Fireflies are like the coolest bug ever. They physically produce light! They bring sparkles in the dark of night and instantly deliver beauty, peace, and joy.

The major thing I focus on at Simplify Firefly is not the anatomy of a firefly, but on what the firefly does: it draws us closer to the light. At Simplify Firefly, I focus on inspiring you to be your brightest no matter what you’re faced with.  

My name is Christy. I’m a blogger, creator, and gluten-free consumer. Throughout my decades I’ve noticed that ‘simple’ has twinkle. Yes, I just said that. A big passion of mine is health and weight management, after having to adjust my diet to gluten-free, dairy-free, and other major allergens, I had to learn how to simplify my menu and still love it. I’m super excited to share with you some of my tips and delicious recipes! And help you lose weight! Let’s just say I never feel deprived. 

Another passion I have is quotes. You can learn SO much from people who have already been there, done that. I’m talking about inspirational quotes, Bible scripture, and motivational quotes! Words definitely spark my tinder. And when ignite the light, we learn more about who we are and what we’re capable of. 

The bottom line here folks is when we can illuminate our true selves, we too, like fireflies, can instantly deliver beauty, peace, and joy in the world around us. That’s what I’m after, how about you?

Throughout my blog posts and on my Pinterest and Facebook page you’ll find a TON of quotesBe sure to use the search box in my blog, I’m sure I wrote about it. And head to the shop for some fun finds! Remember, simple has twinkle!

“We just used our Laplanders on a cross country trip.   I was driving my in-laws to see a relative.  Because of their age and COVID, we were very cautious about making stops along the way.  So we packed food to take with us instead of risking stops at restaurants.  The Laplander was wonderful not just for eating in the car but also for making sandwiches.  It provides is a convenient flat surface for doing so.   My in-laws also used their Laplanders for a pillow and for back support.  The other thing I appreciate is that they fit in the pocket on the backside of the seats (more convenient than other lap trays or other pillows). ”
