“Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.”- Erol Ozan

Happily Lost is:

Following curiosities.

Indulging in exploration.

Seeking Balance.

I am happily lost around the world, happily lost outside, happily lost in the kitchen, and happily lost in everyday moments. Started in 2012, Happily Lost With Cece continues to grow and expand to include new adventures as they unfold. Explore the pages of my blog to come along on these journeys with me!

Cece is:

A writer.

A mountain-lover.

A cook.

A yogi.

A wife.

A traveler.

A Returned Peace Corps Volunteer

I am a 28-year-old Colorado native, married to my best childhood friend and adventure partner, Alex. We were mountain-dwellers with a life full of snow, bacon, and English before we became mato (bush)-dwellers as Peace Corps Volunteers in rural Mozambique, where we came to feel much more at home than we ever would have imagined during our two year- long service. In December of 2017, we finished our service and left Moz. We are now working our way through Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos before heading back to the United States, into the big wide open future!

Happily Lost will soon be:

Transitioning back to life in the U.S.

Returning to the mountains of Colorado.

Growing to include the Happily Here section, focused on yoga and mindfulness.

Wherever I go, I am happily lost.

I hope you’ll be happily lost too.

  1. I have always loved you and your spirit for adventure. Little did I think the first time I held you that no grass would ever grow under your then tiny tiny feet.
    Like Hiedi I am looking forward to reading your book.

    Love Always Grandma Darl

  2. Hey what a coincidence – I passed through Madibira several years ago, on a business visit from Canada, trying to convince the co-operative to make power from the rice hulls at the mill..
    time had indeed slowed down there… but a lovely place..
    is the rice mill there still working (operational), do you know?

    • Nice to hear from you! I don’t know about a rice mill, but we did visit the rice scheme and it still employs a lot of the community and exports “the best rice in Tanzania.” Funny to find someone else who has been there. What kind of work do you do?

      • I am an engineer. I have developed a system which uses agricultural wastes (like rice husks from the mill) to make power: this displaces diesel, and beneficial for environment. I was trying to break through there, and ended up at the Madibira complex.They have an excellent German mill, hardly used, tragic that they are still having problems to raise money to retrofit the power for the mill.
        I found so much water there, when I went there the river was raging through. So much potential!
        I was accomodated at the church for the one night I spent there.
        how long were you there for?

      • Oh interesting stuff! My best friend is in the Peace Corps there so I was visiting her there for about a week and a half.
