Our Family

My husband and I began dating in 2014 and were married in 2017. Fun fact, we got married one month after our engagement! We were both full time students and part time employees but somehow made it work.

We began our debt free journey almost immediately and worked on paying off student loans. We have paid off over $75,000 in student loans and car debt. We are not done yet but are working diligently on consumer debt. 

In 2018 my husband Keith and I purchased a starter home in town. We spent three years in town learning the basics of cooking, DIY, and renovating. 

Life got rocky in 2019 when we were expecting our first baby. At 14 weeks along, we lost the baby after a missed miscarriage. This is a topic that is dear to my heart. 

In 2020 we had our first baby, a baby girl named Ila Dawn. She is such a light in our lives and has influenced our journey. You will see her from time to time on the blog because she is momma’s girl and with me always!

We have just sold our first home that we bought in 2018 and moved to the country to be with family and grow our farm dreams. 

While it is not much a farm yet, we have 16 acres owned by family. On the property we have two ponds, a smaller barn and a larger barn. Read about building our farmhouse here and creating our farm, food, family and this simple life of ours.
