“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Welcome to our Simple Life
Hi, I’m Wendy. I’m striving to be a good steward, enjoying our small herd of Mini-Angus, From Scratch Cooking/Baking, Gardening, Primitive & Vintage Finds and Health & Wellness!
We are almost finished building our New “Old” Farmhouse on 10 acres that we started back in 2015. It’s been a long journey but so rewarding at the same time.

What do you wish you were better at? Keeping up with the laundry, making your bed, doing the dishes? I’ve struggled with all of these too. We get so busy when we are raising our littles that often the homemaking duties get pushed aside. It’s ok to let some things go, but by design, the wife aka “momma’ is in charge of all things home. Find what works for you. It will help bring balance into your home with order is in place.
I grew up in the country but not directly on a farm. I’m from West Virginia and spent many summers at families that had farms. I’ve always been drawn to the farm life. Land to roam on, dogs and children at play, growing our own fruits and vegetables along with raising our own meats. There is just something so satisfying about living the farm life. You don’t even have to have a big piece of property. Just start small and see where it goes!
There’s really nothing better than biting into a fresh, hot, out-of-the-oven piece of homemade bread. I started grinding my own wheat and turning it into flour close to 10 years ago. It has such great flavor and health benefits. Once I started eating it, my “chicken skin” on my elbows went away. I make homemade cornbread, bagels, pizza dough, loaf and artisan bread, hot dog and hamburger buns and so much more!
