Hello! Welcome to our little neck of the interwebz.
Let's keep this intro short, sweet, and simple.
I'm married to an incredible man and have been for 11 years. I adore him to the ends of the earth. He is my best friend and he rocks Wranglers.
We live on a farm and farm for our living. It's not entirely the simple life, but it's precious to us. We've been farming for 5 years. Our farm raises pasture-raised meats (beef, pork, chicken) and eggs. We try and do things sustainably and in the most natural environment possible- which would mean allowing our livestock to be outside and on grass.
We have 4 amazing little girls (insert 'Bless his heart."). It takes a real man's man to live in a house full of 5 ladies. And they haven't even hit adolescents yet!
We homeschool. I fought the Lord tooth and nail over this one. He won. I surrendered. I'm still trying to figure out what it's all about. I love it most days. And it's super hard most days with 4 girls under the age of 7. But, it suits us just fine.
I'm an aspiring hippy. I want to be one when I grow up. I love the natural things in life. I guess you can't be a hippy without being a "foodie" so add that to the list. We love food. The real kind; that has butter in it from a real cow living on real grass being milked by a real farmer.
This blog is a celebration of what I love most about the life I live.
My favorite quote and something I try to live by is:::
"Wherever you are, be all there." - Missionary, Jim Elliot
It's very nice to meet you!
