About Julia


My original “About Me” page said this:

I am a mother and wife living on 2 1/4 acres.   I am in an on-going process as a student of permaculture to use the land in a responsible, sustainable, and healing way.   I have a passion for trying to make our lives more simple and living more simply.  I also love the outdoors.  We garden, raise chickens, hang our wash out to dry, make our food from scratch, and try to live simply.

I will be sharing how I do some of these things and the struggles I come across.  So welcome to my life.  Hopefully we can learn from each other while trying to make the world a better place

But, I had a bit of an awakening.  I realized I wasn’t so happy homesteading.  I wasn’t feeling fulfilled.  And I opened myself up to being okay with that.  I outlined my overall feelings in this post.

Much of what I outlined in my original “About Me” is still true.  I still want to make this world a better place, I still crave simplicity.  But I’m going about creating that a different way.

I am a writer, a philosopher, runner and cook. I have chickens and turkeys, but no longer strive to provide almost all of my own food. I may or may not have a garden next year.  Homesteading is still a part of me, but not all of me.  And this blog will reflect that.

I want to serve you with my experiences.  I want to make this world a better place by sharing my struggles and always being honest. That’s my promise to you.
