Mary Sena is my first and middle name. Hopper is my last name. Sena is a little bit of an odd name, but I absolutely love it, and my family and close friends all know me as Sena. I’m named after my great grandma, Mildred Sena. I’m thankful they chose Sena, not Mildred.
I am a former occupational therapist, turned small business owner, blogger, retired tupperware lady, mom, wife, woman and just all around self development junkie.
After spending 2 years on a debt snowball and getting out of $70,000+ of debt, we (my husband Dave and I) purchased his family business (Natural Plus Nursery) in March 2014. We both quit our full time jobs, and plunged into small business ownership. I guess you could say, we have always been risk takers because we truly believe that it’s our responsibility to create the life we want to live for ourselves.
In March of 2015, our world was completely flipped upside down. Our first son, David, was born still. I left the hospital empty handed and devastated. Nothing in life is guaranteed, and from the moment I decided to never take anything for granted, including my TIME. I wanted to be in control of my days, and spend them doing the things that I love. When we had our second son on January 8, 2017, it became even more apparent that I want to teach him that anything is possible, and that life isn’t all about work.
Our first priority is FAMILY.
A little history of us
2013 was the year of getting married.
and 2019 is going to be the year of financial freedom, writing, and lots of travel. (Read more about our National Parks Adventures soon!)
This blog is my creative outlet, a chance for me to share my passions, my truths, my life and my business with others in hopes they can be inspired to create a life they truly love.
I’m glad you are joining me.
