writings from a women-run modern homestead. 

adventures in intentional living, radical homemaking, finding meaningfulness in the mundane, and subverting the food systems that be to feed my family nourishing food from our bit of land.

the resistance starts at home.

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

“Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly, it is your masterpiece after all.”

That phrase invigorates the crap outta me. Anytime I think of it, it makes me want to evaluate and edit my life accordingly. Anytime I am in doubt about the choices that I am making, it reminds me that for as long as my heart is beating, and my mind is moving, that I have a choice and a chance to make another change. It keeps me remembering that I shouldn’t be fearful to continue trying new things, following new paths, uncovering new truths. This life is the real deal. This is not a trial run. This is the masterpiece. And possibly the most profound edits we can make are not alterations to our circumstance, to what we are doing, or where we are at - but instead, an alteration to how we view exactly what is, as it is. 

Here are some bits from my week that made me appreciate exactly where I was. 

I hope that your week was overflowing with moments like these as well.
