nature lover backpacking photo point reyes california

My name is Allison. I am a boy mom, a writer, and a nature lover living in Northern California. In 2009, I left the corporate world to be a full-time mom and started Get Natured to inspire others to live nurtured lives full of health and happiness.

Happiness is simple when you're a kid. I used to tell my parents, "I want to get natured!" whenever I saw water of any kind (a pool, a creek, a running hose...) While my grown-up modesty now outweighs my childhood impulsivity, I still believe that happiness is found in little moments and simple pleasures.

Living a nurtured life is about more than just diet and exercise. It is about fueling our bodies with whole foods, exercising to build strength and vitality, nurturing our creativity, and finding community in the world around us. Thank you for visiting!
