I am the mom to three of my own children, two step-children
and a surrogate mother to my nephew. Three kids live with us full time, two have moved out on their own and one visits us
every other weekend. We have a constant revolving door here.
We live in rural Michigan (no not on a mountain but) on five acres of land where
we raise chickens and the occasional pig. We have a menagerie of animals, most were dropped off near our home and have become
part of the family.
We have a large garden, we live frugally and love our life.
On this website I'll try to help others trying to live a simpler life.
