Howdy y’all! My main goal for this blog is to share helpful information regarding homesteading, healthy eating, parenting, and living a more simple,”clean”, and self-sustainable lifestyle. I am by no means an expert on any of these topics so please bear with me. My hope is to be able to share my experiences with you along the way!
Now let me tell you a little about myself. I am a new mommy to a beautiful baby girl. It’s hard to believe that she is almost one! My husband, daughter, and I are currently living in South Carolina, away from all of our family and friends. Luckily, we have met several wonderful people here since our arrival. We are living on 45 acres of land to which we have only begun to take advantage of. In the past year we have taken on many new challenges, including a baby, 2 goats, 8 chickens, 2 roosters, 2 guinea fowl, and most recently, a barn cat. Needless to say, we have our hands full!
Growing up as city girl in Plano, Texas, this is far from what I had pictured my life to be at 28 years old. With that being said, living a simpler more self sustainable lifestyle is better than I could have ever imagined in so many ways. Knowing and understanding where your food comes from, how it’s grown, made, and processed has been a huge eye opener. Learning to take care of animals in order to one day feed our family is extremely rewarding. Even the simple, silly things like noticing that every morning I walk out of my front door, across the field, and into the “barn” with no make up on, hair a mess, a night-shirt, and cowboy boots. I wouldn’t have been caught dead looking like that 5 years ago. Now I couldn’t care less!
