Next summer will be 9 years since we left home. We were 18 and 19 years old, newly married, and completely oblivious to what life really was. We thought we knew it all and good lord, were we wrong. We spent years grasping for materials, waiting for the next “thing”. If you had told me back then that we’d one day be (willingly) living in Alaska with a wood stove for heat, raising/butchering chickens, gardening, canning, hunting for all our meat, and beekeeping for honey, dreaming of adding more and more to have a real homestead..I would’ve without a doubt told you you were insane. You see, my family grew up this way. This is how they were raised and my whole life I had to listen to my grandma talk about her “mama” on the “homestead” up on the mountain. Stories were passed, recipes were shared, knowledge of self sustaining was abundant, and my entire childhood/teenage years I completely ignored it all..actually annoyed with it usually. Yet it all comes full circle doesn’t it? Because I would love to go back and hear those stories again, really listening. I would love to take in every piece of knowledge my grandma has ingrained in her brain..the knowledge passed down from every woman in her family for centuries. If only we could be born with the wisdom of our elders. If only we could let go of our selfishness as teenagers and just listen to the heritage and stories that are whispers around us for all those years. If only. But, there are no take backs, so we can only move forward and make the best of what we’re given. It’s all trial and error, and we have no clue what we’re doing most of the time, but without a doubt I have never been happier. Who knew that cleaning chicken poop, bringing in wood when it’s 15 degrees, and boiling old chicken bones to make broth could make a person so happy? Life is strange, so strange.
Working on the hammies. Hamstrings are one of my favorite muscle groups to stretch, how about you?

Someone gave me this quote. Sabe niya akmang akma daw sa akin. Good morning indeed. ☕ #wisdom #brainfood
As you are. The good, the bad and the ugly. The truth is it's all good--the bad and the ugly too. You are perfect as you are. Now. And Now. And Now. And Then. And on and on.... #mondaymotivation #qotd
