Hi, I’m Jill.
A little bit about me:
- I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I know where I will be spending eternity. Do you?
- I am passionate about horsemanship, and have been obsessed with horses since I was 2 years old.
- I use natural remedies and essential oils whever possible.
- I have a bad habit of impulse-buying farm animals…
- I tend to thrive on a bit of organized chaos.
- I love weathered barns, quirky old farmhouses, rusty antiques, and chipping paint.
- I haven’t always eaten whole foods like I do now… In fact, I have a horrible sweet tooth and used to drink a lot of soda.
- We live on one-income, and are debt-free (except for our mortgage). Here’s how we do it.
My journey into modern-day homesteading all began with a compost pile.
Since then, I have had a sneaking suspicion that most people have a bit of homesteading spirit hidden deep inside of them.
I write this blog to encourage you to explore those ideas yourself and return to your roots of self-sufficiency and simple living, whether you live on a sprawling ranch or in a high-rise apartment.
Remember, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey. And I look forward to sharing our journey to simple, wholesome, sustainable living with you!
Ready to come along for the ride?
