I'm Annie-- wife to Brandon and lover of just about every animal I see. We call Charm City home and we love exploring our beautiful, unique city. I love watching The Office reruns, experimenting with vegan recipes in our kitchen, documenting the big and little moments of our life, dreaming up Disney World vacations and trying my best to make the world a better place. 

I'll wear anything with a floral print, I feel at home in a thrift store and I'm constantly finding new ways to challenge myself and push the status quo. I like hiking and talking about feelings and remembering that Jesus is why we're here. 

I'm passionate about protecting the environment, living with less and singing loudly in the car. 

I started The Free & Wild Blog in 2014 as a way to document life and I never imagined that people would care about my life, travels, recipes, tutorials or thoughts. But things happen and I've found my own little spot on the Internet--and I'm glad you're here!
