The Sofia behind the Ideas

I was once told that I was the type of person that could think of more ideas in 3 minutes than anyone could ever possibly execute in 3 years! I admit, it’s true. I’m constantly bombarding my husband with ideas. Some days it gets to the point where he just rolls his eyes and says, “Oh boy, here we go!” In fact, starting a blog is just another one of Sofia’s Ideas.

As I looked back on my life, and reminisced about all of the ideas I had (both lost and tossed), the various phases of life experiments, and all the extremes I’d gone to, I realized the one thing that had been a constant for me was writing. I’ve had a journal since I learned to write and so I guess blogging just seemed like it might be a good fit. And for the past few years, I’ve been moving my family towards a more simple, frugal, and green existence. This is what I am passionate about now. Hence, Sofia’s Ideas on Simplicity, Frugality, and Frivolity… all with an Eco-Mentality.


I’m a girl who grew up aspiring to stay single, have a loft in Manhattan, and be an anthropologist traveling the world. I never imagined a domestic life with children because quite frankly, I didn’t think I’d be very good at it. But, as a high school freshman, I met the one. It was love at first sight. And now I’m “mamos” to six lovies…
