Hey there friend, I´m Sam

Hey there, friend! I’m Sam: a mom, wife, home decor enthusiast, and newfound lover of modern minimalism with a hint of wannabe homesteader thrown in there. My primary role in life is homeschooling my two amazing boys, and even though it can get hectic, I absolutely adore it. Our life is a beautiful whirlwind, and this blog is all about finding balance and inentionality amidst the chaos.

I’m on a journey to inspire and empower other women who, like me, are doing their best to keep it all together. I never want anyone to feel like they aren’t “enough” while trying to do right by their family. My personal focus is on making better choices for my family, even if perfection isn’t always within reach (I’m an Enneagram One, so the perfection thing is a legitimate struggle).

The “crunchy” life and love for blogging started when my littles started having pretty severe skin issues while using regular disposable diapers. I switched to cloth, which led me down the path of crafting my own cleaning products and embracing essential oils. From there I moved to homemade baby food, DIY nut milks, and more. I’ve dabbled in it all, and my passion for holistic living keeps growing.

Living intentionally is my motto, whether it’s nourishing our bodies, spending quality time with our kids, or nurturing our faith. Here in this space, I hope we can engage in meaningful conversations and support one another in our goals. There’s a quote I’ve come to love: “Live the life you choose – not one you settle for.” It’s a constant reminder to focus on what truly matters and follow our calling.

 In the rush of modern living, it’s easy to forget the profound wisdom that our grandmothers and generations before us held close to their hearts. They possessed a treasure trove of knowledge about home, health, and happiness – insights that have often been buried beneath the hustle and bustle of contemporary life.

Through this blog, I am thrilled to celebrate the skills and traditions that have sustained families for generations. Join me as we bake bread from scratch, create cozy, inviting spaces in our homes, and rediscover the healing power of natural remedies. Let’s cherish the beauty of handcrafted items and the joy of preserving our own harvests, just as our grandmothers did.

The Bible’s wisdom in 1 Peter 4:10 inspires me to use my gifts to serve others, be it with family, friends, at church, or even with strangers. And that’s what I’m here to share – how we can live intentionally in our beautiful homes, care for the bodies God has given us, and create a life that embraces all of His blessings.

Besides being a homeschool mama, I freelance as a web and lighting designer, and I run a small business making personalized blankets for little ones. I also lend a hand to my husband’s church/media consulting business. My days are filled with a delightful blend of everything, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So, please, make yourself at home here. Introduce yourself in the comments, and don’t hesitate to ask questions or share your thoughts on any posts. Conversation is the heart of community, and I’m always eager to learn and grow alongside each of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this journey with me!
