Hi! My name is Tracy, It is nearly impossible for me to write a short summary or blog post, but I’ll try to keep this short. I’m a quiet person, but I make up for it in written words!
I’m a mama, wife, farmer, aromatherapy student, Buddhist, chicken, veggie and herb farmer, cook, baker, avid reader and a wide variety of music lover. I am mildly disabled and have a rare, intensely painful nerve disorder called Geniculate Neuralgia. It feels like an invisible hand holding an ice pick is attacking my right ear every minute of the day.
I am writing this blog because I have been inspired by so many wonderful people and recently, my husband, who have started blogs. I’m not an expert at any one thing, but I have lived a unique life, and I want to share the good, useful and fun parts of it with you. I hope one day to get my certificate or degree in aromatherapy. I’ll share what I’ve learned about essential oils with you, and I hope to be part of the vibrant online community of people writing about natural living, cooking from scratch, eliminating pesticides and GMO’s from our diets, choosing a life of health and happiness despite difficult circumstances instead of depression and sadness. Don’t get me wrong- I have spent a long time being depressed, anxious and having panic attacks, but I try each day to be mindful of the present moment rather than focus on the times that my life was one of fear and regret. I choose each day to make my world and our little farm the best it can be. We don’t have a lot of money, but we do have ideas, hope for the future, a desire not just to improve our lives, but also the lives of our friends, family and neighbors and an endless supply of love! This is an open space for all – I do have my own opinions and preferences, but I do not judge others and I hope this will become a place where all can speak their minds, share and find not only new ideas for homemade goods, but also the company of like-minded folks. Thanks for visiting! I hope you’ll follow along as my husband and our continue to build our little farm and our lives from scratch!
