Today is a day that I wasn’t sure would ever come. Ever since I was a little girl I would write in my journal about wanting to be a writer someday and to be able to write a book that would make a difference in someone’s life. I spent my high school years writing poetry, being involved in creative writing contests, and hoping that someday my dream would come true.
But then came college, and marriage, and babies and I wasn’t sure where my path would take me….and then it happened….
Last summer I signed with Gallery Books to publish my first print book and I’m so excited to share today that “Little House Living: A Make Your Own Guide to a Frugal, Simple, and Self Sufficient Life” is done and available for pre-order! (The title is set to be released on October 20th.)
It’s been a crazy year. Writing and photographing a book was something I’d always dreamed about but I really had no idea what the process would be like and how much work it would really take! I’ve spent hours, and days, and weeks, and months putting this book together just for you, and I think you are going to love it.
The book features over 200 recipes including: DIY Body and Beauty Recipes (like a recipe for Eczema Cream), DIY Kids and Pets Recipes (like how to make your own watercolors!), Household Recipes (like how to make your own furniture polish), and a huge Make Ahead Mix Section (with recipes like Onion Soup Mix, All Purpose Baking Mix and more), plus SO much more including a meal planning with homemade mixes section and a HUGE appendix with how to make the most of pretty much everything that you have!
I’ve put my heart and soul into every section of this book and not only is it filled with all of these helpful recipes and tutorials but it’s also filled with inspiration, lifestyle tips, and a glimpse into our simple life here on our farmstead. I really hope you enjoy the book, find it useful, and are inspired to make the most with what you have in your own life!
