About Me

Hey there! My name is Lisa and I am the author of this homestead blog. My journey to this point has been long, but I am so excited to be where I am in my life. I have been married to my wonderful hubby since 2004. Every once in a while I quiz him to see if he remembers the actual date. He retrieves the correct information about 50% of the time! My birthday really throws him! After 6 years of infertility, we were blessed to be able to adopt our daughter as a newborn. Two weeks after we got home with her, we found out we were pregnant! So, our two littles, a girl and boy, are 9 months apart almost to the day. This miracle has led to incredible joy and a fair share of chaos!

When I started blogging years ago, it was actually about our journey to start a family. When I began this blog, I decided to bring those posts over. Though they don’t relate to my current topics, they still show a large piece of my life and the vulnerability shared will hopefully help someone else who stumbles upon it. It was actually during those years that we started looking into becoming more self-sufficient and being aware of what we are using and consuming. I hope you will join me for the ride as we figure out this whole homesteading thing. Even if we only are able to accomplish half of what we plan, I will be proud of our journey!
