My name is Christine & I’m currently a digital nomad living in the beautiful state of New York with my handsome husband, adorable toddler & charismatic pooch. A photographer by trade & academia, I’ve been behind the lens since 2008.

Our adventure began in December 2017, when our family packed up & moved to Hershey, PA to follow my husband’s career. Life doesn’t always go to plan; the job fell through & thus we’re charging forwards in a new direction which isn’t quite clear to us yet.

Dash of Dirt is a blog capturing my messy little life; all the dirty details which make it uniquely beautiful. I’ve been Zero Waste since 2015 & striving to be intentionally minimalist since 2014. My waste-light clutter-free existence got thrown for a loop when I became a crunchy mama in 2017, though I wouldn’t trade my chaos for anything. I’m also an avid DIYer with a passion for great food. A trail runner & hiker who believes I’m a happier person with a daily dose of nature – rain or shine. A clumsy yogi who drinks coffee like it’s my full time job.

These are the topics I write about. This is my perfectly imperfect dirty little life.

We have plans to homeschool our child(ren), inspired by montessori & wildschooling. I have hopes to travel the United States in an RV with my wild little family, putting down roots in a tiny home with chickens (I’m mildly obsessed with this idea). My blog may include those dreams as realities as time passes.
