Finding beauty in our everyday life in the farmhouse; food from scratch, natural living and a handmade home.
Hello, I’m Lisa!
I am the wife of an amazingly supportive husband and mother of four kids, two girls and two boys.
I’m a small town Missouri native and country girl at heart. I lived in St. Louis for a year in college and found that city life isn’t for me.
I grew up on an Elk farm in Wentzville, Missouri and loved every minute of my childhood. I am the oldest of four girls, which was, and still is, always an adventure.
I can’t wait until we can move our little family to a farm on a gravel road, with chickens and goats. For now, I settle for our five backyard chickens and vegetable garden that takes up most of our yard.
I am a total health nut. At any given moment you will find at least two or three things fermenting on the counter in my kitchen. I love making sauerkraut, kefir and sourdough bread.
I love natural remedies, whole food, and have a cabinet stuffed full of essential oils and bulk herbs.
I have a passion for sewing and creating. If you locked me in my craft room for 24 hours I wouldn’t be the least bit sad about it!
A few fun facts about me:
I competed in the state track meet for long jump in high school.
I had my third child in the back of our van, at 75 MPH.
I am absolutely addicted to lemon lime seltzer water.
If it was socially acceptable to not wear shoes, I would be all in. I can still run across gravel, like a kid. My sister says I should write a book called “Barefoot on Boone”.
I was a gymnast as a kid and can still throw back handsprings, but I am super sore the next day when I do!
I spent Summer 2007 in Yellowstone National Park. The scenery was unbelievable but I couldn’t stand being away from home for so long.
