Thanksgiving weekend Dad, Mom, Randy, and I loaded up in the pickup and headed to a Christmas tree farm where we (literally) cut our own Christmas tree down. It is an absolutely gorgeous tree! We loved decorating it and pulling out ornaments collected along the path our life has taken us down. From a beachy Santa on a hammock to Bryant-Denny Stadium to golden wheat…our ornaments are like a road map of our lives together. So fun to get them out and reminisce.

I am a wife to my wonderful husband and the mama to two beautiful girls adopted from China. We are striving for a simple life. We want to be able to provide ourselves with most of the items we need to survive; only buying things when absolutely necessary. We now strive to provide a portion of our family's food through organic gardening. I cook from scratch, live a fairly frugal lifestyle, and make my own non-toxic cleaning products. Please join us as we stumble toward a more self-sufficient and frugal life together.
