April 2021, I will complete my certification in holistic nutrition!
I created Freely Mi in February 2014 as a way to document the everyday experiences that were re-shaping my life including my relationship with God, plant-based eating, and falling in love with photography. I hope Freely Mi serves as an outlet to inspire and encourage you to live a more fulfilling and fruitful life.
