The Journey Begins

Thank you for joining us as we embark on this journey of sharing with you what we love!  We are a family of 3, soon to be a family of 4 who live on a 1/4 acre in an urban setting of the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  We strive to be as self-sufficient as we possibly can by growing as much of our own food we can, preparing homemade meals and recipes from scratch, making or building our own instead of buying from a store (DIY), and living as frugal as we possibly can.  We accomplish all of this, while working to become a debt free household on a single income and doing what we can to earn extra money by way of handmade businesses and selling plant starts.  Our ultimate goal is to save enough money so that we can relocate to the Big Island of Hawaii and build our dream home.  We would like to share what has been successful for us so that others like yourself may prosper and live your lives to the fullest.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
