You know that gut feeling you get when you 'know' that something will happen in your life? That deep down feeling of "YES"!? That's the way Victoria Gazeley felt about her dream of moving to a little homestead on the west coast of Canada. She just 'knew' that was where she was meant to be. So in 2008, after more than 20 years of living in apartments and townhouses in the city, she packed up her young son and moved into a tiny, family-restored heritage homesteader's cabin a few hundred feet from the ocean, surrounded by hills, hemlocks, and two very noisy ravens. On her 6 acres, she's learning how to be more self-sufficient, with a whole lot of simplicity and a big dash of style. She’s finally found her place in the woods. And she can’t imagine it any other way.
