Friends, I feel like I'm almost an expert when it comes to saving money while purchasing a homestead. We've lived in three different homes since 2019, and two of them were definitely "homestead" purchases. Both of the homestead purchases were hopefully going to be long-term homes for us, but it didn't quite work out that … Continue reading How to Save Money When Purchasing Your Homestead
It's almost time to say goodbye to my beloved garden. It's a sad time. A good time. It seems strange to be both. It's sad because it has been a year of work, and of trial and error.

My husband has been all for getting goats for as long as I can remember, but I've been hesitant. I didn't think I ever cared to try goat's milk, so why … Continue reading Bringing Home Our Lamancha Doelings

My husband and I were able to sneak away a couple of days ago to finish up shopping for our son's 11th birthday next week. It was so much fun! My … Continue reading Our Homestead Goals 2021
Last week I received a message from a television producer, asking if I'd be interested in possibly being featured in a new television show about homesteading. While I'm not really interested in being on television, this got my wheels turning. I'd really like to share our story with you, and just how much I've changed … Continue reading I Want a Simple Life! The Reason Behind My Vision
