My name is Sarah and I live in the Texas Hill Country with my handsome husband, Gabe, and our four children. I enjoy knitting, gardening and anything homemade. Because we didn’t have enough chaos in our lives with four children age six and under, we also homeschool. In the summer of 2016 my husband retired from the Army and we found ourselves faced with the difficult decision of whether or not to stay in Washington state or move to Texas. One year later, we took the plunge and purchased four acres of land in the Texas Hill Country. Slowly but surely, we are working toward turning this place into a self-sustaining homestead. Our goal is to create a mini oasis of fruit trees, vegetable gardens, bees, chickens and any other small farm animals that we decide to bring into the fold. Oh, and also build a house on the property. This blog is my way of sharing our experiences with friends, family and most importantly, our children. Enjoy.
