Thanks for stopping in! If you were here in my living room I’d hand you a basket of laundry. We’d fold clothes while I nurse
the baby and fold all the things I could one-handed 🙂 . Oh, and we would drink peppermint tea dried from last year’s garden.
Sigh. Let’s chat.
I am passionate about eating foods rich in nutrition and close to the ground they came from. I am a huge advocate of buying from your local grower. Pay the extra change if you need to. You’re investing in your neighbor.
I love to garden. Do you want to see a miracle? Start a garden. You know the saying “money doesn’t grow on trees”? Well, fruit doesn’t grow in plastic wrap. Sometimes I forget that. Somebody picked those strawberries that I am now munching on. These are things I think about.
What are you passionate about?
I love cooking, at least on most days. I experience burnout. Scratch cooking multiple times a day is….tricky. But the rewards of homemade, not from a box are countless. We are healthier, stronger, and happier for it.
We have five beautiful kiddos, ages 7 – 7months. I’ve been married 8 1/2 years. We home school. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. I am a stay at home mom. Jesus loves me. That is the best part.
To answer the question, “Why blog?”:
Because I love my life. I love being with my kids. I love my hubby. I love gardening. I love being creative in my home. I want to share that with you. And I want to learn from you. I would be honored to hear your story.
Connecting is one of the main reasons for writing this blog. I often wish I lived next door to another mama who has been homesteading, cleaning & cooking traditional foods for a crowd for years. I am a hands-on visual learner. Sometimes Google just doesn’t cut it. There’s nothing like having a mentor that’s right beside you.
