Let’s get fancy today! We don’t go out to eat very often. There are two reasons for this, it’s expensive and it’s far away. We live at least 30 minutes away from town with it’s many restaurants. And to be honest, when you make a shift in the way you eat, towards more whole and traditional foods…restaurant’s just don’t taste… Keep Reading
Y’all know I like to keep things nice and natural around here. After all, making a ‘green’ lifestyle shift was really our first step towards homesteading. So when I started learning about essential oils, I was really intrigued. Just a couple of years later and I’ve integrated them into my daily routine.

I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been pretty hot around here! Being a native Floridian, it doesn’t actually bother me that much, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some fun ways to stay cool.

I feel like certain skills that were once common place are really daunting in today’s modern society. Things like, knitting, cooking a whole chicken or turkey, and bread baking all come to mind. Luckily for me, my Momma made homemade bread on a fairly regular basis when I was a kid, and she taught me a few things about how… Keep Reading
