Where to begin? It is always daunting to introduce yourself. I am married to a wonderful husband and the mother of 5 children. The eldest 3 are adults, then late in life I was blessed with 2 more. My husband and I have a small farm property of 20 acres. We live off grid and have a small solar power system set up currently just to charge up the cell phone. My husband is a truck driver. I am a SAHM and am homeschooling our 2 youngest children.
We are striving to live more simply and less dependent upon the “conveniences” which society deems to be so important. In the nearly 4 years since we went off grid, we have never wished we had stayed on grid. We have found a peace in this journey.
I refer to myself as a woman who is modern by necessity, but old fashioned by choice. I am modern in that I do use a computer and have incorporated very sparingly used technology in our lives. My heart though has always been one that treasures the old fashioned ways. The older I get, the more the lifestyle of my Grandmothers before me makes sense. There was great wisdom in how they lived their lives. As I travel this journey to Simplicity, I am blessed to be learning their ways. It brings joy to our family’s lives.
