Hi friends, and welcome to the start of my blogging journey! My name is Cassie–I am 27, wife to my dream guy, Patrick, mama to the most amazing little girl, Charlotte Grace and a lover of Jesus, coffee and all things health + wellness.
I started my Figs and Freedom Instagram a little over a year ago in hopes to encourage others that eating healthy doesn’t have to be tough and most certainly doesn’t have to be super expensive. Here are the few things you can expect to see while following along this amazing journey of life with me!
F O O D:
If you’ve been following along on my insta then you know that my meals are simple–I don’t really like recipes that require more than a few ingredients and I am most definitely a meal repeater! Simplicity + routine is what works for me. Our grocery hauls pretty much look the same each week–with the exception of a few on-a-whim, indulgent items. Since moving to Brunswick, Ga from the Greater ATL Area, we don’t have quite as many health food stores around so finding healthy and affordable options at Publix and Walmart has been my hobby!
C R O S S F I T:
My husband and I have been doing CrossFit together for almost a year and a half now. Since our move + recent arrival of the little one, we decided to save the very expensive monthly fee of a CrossFit gym and create our own garage gym. BEST. DECISION. EVER.
O I L Y:
I recently jumped on the Young Living Essential Oil train and man am I loving it! I started my oily journey at the beginning of this year in preparation for our sweet baby–with her around, I want to remove as many toxic, chemical filled products as I can! This is an on-going process that we are taking one step at a time and boy am I loving the journey there. I love diffusing the oils, finding home remedies for health + wellness (mermaid hair spritzer, face serum, etc.) and even cooking with my oils!
M A M A | L I F E:
As a new mama just approaching the 12-week mark, I am going to start sharing my mom-hacks, tips and tricks I’ve picked up from fellow mamas, balancing work and mommy life, balancing being a firefighter wife with a newborn… because let’s be honest, those 24-hr shifts all alone will test you… it will test your patience and your sanity. But they are also the sweetest, most special 24-hrs ever 🤗
I am SO excited to start this blog and to share life with you all. I promise to be as real as possible for you guys–that means the good, the bad and even the ugly 💁🏻♀️
