I’m so glad you joined my personal, cozy corner of the internet! I’m a mother & wife, gardener, homemaker, & aspiring homesteader.
The content you’ll find here is specially curated by me. I started this journey over 5 years ago, and I love sharing my journey along the way. It’s my passion to help modern mamas release their fast-paced lives and embrace a slower, beautiful, & more intentional life through homesteading.
I’d have never guessed my life would look like it does today. Growing up, my life was immersed in the western medicine model, eating the standard American diet, keeping busy to distract my emotions, not knowing any other way of life.
Fast forward to now, and I’m a mom craving a purposeful and intentional life for my family. Motherhood has been such a blessing. Having dealt with emotional trauma, busyness that turned to burn out, and major postpartum issues became apart of my story for a reason.
It has led me to step outside of the box and research holistic health. And through that journey of engrossing myself in information, I came to love and appreciate homesteading.
Although I may not have a ton of land (I have less than 1/3rd an acre), I use what I have to the fullest. You can too!
I am passionate about feeding my family meals with real, organic ingredients. While we’re not always perfect, most days in our kitchen consist of home-cooked meals. I’m not the expert in the kitchen but I’m learning ways to elevate a meal through my husband who is quite the amazing chef (maybe I’m biased). We love supporting our local farmers whenever possible by purchasing local eggs, grass-fed meat, or raw milk. Outside of that, if we don’t grow it in our garden, you can find me at the farmer’s market every weekend in the summer. It’s a favorite activity of mine. Here on the blog, I share my healthy and simple recipes for you to enjoy!
I’m thrilled you are here, and I am excited to share this roller coaster ride called life with you! Thank you for following along with me.
