I’m so honored that you would take the time out of your busy day to check out my page! This blog has been a long time in the making. Since my earlier years, I’ve always had a passion for writing. It’s a way that my (secretly) introverted self has been able to express the thoughts and ideas that too often play quite loudly in my mind. Not to worry… like Peter Pan, they’re mostly happy thoughts! I feel called to share my daily findings and inspiration with those of you who could benefit from my trial and error, and even those of you who are just here to be entertained! I welcome you all the same with open arms and a happy heart!
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Brooke Lane. I was born and raised in eastern North Carolina and feel so blessed to be able to call this great state my home. I’m married to a wonderful man named Robert, who is my best friend and closest confidante. We have a bubbly little girl named Raygan, who is full of spunk and brings joy to even the darkest of days! As of this moment, we are the loving owners of a dog named Hayven, a cat named Belle and 6 chickens. (Fern, Ivy, Clover, Marigold, Sunflower and Dandelion, in case you were wondering.)
Robert is a hard working, (and award winning, might I add) real estate agent in our local area. With a grateful heart, I am blessed to be a stay at home mom. Now, I know what you’re thinking… You’re picturing me, in pajama pants, messy bun, snacks everywhere, may or may not be wearing supportive under garments (ick!) while typing up this excerpt.. You know, “stay at home mom” style. And let me tell ya, you’re actually right. It’s currently summer break and hotter than Hades outside, so I’m just here trying to conserve energy for my busy season. The typical daily schedule of this “stay at home mom” and all of the behind the scenes fun, is a post for another day!
So finally, what the heck is this blog even about?? Glad you asked. In following along, you will explore our family’s simplistic lifestyle and gain daily inspiration through our gracious attempts at homemaking, homeschooling and homesteading. Notice the word, attempts. I am by no means an expert on any of these topics! I just happen to be a homemaker, who homeschools and embraces the homesteading way of life. My goal is to simply share the experiences that I have already delved into and to explore along side of you those that are yet to come! So if you’re easily amused (like me) by timeless home decor, DIY, cleaning and organizing tips and tricks, simple healthy recipes, homeschool curriculum, experiments, hacks, backyard homesteading and the general knowledge (and probably a bit of humor) of how to make your home a haven… then you’re in the right place friend!
