I write about my knitting projects, cooking adventures, time spent outdoors, and complications in life that make it hard to stay consistent. I write about what it means to embrace my faults and unexpected obstacles as well as progress and accomplishments.
This blog was inspired by my experiences living in rural, upstate New York. There, for the first time in my life, I saw people growing vegetable gardens in their backyards, making homemade soap, and hanging clothes out to dry on a clothesline. Looking back, I see how oddly sheltered my life had been before that time. I could access information and build friendships entirely online, but when it came to these basic tasks, I was clueless. What started out as a series of experiments just for fun turned into a different way of trying to live my life.
I've lived all across this country, but I'm currently residing in the central valley of California with my husband. I'm an educator at heart and by profession.
Thank you for reading my little blog. Enjoy!
