About Me

I'm Melissa.
I'm 27 years old, married to Tyler, a basketball lover with a new found love of animal husbandry.
We have a son, Mason,  who is 3.5.  He enjoys books, trains, eating snacks, dinosaurs, and playing outside.  Oh, and he's pretty cute, too. We also have identical twin girls that are almost 2, Elliot and Finnley.
They are busy busy busy and keep us on our feet.

I started my married life, teaching 7-12 band, choir, and music for one year before becoming a stay-at-home-mom, which is what I've always wanted to do.  We now live in Iowa again, woo hoo! After becoming parents, we started to become more conscious and proactive of our eco-footprint and many many other things. Earlier this spring we began our homesteading journey to live a more sustainable and self reliable life, although we are taking it one baby step at a time!
