A bit about me:
I'm a city dwelling, community minded gal with earthy farming sensibilities. I love libraries, dancing, neighborhoods, downtown farmer's markets and my husband's 5 minute walk to work. I also love composting, seasonal rhythms, making my own soap, hanging laundry and notions of homesteading.

I am a photographer, writer, gardener; happiest when creating, blogging or camping in the mountains of Maine with my family.

On a daily basis you'll find me homeschooling my kids, having an afternoon tea, cooking plant-based gluten free meals, sharing recipes, hosting friends, organizing and simplifying my family's life. While cleaning and running errands as little as possible.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
I cook 3 meals a day (no cold cereal around here!) most days of the week. Some meals are certainly better than others. Most are fairly simple (as much locally grown as possible) hearty vegan fare to feed our family of 5.

Here's some recent favorites:
Pumpkin bean casserole
Baked Apples with Cashew Cream Sauce
Currently reading:
My latest DIY project:
soaps, salves, skin lotions
