Hello there, fellow moms! I’m so excited to finally unveil the chapters of my life to you. My name is Alyssa from Stickan Photography, and I am a busy mom of three adorable and very busy kids. As a Christian, I always strive to put my family and faith first. However, I have to admit, saying no is not my strong suit. With my job as a teacher coach, and being married to a fellow teacher, life can get pretty hectic. But amidst the chaos, I have found solace in my little patch of acreage and I am welcome you to learn along with me. Are you intrigued yet?
Embarking on my homemaker journey has truly been a labor of love. My goal, a dream really, is to gradually morph our little farm into a thriving haven of wholesome living. A big part of that dream is due to become a reality in late May when our lovely goats are expecting babies. Their arrival will inject fresh life into our farm and a bundle of new responsibilities. Another part of my grand plan involves introducing chickens into our mix. Yes, you read that right, chickens! They are such hardy creatures and, not to mention, a great source of fresh eggs. Talk about self-sufficiency, right? I find myself enthralled by the thought of seeing them freely roaming around, adding to the vibrant atmosphere of our budding homestead. But my homesteading goal isn’t just about animals and farm life. It’s also about the food that graces our table. More and more, I am endeavoring to create from scratch. It’s an empowering feeling to provide your family with home-cooked meals, knowing exactly what goes into them. There’s something therapeutic about kneading dough or stirring a pot of homemade soup. It might take a little more time, but the reward is well worth it.
There you have it – a sneak peek into my homesteading ambitions. As each day passes, I find myself more engrossed in this journey towards a wholesome and self-sustaining life.
