Fast forward a couple decades and I’m now in Texas “living the dream.” My husband grew up a city boy, but he’s a good sport and has embraced living on 5 acres in the country.
I call myself a “novice homesteader” because I’m learning along the way. Yes, I learned a lot watching my Granny and Grandad, but I don’t think you’ll ever truly “know it all” out here. That’s the beauty and the challenge of homesteading.
One thing I regret is not getting started before I bought my house in the country. You don’t have to wait until everything is “perfect” because you could be waiting a long time!
Even in the suburbs or an apartment, you can incorporate aspects of homesteading and self sufficiency in your life.
That is my main goal with The Novice Homestead — to share what I’ve learned along the way and to help others achieve their homestead dream — no matter where you are in that process.
Join me in bringing a little homestead into your life!
