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.
