Welcome to my little homestead on the hill! Here in rural Tennessee, there are still places that move a little slower. The tea is brewed with the sun, and the breeze flows through the open windows all summer long. In the winter, it's a roaring fire and hot cider keeping us warm.
For years I dreamed of having my own place in the country, to become self sufficient and to finally find peace and healing from a past I wasn't proud of. In 2005, I found that place, that peace and so much more. I learned that digging in the dirt was way more effective than any therapist. I learned that warm summer breezes were more soul-cleansing than, well, anything. And I learned in the satisfaction and pride in doing a job yourself.
My mission is simple: To become completely self sufficient and to teach others to do the same. I still have a long way to go, but I celebrate how far I've come. Follow me as I work within my means to get it done.Learn with me how to do it, BUT BE WARNED: I am a real person! I am not some eccentric millionaire- this won't be done in a year or even two. I have 4 awesome kids, which I home school, I have my own business selling soaps and pretty much anything else I can make (Check out the new web store!!
), and all of my crazy animals. I found peace here, but it's seldom quiet, and never boring. ;) Just the way I like it!
So grab a cup of coffee, tea, or anything from a mason jar, and cozy in- keep up to date with my blog, check out my creations, and leave any tips, questions, or just well wishes!
