About Fern Meets World

Fern Meets World is dedicated to helping you find adventure and meaning in every day, featuring lifestyle, travel, self-care, and other inspirational content. I believe that in order to live a consistently joyful life, especially for those balancing real-world obligations with dreams of travel and excitement, we must constantly foster a mindful curiosity even in our daily lives. In other words, once we discard the notion that everyday life has to be mundane, we can find adventure even in things which were once familiar and commonplace!

So, whether you’re interested in motivational content, lifestyle or fashion tips, or are actually looking for helpful travel recommendations, I want this blog to inspire you to make every day an adventure.

About the Author

Hi there! My name is Courtney, and I’m a Houston-based everyday adventurer, aspiring citizen of the world, wannabe foodie, and time-crunched bibliophile. I am originally from Hawaii, where I spent the first 13 years of my life on the island of Oahu. If you’re wondering about the nickname “Fern,” all credit goes to my coworker Brandon, who bestowed the honor as a cute shortened version of my last name.

Initially, I intended to use this blog as a chronicle of my aspirations to become a world traveler, until I realized that, as a full-time professional with a corporate job and limited vacation time, I don’t travel as much as I would like, and certainly not enough to generate consistent travel content. However, it dawned on me that everyday life can be exciting in its own right. Why should I have to limit myself to the traditional definition of “travel” when I can also write about unique food finds or things to do in my own town?

I’m so excited to share this journey toward a more fulfilling and invigorating everyday life with you.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of you in the future!
