Meet Us

Once a brown-eyed homeschool girl fell in love with an incredibly handsome and hunky blue-eyed sign maker; they got married and the rest is history.

Now here I am, grown up, (kinda) a homeschool mama, aspiring (mostly retired) photographer, feeding the family wholesome food baker, attempting to be organic gardner, got to try it DIY-er, lover of Scandinavian design, ( maybe a tad bit ADD ) and this is my blog.

I live up a long lane in rural Indiana, have a wonderful husband named Clint and five great kids.  I love to dream.  (And a good cup or two three of coffee)

Clint and I spent a lot of 2013-2014 building our current home.  Clint was the general contractor, I was the designer, critiquer, sometimes amish hauler, and all around go-fer girl.  This was a very tiring learning experience, but looking back on it we’re very grateful for God’s grace and the support of our family.

Now we’re just slowly making a house our home, ever evolving with the needs of our growing family.  Fixing nicks and dings, embracing the unperfected and trying to remember to keep the most
important things (God and people) the most important things
