Here are some questions I get asked quite a bit. If you have a question, please feel free to ask!
Why do you address your readers as “Lovelies”?
It is just a name I give everyone! I call my husband and my son “Love” and my friends “Lovelies”. A blog/website is personal so you are not just my readers.
Where do you live?
3 bedroom home that is about 2500 sq.ft. just north of Dallas, Texas. For now. We have dreams of owning acreage in East Texas in the country and living off grid.
What do you do for a living?
I work full-time from home in healthcare. My husband drives a BIG truck.
What religion are you? You mention God in a few of your posts.
My family is Christian.
It sounds like you make great money. Why do you live so frugal?
Great question! Nothing in life is guaranteed for one thing. When I met my husband, he was in the oilfield which as you know has taken a downturn. Driving truck is based on work given. So income is not guaranteed and pretty much unbudgetable. I base a lot of our home and budget on just my income. He can be out of work at any time. Living frugally is also preparing us for another round of parenthood as we are adopting. We work to live not live to work. This all started after I was a single mother for many years on my income only. I had to get down and dirty and very creative. I use the same principles I used then, now. It is a lifestyle.
Where did you learn what you do?
Honestly, You Tube! It is a wealth of knowledge. Don’t get me wrong, not everything I learned was off You Tube, I also follow other Word Press bloggers who have similar interests. Homesteading is more than a lifestyle though, it is a community. I love to learn!
To inspire others. Being a woman is HARD and having a husband who is only home once a month is even harder. I do a lot to make my life easier. By going back to basics, I can focus more on my family and having quality time when my husband is home. Our long term goal is to live in the country, so we are preparing for what lies ahead.
