I’m a Christian
Mom and Dad laid the foundation when I was a kid, then I made a renewed commitment to Jesus as a Junior in highschool through Young Life. As I plan my course in life, I rejoice that the Lord determines my steps (Proverbs 16:9).
We have been homeschooling for eleven years now. We use an eclectic/textbook approach along with participation in a cooperative and we love it. My son is a junior in high school, and my daughter is a freshman.
I have a passion for feeding my family organic, healthy, whole foods. Gardening has been a fun extension of that desire. While it’s just two small raised bed gardens, it still delights me to stroll out into my backyard and come back in with the makings for a salad or dinner in my hands.
I’m in the Kitchen A LOT
Whether I’m baking in it, cooking in it, or just cleaning it (remember those floor crumbs I mentioned?) I’m in the kitchen quite a bit. I like making things from scratch, menu planning, fermentation, and I’m toying with canning and preservation.
My Home is My Haven
As I mentioned, I homeschool, but not only that, my husband works from home, too. Since we’re all home a majority of the time, it’s important for me to make our home a cozy, welcoming place to be. I’m also trying to reduce the chemicals and waste in our home by taking baby steps to greener living.
I have two darling kiddos, a daughter born in 2003 and a son born in 2001. I’ve been married to my supportive, loving husband for 21 years. In 2012, we welcomed a rescue named Fluffy the cat, and his exploits are included throughout this blog. When not knee deep in homeschool obligations, our family enjoys exploring national parks. So far, we’ve visited Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Acadia, Zion, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Rocky Mountain, and Yosemite. We eagerly await our next adventure.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy your stay! When you’re done having a look see, join me elsewhere on the web…
