Hey! I’m glad you somehow stumbled upon this little site.

I do not share my presence on any social media or advertisement platform, so I hope that you’ll pull up a chair and stay awhile. Maybe we could be friends (I actually mean it)!

I’ve created this website to have real conversations with real people. I don’t care for being fake or a flake.

In my eyes, you, and the things you have to say, are important. I want to know why you’re here and who you are.

After all, you’ll know why I’m here and who I am, so shouldn’t I give a damn about you, too? Without a visitor, I have absolutely no reason to have this website. They have journals for that!

Okay, I know you’re not here to read a novel, so here’s the quick version of my story and why I’m here on this site.

I grew up in a fairly typical American Presbyterian family. Keeping up with the Jones’, getting the most bragworthy career to make father proud. Sunday mornings were the only time anybody seemed to remember God.

I used to ask myself all the time if there was more to it than this. The fact that I, too, found myself always having amnesia towards our Creator, troubled me deeply. Meanwhile, my parents always talked about careers and six-figure jobs with veneration and urgency, as if life could never be any good with any less.

It took me being ripped up by my roots for me to finally begin to make sense of myself and the world. It really is crazy how much your surrounding environment and the people in it can cloud your understanding!

Almost a year ago, I got married to my wonderful husband, and started my new life in a new state (I had lived in the same place my entire life prior!)

Before my life took a crazy turn for the better, I honestly doubted I would ever escape my previous lifestyle of consummerism, pretend Christianity, selfishness, etc. But now that I’ve moved away and can see plainly who actually gave a shit about me, change comes a whole lot easier.

I encourage you to join me in conversation and learning as I begin my new, traditional, counter-culture life. You can expect to see a variety of topics here, including:

  • gardening
  • cooking
  • budgeting
  • faith/spirituality
  • creative endeavors
  • natural medicine
  • psychology/health

You’ll learn more and more about me as time goes on, and I also hope to learn about you! My goal in starting this blog is to post something every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. As a perfectionist, I need to put this goal out in the open, or else I know I’ll just sit on a million drafts and never get around to posting any of it.

I’m a homemaker trying to learn the best way to live this life, and I plan on sharing with you what I learn along the way. What about you?

  1. Hey! As someone who started writing as a means of finding like-minded people, I understand the part where you say that we could be friends. I would love to have a friend like you (and I mean that).
    Also, I would love to know your thoughts about adult friendships, how to nurture them etc… I moved toa much smaller city about a year ago form a fairly big city and I am still finding it difficult to find my people.
    lots of love

  2. Hey! I would love to be friends too! That’s actually a bit ironic, in a way, since I also moved just about a year ago. Before I moved, I would have considered myself a social butterfly. I was always trying to get out of the house, and there was always somebody to hang out with. So it definitely comes as a surprise to me to find myself here, still without friends in this area. The whole experience really taught me a lot about what true friendship is.

    I’m curious, what have you been learning from your similar experience? I’ll definitely be thinking on the topic- expect an article about it soon!
