Yearning for more, but can’t seem to figure out what it is?
You look at your kids after a long day at work and you want to give them so much more. They grow so fast. Life is so short, but no matter how hard you try… it’s not something you can buy in a store. You yearn to raise them on solid ground. To show them that beauty that surrounds us all and teach them to appreciate life.
We live in a world where so much is taken for granted, success is measured by what you have, not what you know or the experiences that make up your life. And we’re surrounded by the same lost souls, searching for that missing piece in the next distraction they hope they can buy for $9.99.
But it isn’t there….
We’ve lost our way, we’ve lost our purpose, and we’ve lost our roots… all in the name of progress.
In a world that is so full of technology to connect us, we’ve never been more disconnected.
Disconnected from ourselves, our food, our true calling, and each other.
Society has adopted the more is better, work at a job you hate to buy things you don’t need in order to distract you from what you’re truly missing. Here it’s all about fast, cheap, and easy.
It’s time to slow down.
It’s time to reach down to our roots and discover what makes us whole, what makes us happy. What makes us fulfilled.
It’s time to take the opportunity and time to focus on what truly matters… each other.
Life doesn’t have to be a race.
It doesn’t have to be a competition of he who has the most wins.
It’s time. Time to dig deep down, find our roots and live a life a little simpler, a little slower, a little closer.
Closer to each other.
Closer to our purpose.
Closer to our food.
To the ground beneath our feet.
Regardless of where you live, regardless of what skills and knowledge you currently have. You can begin your journey toward a more self-sufficient, simple way of living.
Hi, I’m Danielle.
Wife to an amazing man, a mama to three beautiful farm girls, and a lover of all things simple.
I’m so glad you’re here!
Shortly after we had our first daughter I started to realize… this isn’t the life I want for our kids, for ourselves. There has got to be something more beyond the horizon.
I felt called to do something. To make a change. To dig deep down to my roots and find my true purpose.
And from there I started to realize we wanted to become more self sufficient. To return to our past, to our roots and live life more simply.
I learned to garden in the front yard. I taught myself to crochet in our living room. Make soap in our kitchen. And bake our first loaves of bread in a tiny oven in a tiny kitchen. And it didn’t stop there and we’re still working, learning, and embracing this life.
We only have a meager 1 acre lot, but we do what we can with what we have available and it’s surprising what you can do with a little ingenuity and dedication.
I’ve made it my mission to teach others how to ditch the modern life and embrace a simple life of self-sufficiency and homesteading.
I hope you’ll join me because life is always better with your hands in the dirt.
