About Megan

Hi, I’m Megan and I’m so glad you’re here! I love sharing stories that I hope you’ll find entertaining, relatable, and will make you feel less alone! Stories of relationship challenges (like being a partner of a commercial fisherman!), personal struggles, writing tips, the pros and cons of living a bohemian life, social justice issues, and more. You can view categories of content at the top of this page under “Categories,” and for a quick preview of some of the posts you’ll see, you can check out Millennials & Marriage and Last Dance with Mary Jane along with 9 Things to Know When Dating a Commercial Fisherman, and Protesting Solo in Montecito, CA.

I started writing in 2012 when I realized my favorite part of fashion designing (I’m an ex-designer) was writing the captions for my online store. Wanting a change, I moved from Charleston, South Carolina, to Carpinteria, California, and pitched to a local publication who gave me a chance. I now write 3 columns, features in newspapers and magazines (both local and national), and I love posting fun content for you on this site each week!

Born in Lawton, Oklahoma, and raised in Charleston, I lived around the world as a military brat until the age of 18, which means defining a hometown is not so easy. My fiancé Chris is a commercial lobster fisherman in Santa Barbara, California, and we moved back to California after living in a 34-foot sailboat for 3 years, traveling from Washington state to the coasts of Mexico. Along with deadlines and soaking up life in-between, I’m constantly adjusting to being a partner of a commercial fisherman. Here are a collection of stories to show you how hard and rewarding can be! (And if you’re a partner of a commercial fisherman, please join our private FB club!)

*Our dream is to live bi-coastal, spending the lobster fishing season in California and the rest of the year in the Carolinas. We’ve got a slightly built-out Sprinter Van to get us from coast to coast, so stay tuned for adventures on the open road – this is our first year of bi-coastal living which means candid, real-life stories will ensue! **Update: COVID-19 means we’re goin’ nowhere. Bummer.

Thank you for following along – I hope you’ll stay a while! Sincerely, Megan
