A New Adventure

Wow! It's been a long time since I posted last. I originally started this blog as a sort of online journal of our family life and my thoughts as a wife, mother, friend, midwifery student and human. Over the past few months, as I have felt my load become too heavy to bear, I have eliminated many things in my life that I was feeling pressure from. Simplifying. This blog was one of those things. I am a perfectionist, not a good quality applied to any sort of art form, and maintaining this blog became a chore instead of a source of joy.

Lately, though, I have been realizing that I take way too many things in my life too seriously, and I am not having the fun I long to have as a wife and mother. So I am back here again, renewed, and I plan to use this space as a fun place I can escape to and post my musings and adventures.

Our goal as a family has always been to move more and more towards a natural life, as we believe humans were intended to live. Our biggest dream of having a small homestead may soon be coming true, and we are ecstatic! I would love to document this exciting time for our faded memories in the future.

In honor of our new venture, I have renamed our blog to identify with our endeavor's name:

Tangled Oak Roots Farm

Look for our very first giveaway soon.
