We moved to the Little Green House in 2002, before the children were born. It is small, frustratingly so at times, but has taught us about efficient use of space, family connection, and simplifying possessions. Our greatest joys come not from the things inside the house, but our experiences and education that have taken place during our tenure here. There is charm in the 1875 house, and the 1.3 acres of garden, woods, and yard that surround it. There is beauty in the life we have built here, connected to the land and one another.

Our goal is to live close to the Earth, connected to one another, learning skills, building resilience, and nourishing ourselves with nature connection, plants, yoga, Wise Woman Healing ways, and community. And have a whole lotta fun doing it.

This blog is a documentary journal of our lives, our experiences, and our education.
