About Me

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Felicity (meaning 'happiness') and I'm a thirty three year old Gemini.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband, who for privacy reasons I'll refer to as 'D', and our toddler, 'M'. Between us we have four miniature dachshunds: Ellie, Louis, Gertrude and Nala. When I'm not at work I like to take M on adventures (music class, swimming lessons, play dates), spend time with friends and family, try out new vegan restaurants and recipes, travel to new places, binge watch Netflix and Disney+, and check out different Escape Rooms with D when we have a child free date night.

L-R: Louis, Gertrude, Ellie and Nala

The Blog

I originally started this blog back in April of 2011 as a way of documenting life in my twenties for my future offspring. Since then this blog has simply become a way of expressing myself and connecting with others. I ended up deleting most of my older posts, as they were no longer a representation of who I am today or the values I wish to put out into the world, but I may re-share a few in the future.

I actually came up with my blog name many years ago while I was watching the movie 'The Pursuit of Happyness'.  The movie title got me thinking about how the definition of my name is happiness and how fitting it was that I was constantly in pursuit of happiness.  I started using 'Pursuit of Felicity' for my online branding from that point onward.

Some Random Tidbits:

♡  I have a bachelors degree in Primary Education and work as a Public Servant in the Disability Support Sector.
♡  My love for miniature dachshunds started back in 2007 and escalated in 2010 when my family brought home a miniature dachshund puppy named Phoebe. This eventually led to me bringing home Ellie in 2014 and Nala in 2015, before moving in with my now husband and his two miniature dachshunds named Louis and Gertrude.
♡  I've been vegan since the 27th September 2015 and have been a huge foodie ever since. Food has never excited me as much as it does being cruelty free.
♡  I am a huge advocate for natural term breastfeeding, co-sleeping/bedsharing and gentle/attachment parenting. Becoming a mother has been the most life affirming experience imaginable for me.
