Hi, I’m Sheri
I’m a single gal, a modern homesteader, follower of Jesus, entrepreneur, struggling gardener… and, I love to cook! Especially ‘old school’ recipes from scratch.
I presently share a home with my mother, who asked me to stay with her after Dad passed away.
Leaving the City Behind
I wasn’t born a homesteading gal. I was born and raised in the city. Growing up, I was expected to do the usual things; graduate from high school, go to college, get a 9-5 job, get married, and have oodles of kids.
Homesteading and the single life was the farthest thing from my mind!
However, in July of 2014, mom and I made the move to the country in search of a sustainable lifestyle.
Moving to the Country Has Been a Learning Experience
Adjusting to country life and raising chickens has been a challenge. Yet, over the course of time, not only have I learned a lot about chickens, I’ve also learned a lot about myself!
I’ve realized that I have a passion for this way of life – something that city gal I used to be would never have given a second thought to.
Spending time outdoors, learning about the things that grow on my little homestead is quite enjoyable!
Spending time with my chickens — better than therapy!
The Biggest Lesson
There is still a LOT to learn… but, I enjoy the learning and the process that goes with it. It has made me appreciate this organic way of living and taking care of myself. I’m truly thankful that I agreed to leave the city behind.
The biggest lesson I am learning, is that I can have the life I want – IF I am willing to work for it!
Like a big ship on the sea, that turns around slowly, degree by degree, I am changing my life for the better!
It was a BIG decision for this city chick to pick up and move to the country! However, with the lessons I’ve learned – am still learning – I know I have what it takes to run a small farm.
Our chickens are just the gateway to the homesteading life that we want!
This is my journey…
I hope as you follow along, you will find it entertaining, enlightening and even a little bit encouraging.
Welcome to my homestead,
