Bio

Mostly, I am constantly trying to catch up with myself!  I am a full time wife, mom, and employee. Jason and I are happily married with two boys, Connor and Grady, 9 and 7, and our 3 year old daughter, Leilee.

We have a little "homestead" in the country and we love it!  Jason hunts and fishes, we garden, we have chickens and we spend a lot of time gathering berries and mushrooms.  That means lots of canning, freezing, and drying foods.  I spend a lot of time creating things in the kitchen.

I am a runner, who spent the last year doing at least one race per month with my sister-in-law while my brother was in Afghanistan.  Next year, I have three half marathons and my first ever marathon!  One year ago, I transitioned to minimal shoes, and I won't ever go back.  

Finding a good deal is one of my favorite things to do!  Garage sales and thrift stores are full of treasures.  It doesn't help that I have a predisposition for crafting and collecting things...

My blog is where I share about all of the above things.  I also do book reviews and rant and ramble.  Most importantly, God has blessed my family infinitely. His mercies are new every morning. Even the mornings when I am awake way too bloody early! Thanks to our rooster.
