This is a girl who believes that synchronicity and interconnections exist everywhere — we just need to pay attention. Her name is Andrea Duclos, but she usually goes by ‘Drea’ (hence her handle Ohdeardrea). Let’s meet her and her beautiful family!

She’s curious for life, has a lust for exploring, and feels a deep love and concern for the earth. She’s been that way forever! She hopes to inspire us to love the earth, the universe and ourselves… and she really does, doesn’t she?
LEMON Magazine [LEMON] – What is that Instagram account? Seriously, I spent at least an hour looking at it and dreaming! You are beautiful and so inspiring, congrats! How’s life these days?
Andrea Duclos [A.D.] – Thank you! Life is great! A constant adventure. Up and down. Forward and back. It’s a great big adventure and I’m here for it.
[LEMON] – Where is home for you?
[A.D.] – It’s a little bit everywhere these days. We have a yearly lease in a small beach town in Nayarit, Mexico. We love it there so much. But we just escaped to Guatemala this summer and are now proud owners of an off-grid farm out there! Mexico will be our home for a few more months until we make the official move to farm life in Guatemala.
[LEMON] – What’s the best way to describe your family?
[A.D.] – “Strange and awkward” according to my ten-year-old Marlowe Paloma. I wouldn’t disagree with her. Though I do think we’re more than that too. Like, really fair, kind, and easy and free.
[LEMON] – She follows you guys everywhere. What’s your top destinations for a family trip?
[A.D.] – I don’t think we’ll be traveling too much these days with all the new restrictions and things in place. But we’re bussing back to Mexico from Guatemala soon. And then we’ll drive right back here in 6 months or so. We might be doing a big family trip to Colombia next year for my grandmother’s birthday. Other than that, we’ll probably be doing small trips in Guatemala, if at all. I think we might be pretty tied into farm life.
[LEMON] – What’s love?
[A.D.] – Respect, kindness and compassion.
