First, I am married to a man who I can't imagine living my life without. We have 2 kiddos, a boy and a girl. I'm a feminist. Thrifting is my self care and I love filling our home with decor that have stories attached to the items I find. My husband and I love working on our fixer upper, slowly but surely, am I right? We have too many ( yet not enough ) animals; 3 dogs, 12 chickens, 2 goats, 2 ducks & 3 rats, yes....rats.

Born near Chicago ( GO CUBS! ), I grew up in Southern Illinois and moved to Western KY just out of college. I'm a city gal, but here I am.... starting the journey to homesteading/urban farming. My husband thinks I am crazy, and he is probably right. But I can't resist this pull I have to be more self sufficient. The dream is likely prettier than the reality of it, but we are here for all it brings us. When we are not working you can find us tending to and taking care of our small homestead, at the library, at Rural King, and for my husband and I, getting new tattoos.
