Hey! I'm Disa.

That’s pronounced “dye-saah,” and it means "active spirit," hence the title of this site.

I also go by my middle name: Chantel

I'm a writer in Metro Atlanta, and I run this blog in my spare time as a fun way to document parts of my life, featuring my husband, our son, and our dog. This whole site is one, big about me blurb, so thanks for stopping by.

Drop me a message if the mood strikes.


Tech Specs:

  • Photos are taken with my iPhone, my Nikon DSLR, or my Fujifilm mirrorless camera.
  • iPhone photos are mostly* edited using RNI Films or Afterlight. 
  • Nikon & Fuji photos are edited using Lightroom.
  • Photos that are not mine are always credited within each post.
*I've also used the apps listed in this post over the years.


Disclosure

If I have received a free item from a company, it will always be mentioned, and comp products are only accepted from brands on which I would spend my own money. 


... and because I couldn't've said it better myself

"There are literally thousands of blogs out there that will give you pretty pictures (increasingly taken by someone other than the blogger), beautifully formatted pages, themed Instagrams, marble backgrounds and no opinions. Zero.

In a time when more and more blogs are turning into websites, with teams of people working on them and editors and photographers on hand – and this new rising group of super (wealthy) bloggers doing hauls of bags/designer gear/unboxings, and declaring how much they love everything, we are on dangerous ground of forgetting what blogs started out as. Blogs are becoming fluff.

... I just don’t do fluff." - Caroline Hirons


... and, and, please also note


I strongly believe in the Oxford comma.
