About

You’re ready for a different way of life.

In the middle of a world that keeps telling you to pursue more, fancier, or shinier, you’re seeking less. Slower. Simpler. Homemade.

But it’s not easy.

  • You love the idea of simple and old fashioned living but you don’t know what that means for you: sell all your possessions? wear a bonnet? grind your own wheat?
  • You’ve tried things like baking bread or making soap but you’re frustrated by complicated directions that seem more like a science experiment than a recipe.
  • You wonder sometimes what the point is of everything you’re doing and whether the outside world values what you do.

Well, I believe that you can learn old fashioned skills that will make you feel thrifty and productive without feeling overwhelmed.

I believe that in a way, hard work at home will make you happier.

I believe a simple life at home is still full of purpose. And that it doesn’t matter what the outside world thinks.

From others:

“I have been wanting to return to a more simple life but I didn’t know how. Now I know it starts at home, with me.”

Jane

“I love your approach. It’s so much more realistic and practical than so many “schedules” that have immediately overwhelmed me.  I feel like I finally know what to do, and why.”

McKenna

“I took forward to each and every email I get. I’ve finally learned to make my own way and take control of my home.”

About me and this Website

A few weeks after my first baby was born, my husband went back to work. It was just me and a tiny peanut. I spend an hour that morning tidying up the house and doing a load of laundry. After that, it started to hit me. I was…bored. What exactly was I supposed to do all day?

I had always wanted to be a stay at home mom and had visions of myself setting apple pies to cool on a windowsill, hanging up laundry in the sun, and gathering up armfuls of roses. The only problem? I was terrible at baking, literally did not know what a clothespin was for, and had killed no less than four palm trees over the past year.

But, slowly, I taught myself things like sourdough bread and soap making, and found that they weren’t that complicated, they just had never been explained simply enough for me. I learned how to manage my time in a practical way so that there was time to do all those things I wanted to do and still keep the house in order.

Things are different around here now. We live on a hobby farm with three little girls and a lot less free time.

But I’d still love to show you how to build a home life that is simple, satisfying, and anything but boring.
