I have made some changes to the blog and renamed it Happy Hill Homestead!!
This blog is a tribute to my heritage and family. My paternal grandparents were cattle ranchers in the Okanogan Valley. They started with very little and grew a family and ranch from the ground up. As a child, I spent many weekends and summers at the ranch on Happy Hill. Grandma taught me how to sew, can and cook. I learned about livestock husbandry, how to ride a horse and build fences. Now as an adult, living in the city, I dreams of those days on the ranch and long for the opportunity to raise our family on a little plot of land with a garden and maybe a few chickens.
I want to use this blog to document our lives as we go Back to the Basics. Living off less, while having more. Enjoying the simple things in life, like a home cooked meal and a good conversation. We have started our own family now and want to raise our son in an environment of health and happiness.
Maybe someday the homesteading dream will become a reality, but for now we will make the most of what we do have.
Join me as the adventure continues...
