Blessed to be a stay-at-home mom to three beautiful children, Melissa enjoys learning new ways to live more self-sustainably without losing her sanity.
I admit I am quite an overachiever and have the classic “oh I can do that!” attitude to almost everything. I need to learn to say “no” more often and take on less projects. But I know I never will! I have a ton of unfinished projects and am always thinking/adding more. The three kidlets make it a little harder to get things done but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I love making things, I get great satisfaction out of the accomplishment and knowing I did it myself! I enjoy cooking, canning, crocheting, gardening, raising animals, crafting, etc. But most importantly, I LOVE my family!
My dream (along with my husband) is to someday own my family farm (part of it at least) and start a CSA. Providing fruits and vegetables as well as pasture raised beef, pigs, and chickens to shareholders. We are working out a business plan and reading/researching a lot so someday this dream will be a reality. I also have a big love for babies. Pregnancy, delivery, etc. All of it. I would love to become a doula as well but I know that dream will have to wait until my own kids are grown.
I have been asked numerous times to start a blog and finally (after three years of not owning a computer….) I did it! Please bear with me as I am no where near a writer and my photography skills are lacking to say the least. I am constantly learning new things about this new world and excited as I know this will help me get more projects done so I can share them with my readers.
Thank you for checking out my blog! Enjoy!
