Meet Earthy Mama Of 3 (Under 3!) Aubriana Kasper MacNiven

If running away to the country and living off the grid with your family is a dream of yours, get ready to meet a mama who’s done just that. Once the pandemic hit, that’s when major changes started happening for Aubriana Kasper MacNiven, one-half of the floral design duo Marigold. Then living in San Francisco’s bustling Mission neighborhood (within walking distance to Marigold’s stunning studio and retail shop), in mid-2020, Aubriana, her baby girl Margaret (“Mars”), and her husband decided to move to the Santa Cruz mountains, where he grew up. While they learned to live off solar power and well water, they also had another big shift on their horizon: they were expecting twin sons!

Below, the mother of three (under 3!) invites us into her colorful country home, as well as her gorgeous S.F. shop, while sounding off on her nature-centric life and her favorite baby-friendly products (from Dusting Power to Organic Formula) by a fellow sustainably-minded brand, Burt’s Bees. (You can also see the sweet family in action in our latest YouTube video!)

This post is brought to you by Mother + Burt’s Bees.

Packaging may vary, as Burt’s Bees Baby & Mama products have a new look with the same nature-loving ingredients.
