Hi there. I’m Keri and I live out my days on the southern tip of Africa. I’m lucky enough to be loved by Andrew, an Englishman who is passionate about food, travel, and, rather predictably, golf. (drop me a line, fellow golf widows. let’s do lunch) I’m into words – both reading and writing them. I love questioning the world we live in; I’m not afraid to cry and I love to laugh above everything else. I’m passionate about adventuring, moving my body, learning, spending time with loved ones, breathing deep, drinking wine with good friends, eating a plant-based diet, and living the kindest life I possibly I can.
I hate going out on weeknights.
My family are my best friends and the people I trust the most in the world.
Unannounced visitors make me anxious.
People who don’t like to read books really scare me. And the funny thing is… I married one.
Not following a vegan lifestyle sooner is my only regret in life.
Dawn is my best time of every day.
I collect discarded porcupine quills and bird feathers.
Ignorance is my worst trait in a person and impatience is my worst trait in myself.
I really want to be a mother one day… I think. I’m just not sure when.
I’d happily stay in couching it up every night for six months to save enough money for one week of travel.
Sometimes people don’t get my sense of humour.
I have a ridiculously weird amount of moles and beauty spots. I’m basically like a wet dream for a connect-the-dots addict.
I wish I liked wearing makeup more than I dislike having to take it off.
Understanding that hurt people hurt people has helped me to forgive and forget.
I really, really would have liked to have met Maya Angelou.
I used to wear my heart on my sleeve far more brazenly than I do now… I miss that sometimes.
There is nothing better than waking up early and brewing a fresh cup of coffee.
I have a thing for dead flowers.
