Hi! So glad you’ve stopped by! I’m Brittany- a Minnesota native growing a family of five rowdy little boys and one new baby girl in the beautiful bluffs of western Wisconsin. I’m fluent in three languages: English, Toddler, and my first language- sarcasm. I generally make it through my days with coffee and Jesus. If it’s a really good day, I nap.

We decided our growing family needed a bit more space, so this suburban raised gal and her country-loving husband moved to four acres outside of town.

What’s in it for you?

If you enjoy watching people kill plants, burn meals, and struggle through raising kids, you might be in the right place.

I hope to bring a real-world perspective to the trials and tribulations of raising a large family on a small brand-new homestead with an even smaller budget.

Along the way, I want to provide you with tangible proof that it can be done and help you to succeed – whether your dream is raising your kids as a stay at home parent, bringing in a little extra income to grease the wheels a bit, or getting a bunch of chickens to eat your ticks. Ultimately, if you laugh while you’re here, I’ve done my job.

Thanks for reading, hope to see you around again soon!
