I’d love to introduce myself. I am a Texas native, born and bred in the Lone Star State and transplanted to Ohio almost 10 years ago due to my husband’s job. We live on a 62-acre farm with our 7-year-old daughter, 2 horses, 7 chickens, 3 cats, and a dog. We have raised everything from Angus beef cattle to meat chickens to hogs to lots of vegetables and LOTS of watermelons (more on that later!). We currently grow hay as our main crop, with meat chickens, eggs, berries, and veggies rounding out the farm.
My husband has a full-time job off of the farm, and I am actually a registered dietitian. I stopped working at a “real” job when I had my daughter. Seriously, though, working as a stay-at-home mom while taking care of the day-to-day farm operations is way harder than an office job! I love what I do though, and wouldn’t trade it for anything – at least, not most days!
In addition to my nutrition background, I also love to write, (hence the blog), work on hand lettering, quilt, read, cook, horseback ride, and garden. I plan on sharing all of that with you!
The reason I finally decided to start a blog is that so many friends have said that I should do it, and who am I to turn down years of good advice? My answer in the past had been that I didn’t have time to write a blog – there was always too much to do outside! Well, there still is and always will be, but I think the time has come to share some of our unique corner of the world with you, hopefully informing you about the things we do (and what we’ve learned from our mistakes!), and inspiring you to try some new things along the way.
