This is a place where I will share with you topics from birth to the time when we all return to the Earth and anything in between. I hope to focus on sustainable living, everyday life and taking care of my family and the Earth. There will be posts about crafting, with and without the kids, making good and healthy choices and learning to become more self sufficient. I look forward to connecting and learning from those with whom I have a shared interest.


Thank you for checking out my site! My name is Melissa, and I am a wife to my wonderful husband and the mother of 4 young children. We live on a small acreage in the province of Manitoba in Canada and survive the 7 months of winter to enjoy the 2 months of summer we get here (the other months are usually less drastic in their temperatures). We have a few dogs, ducks and horses but I'm always hoping today will be the day my husband agrees to more animals!
