What can I say about my blog?!? You won’t find any miracle cleaning formulas here or 10 minute dinner recipes that no one else has thought of. My garden has weeds and my veggies are not always easy to grow, my house usually has one or two rooms that need cleaning and my dirty clothes hamper is never completely empty. It’s just me and mine living it real.
I’m just a regular country girl that is striving for a more self sustainable way of life. Ever since I was a little girl living off the land has always intrigued me. I think I should have been born in a different time or maybe on a farm but here I am trying to turn 5 acres into OUR own little farm!
My name is Tara and yes my mother is a huge Gone with the Wind fan. I call my dad “Daddy” and that will never change no matter how old I am. I’m married to a big Bear of a man for almost 12 years now that frequently likes to Dead Lift more than 600 lbs and Curl tree logs for fun. We have two amazing girls that fight like cats and dogs one minute and play like best friends the next. They are the reason I was born and put here on this earth. I haven’t always been a stay at home Mom but that is my current profession. One I’m happy to have with paychecks of kisses, hugs, chicken eggs, veggies, herbs, surprise bouquets of flowers from time to time and much more.
I want to pass on to you what I have learned from my family and from my own personal experiences. A lot of the ways of our ancestors are forgotten and with each generation lost forever. I hope my blog inspires you to try and get back to your roots, literally. Delve into your family history. There is a wealth of information and knowledge just waiting for you to grab and hold tight. I will share my stories if you share yours. Let’s all help each other to live a healthier, more self sustainable life.
You will find tips and stories on gardening, chicken raising, canning, recipes, knitting, sewing, cleaning and much more. I will share with you how we support our local farmers and growers as well. It makes me feel so good to know that we are teaching our children, at an early age, how important it is to grow your own food and support your fellow man.
There is something to be said for growing your own food, making your own clothing, raising your own meat and coming back to the land. It is definitely not a “simple” way of life but one that the rewards far outweigh the work it takes to get there. We still enjoy the luxuries of our every day home but it is so nice to be able to supplement homemade versus store bought quite often. That list is growing more every day and makes me so excited!
