Made a solo Target run before day two of the @homesteadersofamerica conference and look who I ran into! I thanked Justin and Rebekah (Abundant Permaculture) for making homesteading with kids look so accessible, we discussed the rather unfair Atlantic ariticle on homesteading I posted on Fb Thursday, and we watched a 2001 SNL Safari Planet skit on a goat with devil eyes 🤣 because goats are funny and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Love attending this conference with existing friends and to make new like-minded friends who value sustainable food sourcing and a slower pace of life. 💕 #goats #abundantpermaculture #homesteadersofamericaconference #snlskit #homesteadingwithkids #sfumatofarm
Had a blast at our Elderberry Brew last night! 🧙♀️✨🌿⚗️❤️We talked all things immune support and made Thieves roller bottles and Elderberry syrup. Did you know you don’t have to pay $12 for a 4 ounce bottle of elderberry syrup?! Make a big batch for a fraction of the cost. Let me know if you want me to help you have your own elderberry brew class or if you are faraway, I’m happy to share my handout/recipe via email! Thank you @rsgmclean for hosting and giving an awesome testimony about the power of diet and clean living to heal. Love you, friend! #elderberrysyrup #diy #immunesupport #healthyliving #doubledoubleboilandtrouble
After we walked Q to the door, the school librarian told us “happy national walk to school day”! Apparently that’s a thing! Get out for a walk today, people. Happy hump day! #nationalwalktoschoolday #fakeholiday 🤷🏻♀️🎉
Not so Fun fact: billy goats pee on their own faces when...excited...which is often. (This is why they stink and apparently it’s really alluring to the ladies) If you don’t believe me I’ll put a picture in the comments... Related: we have decided to part ways with Sir Applejack the pony and Beauregard the Billy goat in order to have more room to rotationally graze our female goats as well as our chickens. We still want to breed goats but can rent a billy when the time comes instead of having just two animals in our “bro paddock.” Once again demonstrating how dispensable male animals are on a farm. If you know anyone in Virginia interested in a very friendly billy goat sire or a five year old pony, please let me know!
I’m running low on my precious stash of Elderberry syrup and Teddy already has the sniffles so I need to up our intake and do ALL THE HEALTHY THINGS! Come to my bestie Rachels house next Wednesday 10/10 at 7pm for an ELDERBERRY BREW (where’s my witches hat 🧙♀️?! 🤣)! We will brew elderberry syrup, talk winter wellness, and make an immunity roller with the best essential oils ever! Why elderberry syrup? The Sambucus Elderberry is high in vitamins A + B + C. It naturally stimulates the immune system and it’s one of the most antiviral herbs you can get. It has very high flavonoids, powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory + immune system benefits. Research has shown that elderberry syrup can lessen the severity and length of the flu. Praise! We will chat more on Wednesday, but know that making your own with local honey is better AND cheaper than buying it at a store. 💥 Sources: Https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc4848651 Https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/15080016 The cost is $12 to cover supplies and hold your spot. Just PayPal me firstname.lastname@example.org the $12 and I’ll send you the address. I only have enough supplies for 16 people to get 8ounces each of elderberry syrup and an immunity roller. Let me know stat! If you can't make it, but want the goods, I can still make you some and you can pick it up later. 👍
Posting the entire last page of The Road Back to You because it was so fanflippingtastic! I’m pretty sure I’m a 3w2 - what’s your ENNEAGRAM number? #enneagram #roadbacktoyou #introspection #personalitytests #godisgood
A ☀️ day on a playground. ❤️ #girlscandoanything #siblings #teddylaine #gabriellincolnathayde
Throwback about a year ago for #nationaldaughterday. My #TeddyLaine 💕 I’ll always have her back and hopefully she will always have mine! 💕 Losing my mama puts all the petty mother/daughter stuff in perspective. Next time you exhale with annoyance over your mother nagging you or get fed up with her failings as a mother/human, know that those are some of the things you’ll miss the most when she is gone and that you would do anything to have them back. 💕 Go forth and celebrate this silly made up holiday by calling your mama. 💕 #motherlessdaughters
Sharing my heart behind why we homestead and run a Young Living business in my instastories. Unnecessary pain and suffering can and should be avoided (thank you yoga sutras!). The good news is that lots of good can come from simply cleaning up your diet and the products in your home ❤️. I would love to help.
