Gravatar- Laughing head shot

Hi! My name is Aimee. I’m a 30-year-old physician turned blogger with the mission of personal growth, spiritual connection, simple living and finding magic at every turn. I ‘m a native Californian plucked off my beach in Santa Cruz for medical school in rural Missouri (We’re talking the Amish tie up their horse and buggy at Walmart). I survived my training, met the love of my life (and now husband) Michael, packed up our worldly possessions in a truck and are now proud residents of Connecticut! I’ve recently decided to take a hiatus from medicine to pursue some creative endeavors (enter- my blog!).

Here I hope to pass on some of the wisdom I have accumulated from my years of mistakes, relationships, avid reading, meditation and spiritual practice. My goal is to educate others (and in part, myself;) about the ways we can become better versions of ourselves and live in simple harmony with nature and others. The name Coffee & Lavender comes from the stimulating/inspiring/motivating effects of coffee and the peaceful/meditative/cleansing effects of lavender; and striking that balance in life. Incidentally, I’m obsessed with smelling things, and these two scents (along with old books) happen to be a few of my favorite aromas 😉

I’m so happy you stopped by! Pull up a chair, and a cup of coffee if you like!
