My Mister and I moved into our first home in September of 2011. It takes daily hard work to make it a place of peace and rest...

If you turn on an Alabama song or old country music I'll sing to the top of my lungs. I love to cook in cast iron, can food from my garden, and take care of all these little homestead critters. Those are just a few of the many things I love in this ol' world. Follow me and you are sure to find out more!
