Hey Everyone! In case you didn’t get to see the video we recently shared, I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself…
Brenda is a dear friend of mine and recently asked me to join her in the adventure of sharing our lives here at The Well Fed Homestead. I am really excited to give you all a peek into what life looks like for my family as we strive to live healthier each day. I have to admit I am a bit nervous too…goodness-I feel at times that I have so much to learn, but I am hoping you can share your insight and knowledge with me as we travel this path together. I’m sure you would like to know a few details about me…quite a daunting task, but I know we will become the best of friends as you learn a little bit more about me in each of the coming posts. For now I hope this will do:
I am a 28 year old stay-at-home, home-schooling mama to five young kiddos ages 8 years toÂ 7 months. I have been married to my wonderful husband Tim for just over 9 years. We live on a little bit of land (renting) and are just starting our first year with chickens! Who would have guessed our first pets would be chickens?!? Our days are busy, sometimes a bit crazy but always full of laughter!
I didn’t start out as someone who was passionate about real food and health, in fact…I was a coupon queen! I loved to see how low I could get our food budget to go. Over time my health became really bad. I already had lifelong thyroid problems but then to top it off with a few babies right in a row along with the cheap food made my body freak out. It got to the point that my condition was life threatening and I was ready for change.
