Suffering from chronic illness and depression, I once believed that life had little to offer and was probably not worth living. Coming from an urban area to live in such a beautiful, forested place in the Appalachian mountains, I've come to appreciate the natural wonders that surround me daily. Simple joys have been found in an organic lifestyle including gardening, farming and homesteading. Caring for my many pets and capturing their ever entertaining personalities has also brought tremendous joy and a renewed sense of purpose. I hope to share my love of nature, vintage structures, and our modern style of homesteading. Thank you.
