A Suburban Mama living rural, and LOVING it!
Introduction
I am a wife, mother, farmer, and blogger.  My hubby and I are building our little rural mountain homestead on acreage just outside Sequoia National Park.  We have chickens, dogs, honey bees, and a small herd of nigerian dwarf dairy goats.  We plan to raise cattle soon, and maybe even a pasture pig or two.  I like to keep BUSY.  I am addicted to learning new skills and hobbies.  I am the proud daughter of a Vietnam Veteran, and I love my country.  
Bragging rights
My son is awesome! My hubby can make or do almost anything. I love my life.
