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 and share snapshots of my family. This whole site is one, big about me blurb, so thanks for stopping by.

Drop me a message if the mood strikes.

I'm a Fujifilm shooter, but many of my photos are shot on film.


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.
