I bounced through the first years of my life in a hippie gypsy wagon, hand-built by my father, wandering the back roads of the U.S., Canada and Mexico. My family eventually settled into a tiny cabin in the woods on property that was once inhabited by American Indians. I spent my days searching for arrowheads, teaching myself to sew on a treadle sewing machine and to bake in a wood-burning stove, with no running water, refrigeration, or electricity in our home.
My family lived frugally and early on, inspired by my parent's thriftiness and style, I gained a clever knack for thrifty creativity and turning ordinary objects into something useful. And I dreamed of the home I would create for my own family someday.
Now I'm married to my husband, Colin, we have four sweet boys, and my dreams have come true. Along the way, I co-founded The Farm Chicks Show with my best friend and former business partner, Teri. We went on to establish thefarmchicks.com/, and authored The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen. My next book, A Farm Chicks Christmas, will be released next year.
Teri has since retired from the business and I now run The Farm Chicks on my own. I talk about my life as an entrepreneur, wife, mom, author, and Contributing Editor for Country Living Magazine on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
I think of myself as the luckiest girl in the world, doing what I love day after day. I'm so happy to have you here and hope you'll visit often.
