Little House Living Contributors
Over the years Little House Living has gained so many new fans and followers I've had a hard time keeping up with posting all the information that's been asked for, that's where our contributors come in! Contributors are passionate about the core values that the Little House Living website was built on and they will help us stay informed with the best recipe, simple living ideas, frugal tips, and more! Of course, you can learn more about me, Merissa, here on the About Me page.
Hello...my name is Julie. On this site, I am better known as "Merissa's Mom". I am a Christian wife and mother of four children. I have been blessed that I am able to stay home with my kids and am currently teaching my youngest two in my 15th year of homeschooling. I believe that writing is a God given gift. Mine was passed down from my mother and is carried on in Merissa. I love to write about things that I enjoy in my everyday life: cooking, canning, raising a vegetable and herb garden, and much more. I enjoy helping others get started and maintaining a frugal, but happy lifestyle, utilizing what your have over what you "wish" you had.
Hey! My name is Miranda or you might know me better as Merissa's sister. I am a crazy animal lady and could talk for hours about my crazy critters! I am graduating in May 2014 with a degree in Animal Husbandry. I married my wonderful husband last year and we are always looking for ways to live healthy and affordable lives! Even though I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible, I still like to crochet, embroidering, baking, and cooking!
Hello! My name is Andrea and I try to find ways to balance my work with my home life, while striving to be a great mom to my 2-year-old daughter. I married my tall and handsome husband 5 years ago, and I've discovered my true passion lies in cooking with real, healthy ingredients, growing fresh produce for my family, and eliminating toxic chemicals from my home and beauty products. My other hobbies include photography, reading, organizing, blogging, and spending time with my family.
As I try out new homemade beauty products, real-food recipes, and natural health remedies, I share them on my blog, Homemade for Elle.
I am a homemaker living in Maine with my husband and daughter, and our little family is on a journey to becoming as self-sufficient as possible. We currently keep chickens for eggs, maintain a stockpile, and have a modest garden in the growing season. I am also what you might call obsessed with making things from scratch. From bread and lotion to scarves and curtains, I feel that most things in life are simply better when they are homemade.
I am an introverted chocoholic with a great love for the WWII/Post-war era. Big band music (Glenn Miller, please), black and white movies (The Big Sleep, anyone?), and Margaret Anderson (Father always did Know Best)- I love it all! I am an avid reader who will take the classics over modern literature any day. I have traveled to Scotland, England, Ireland, and Italy, and hope to visit Puerto Rico, where my father grew up. I also love coffee, used book stores, orchids, and fog. You can find me blogging at Grace and Gusto.
I'm Dominique Burleson. Young mommy to a little boy and girl (with number 3 on the way!) who totally rock my world. I'm married to a fantastic, musically inclined red head, who has swept me off of my feet for 5 years. We live in a small town outside of Charlotte, NC-but our hearts long to move to the mountains.
My life consists of trying to be the best homemaker ever! Couponing (I teach at the local college!), organizing, writing, reading, and trying to break the bonds of debt with learning to be frugal are my favorite things to be involved with. I also love making this house a home. A place where my kids feel safe, and where they can learn and grow. I can't imagine doing anything else with my life! I thank God each day for such an opportunity! You can find me blogging at Barefoot in the Kitchen.
I'm Erin and I'm a nurse, a blogger, an LHL Contributor, and a childhood friend of Merissa. Me and my husband are newlyweds who love adventures, crafting, cooking, reading, and living off what we have. Together we keep our own blog called Mr. & Mrs. Toews (pronounced "taves" as in "caves").
Recently me and my husband moved from the big city on the East Coast back home to the Midwest to be closer to family and friends. With this big change comes: new jobs, a new budget, a new place to live, a new routine, and a fresh start. As I put my new home together, a big emphasis will be placed on the theme: "Frugality."
On my own blog, you will find stories of our adventures, favorite recipes, home videos, interesting finds from different websites, and DIY & craft ideas.
I'm Sarah White, Owner of Mindfully Frugal Mom, and I believe passionately that eating natural foods does not have to break the bank. I devotes my time to creating a healthy lifestyle for my family while saving money. In my limited spare time I can be found having dance parties to musical theater with her 2 preschoolers.
