Back to Our Roots

I am 25 years old, and a stay-at-home, full-time mother. My oldest daughter turns 5 in April 2015, my oldest son turns 2 in May 2015 and my youngest son is due May 3, 2015. I grew up in the country with horses and dogs. I completed 10 years in 4-H showing both dogs and horses, and even made it to the State Fair a few times. I moved into town when I was 17, and I've been trying to get “home” ever since. I much prefer the slower pace of the country over the fast pace of town.

We currently live with my mother, have three hens (a New Hampshire Red named Red, a Rhode Island Red named Sparrow, and a Black Wyandotte named Molly) as well as a New Hampshire Red rooster named Ace, and a 5-year-old pit bull. We’re in the process of moving into a new home and getting a trio of New Zealand rabbits so we can begin raising meat rabbits.

My husband-to-be works and asked me to stay home and take care of the children and animals. I run an online metaphysical bookstore from home, which can be found on Facebook, as well as sewing and selling pillows, blankets, and pillow cases for humans and beds for dogs.
