life in good health



I'm Leila — a homeschool mom, author, entrepreneur and creative who believes the best lessons can be created in your own backyard!

I'm just a girl from the small Enchanted Island in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. I always knew I had a big purpose for my life...but I didn't always know how to find it.

My name is Leila Díaz-Thamer, a Puerto Rican native, married to a loving and encouraging husband. I homeschool our two girls, I have published a Bilingual educational book, love to write, read, garden and keep up with fitness activities.

As a homeschool mom, gardening and the outdoors has become the center point of our family. It has provided time to be in nature (mental health!), lessons on nutrition and health as well as our connection with our ancestors, our planet and our environment. I have learned to love gardening so much that I’d love to share what I’ve learned as well as helpful tips to get your “green thumb'' going regardless of your level of experience.

With no training in gardening,
I took a chance on going after what I loved, for real.

"Stay at home" and homeschooling could feel lonely at times but it does not have to be. I've learned to make it an adventure where our entire family learns while making a positive impact in the world. 

And now I'm here to help you do the same.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.


Hija (Daughter)

I love my parents. I would not be where I am if it was not because of them. It brings me joy watching them create memories with my kids.


Babe (Wife)

That's what my husband and I call each other. Would not change it. 



I am extremely proud of this title. After the struggles and miracles to become a mom, I am honored to hear this name. 

Other names I answer to



B is for Bilingual was inspired by my love to my daughters, education, and the pursuit of breaking language barriers. 



My brother is a gift to me. I have the privilege to count on him and also consider him a friend. We happen to share the love of nature and all things outdoor.



This is a title I take with special care. This is a selected group, and the ones who do call me Friend know that I am present for them no matter how far I might be.
