Thank you for your interest! Simplify, Live, Love is a PR friendly blog and I enjoy working with brands that align with my green and eco-friendly life choices.Michelle Marine - simplifylivelove blog

SimplifyLiveLove is written/edited by Michelle Marine, a bilingual, semi-crunchy mom of four living on five acres in Eastern Iowa. Michelle has a snarky sense of humor, an MA in English Linguistics, and a BA in German. Twelve years abroad in Europe and Asia fueled her passion for greener living, Great Pyrenees dogs, backyard chickens, solar power, and passive houses. In an ideal world, Michelle would live like Barbara Kingsolver and eat only locally produced food. Her blog, SimplifyLiveLove.com, encourages busy families to slow down, make healthy changes, and enjoy life.
