Welcome to Live Your Life Wild & Free by Kristi Trimmer, I’m glad you’re here!

It feels like a lifetime ago now... when I was 36, I lost everything in my life over the course of a year - my business and building, my house and car, my marriage and even my dog. Thankfully, I dusted myself off and got back up from the worst years of my life. My blog is about how losing everything made me start living a life filled with travel and adventure. I'm a storyteller... I allow you in to see the struggles and the triumphs, the tears and the smiles, the vulnerability and the chaos. I let you see me. For the past 4 years I was a full-time solo female traveler, visited all 50 states & 6 countries. I now live in Anchorage with my Australian Labradoodle, Porter Storm, who is my Medical Alert Service Dog. Seed Plant Bloom is my passion project - an organic gardening subscription box for the urban gardener.
