Hi, I’m Amber and I love my family. I met Matthew years ago on a tiny Caribbean Island and it’s been charming chaos since. We have three kids; Piper (13) Oli (4) and Milo (3). Matthew is a firefighting cartographer and I’m a photographer. Somehow along the way we became an accidental family influencers, charming chaotic nerdy family influencers. It all started on Instagram when I started posting photos of baby Oli, the mom blog came later.
Now our little blog is evolving, because people grow and change. We will always be crazy Disney blog nerds and beach bums, but we are on a quest to become better humans and I’d like this little family blog to go more sustainable and healthy. So Faust Island will be an Eco-Friendly Green Parenting Blog in 2020.
Parenting philosophy hasn’t changed, we are raising happy healthy good people.
Why Faust Island? Faust is our last name and the island is because we met on a Caribbean Island and now live on a South Carolina Island. A little superficial maybe, but the Faust Lane was taken. Some day we may move off this little island to the mountains, then we will have to revisit the blog name.
Where should you start? I read somewhere that mom blogs should be part daily journal and part educational. So I try to blog monthly on what’s going on in our lives, see the lately blog tab. Then I post sustainable living tips, food, health and wellness posts under the lifestyle tab. Parenting topics, crafts, kids book reviews and fun family activities can be found under the family tab. I’m not an expert on anything, but I’m happily learning along the way and I enjoy writing about it.
