Hey there, friend!
Dreaming of beginning a homestead? Well, grab a cup of coffee (because I’m about that life…hello, mom life!), sit back and relax awhile.
I’m Mary, former city gal from Los Angeles, and now living the country life. And I mean deep in the country. As in 20 miles from the local town and 2 ½ hours from decent shopping. The struggle is real, friends.
I met my real life cowboy, who spent his childhood where we live now. It was love at first sight and now we have four incredible children. This life works for us because we both crave simple things and want those values & morals for our growing family.
My mission is to help beginning homesteaders live a more natural and simple life.
For nearly 10 years, we have started several different homesteads, planned & plotted gardens, built new animal structures, and created our homestead dreams from scratch.
And then life happened and we started all over. And over again.
Life is a journey.
This space is for anyone who is dreaming of beginning a homestead from scratch. A place that is focused on natural and simple living. And it is a space to make small changes towards that homestead way of life.
