About Me

Call me the black sheep of the family.

I’m a 30-something (pushing 40) socially inept gal living in the beautiful state of Maine,  mother of three rambunctious children, to include two dogs with a combined weight of 300 lbs.

I met my husband, self-professed anti-social media mogul, in Japan.  We met in November 1998, married in May 1999… happily ever after.  After much exploration, and two children later, we settled in Maine to raise our family away from the hassles of city life.  Baby #3 arrived five years after arriving in Maine.  Surrounded by trees and clean air we’ve built a spectacular life on 5 acres.  Folks may call us anti-social… we like to call ourselves pro-self.  We value each other, our family and our passions in life more than pleasing others.

I buy milk in glass bottles. I drive a Prius.  I am a weather junkie.  I must drink a cup of coffee daily.  I believe in buying local.  I love knitting but don’t do it often enough.  Sunflowers make me happy.   Fishing calms my soul.

This blog is about my love of a simpler life… family, love, gardening, nature, independence.  This is the place where I will share it, and begin my journey to obtain that life, one step at a time.

  1. Hi, I share your dream of a simpler life and think you are documenting it well with this blog. You are much closer than I and I am jealous of that. I look forward to reading more. Thank you!

    sunflowers make me happy too! 🙂 I found you through the wordpress tag “homesteading” sounds like we’re wired quite a bit alike. I LOVE messing around in the garden, learning new (old school) life skills, etc.
