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 bare 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 mommy to a beautiful 3 year old girl and a rough and tough, yet somewhat dramatic, 1 and a half year old boy. That’s right, I’m a little bit crazy and decided to cram two babies in two years. We are currently living in Richmond, Texas. My husband and I have managed to move multiple times in our 4 short years of marriage, but are finally settling down. We moved from our 45 acres of land in South Carolina to a much smaller, more manageable home on about 5 acres. That downsize hasn’t stopped us from taking on more animals and more kids! To tally up the number of mouths we feed on a daily (sometimes) basis, that’s 2 children, 3 donkeys, 2 goats, 9 chickens, a rooster, 2 dogs, and a cat. Honestly I feel like I’ve forgotten someone. 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 30 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 back 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 10 years ago. Now I couldn’t care less!
I love what my life has become and I can’t wait to see where it takes me. Anyway, thanks for reading! I hope to see you back soon!
