Hello and welcome to our blog! We are two sisters from Southern Michigan who began this blog as a way to share our ideas for a simple, healthy, and happy lifestyle. If things like gardening, raising chickens, homeschooling, cooking healthy meals, DIY projects, and home remedies are up your alley then you have come to the right place.
I’m Hannah, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother of three amazing kiddos, and a part-time ER nurse. What began as an effort to start cooking healthy meals for my family has turned into an inspiration to live a more self-sustainable, healthy lifestyle. My husband and I are both passionate about our journey towards starting our own homestead one day. For now, we live on a few acres out in the country where we raise chickens for eggs and meat and grow a large garden every year.
I’m Becca, I am also married to my high school sweetheart, and together we have two children, ages 4 and 5. I am a part-time social worker, but my heart is always at home with my family.We currently live in a subdivision on 1/3 of an acre. Although our yard is tiny, we have used the space we have to make a raised bed vegetable garden. It is possible to still grow your own food on a small plot of land! My husband and I share a dream of one day owning several acres of land where we can greatly expand our garden and raise animals.
Life can get busy and overwhelming so we believe it is important to make an intentional effort to step back from the chaos and find joy in the simple things. Things like watching our children run around barefoot outside, sitting on the porch while the sun sets, lingering over a cup of coffee, or reading the Bible each morning help us to remember to take life at a slower pace.
We like to spend our time baking healthy treats, doing home decorating crafts and projects, exercising (mainly running, yoga and pilates), preserving the garden harvest, and homeschooling our older children. We are so excited to have you follow along on this blog and can’t wait to share our experiences with you!
