“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”Marcus Tullius Cicero
Hi there! We are Mary Beth Bauers and Markus Sadler and we are the blogging duo behind This Wild Lifestyle.
This Wild Lifestyle is truly for the love of all things airy and outdoors. If there’s one thing we can both agree on, it’s that we’d always rather be outside.
Here you’ll find the latest on gardening, natural living, hiking, backpacking and other ways to get closer to nature.
It’s our sincere hope that our little corner of the internet will inspire you to reconnect with nature and, at the very least, bring a little bit of the outdoors in.
About Mary Beth Bauers
Hi! I’m Mary Beth. I am definitely what you would call an “outdoor person.” I love gardening, hiking, and cooking. Pretty much all my favorite things to do revolve around going outside. I get antsy if I have to stay inside for too long!
Markus and I have known each other for years and more recently decided to start this little blog together to keep in touch and celebrate our mutual love of the outdoors.
I know blogging is kind of the antithesis of getting to know nature, but I don’t think they have to be. I’ve honed most of my gardening skills by reading some of my favorite gardening blogs. The internet also allows us to spread the word about conserving nature.
This Wild Lifestyle is dedicated to bridging that gap. Let’s see how it goes, shall we?
About Markus Sadler
Mary Beth has been trying to get me to start a blog with her for a long time now so… here it goes! We’ve known each other since our first year of college, and even if we’re no longer dormitory neighbors, we still meet up a few times a year, usually for a hike.
I’ve been hiking and backpacking ever since I was a kid. I took a gap year between high school and college to hike the Appalachian Trail. I’m still just as enthusiastic now for the section hikes I try to do a few times a year as I was then!
Besides hiking, I also have a passion for conserving the world around us — we only get this one!
I hope you enjoy our blogging experiment as much as I’m sure we will!
