Homestead Hair Care

I’ll give you the recipe first, and then explain the world of hair as I’ve come to know it within the last year. Because I usually never read the backstory of why a recipe came to be, I just want to jump right in. However, you should read a little background about why you’re about…

The “Keto” (No Waste) Life of RAW Milk!

Sometimes in the wee hours of the night, my brain is restless and I scour the internet looking to see if I can do something… ANYTHING that isn’t of the standard “norm.” It started with cheese. Mozzarella cheese. When I quit my job in September, my homestead/homemaking skills blew up! I wanted to make, create,…

What You Need

Do what you need. Take what you need. Be what you need. Autumn is a time to slow down– to nourish– to recognize the need to reach down and figure out what to do next.

Painting Peaches

Our majestic peach we purchased 4 years ago, produced fruit the first year, then produced what should have been fruit, but failed to ripen the second year. And last year, it barely bloomed and we didn’t get anything. I was devastated. I keep thinking it’s because of where we planted it, but everything around it…

Stumble – make a mistake or repeated mistakes

We all do it. We stumble on our words, we stumble in life, and then we stumble upon something that guides us to what may be right for us. A few months ago, all I wanted to do was to get out of where our life was at the current moment. We weren’t doing things…

We All Scream!

Because I have a big girl job that yields big girl pay, I sometimes allow myself seemingly guilt free shopping. I will choose an item I have had my eye on and buy it. They are never big purchases, but little ones that bring me a tad amount of joy or an upgrade to something…

Back At It!

I’ve been on the Instagram scene, but have forgot about the blogging front due to personal changes. Sometimes, life is chaotic to do all the necessary things we want to accomplish. Oh mother— where have we left off?! Is this one of those relationships that we rekindle instantly after being distant for 10 months?! I…

Truth Serum

Hey, hey, heyyyy! It’s been a wild two months sans blog post. What can I say? We’ve been crazy busy!

Enjoy the Little Things!

They say it takes two weeks to make a habit. Never in my life would I have ever considered myself to be the “house-wife” I am today, but I’ve mastered the routine of a cleanly home– and it’s slightly freaking me out. We even make our bed– who am I?
