Hi! I’m Alex. A Pacific Northwest transplant living in the quaint New England village of Mystic, Connecticut. The name Ferns and Peonies represents the influence both locations have had on my life.
So who am I? I'm an accountant by trade. But who I really am is a world traveler, a gluten-free and vegan cooking enthusiast, a runner and yogi, a designer and creator of bags, a wife and a mother of two calico cat sisters and a rescue mutt from Georgia.
Living with intention is key to having a positive effect on others. And having a positive effect on others is essential for living a healthy and compassionate lifestyle. I hope you join me as I travel, cook and bake healthy and cruelty-free food, run and practice yoga, sew my newest creations, and try very hard to be the best version of myself.
