hey there, I'm jen

You can usually find me playing in the dirt or hanging out in the barnyard with all the animals.  I’m all about keepin' it real and authentic- especially regarding my struggle with mental health. I hope sharing my journey of overcoming PTSD will help others who have lived through trauma. Homesteading has been a game changer in my recovery, and I hope this blog can encourage and inspire other trauma survivors to embrace a simpler lifestyle, close to nature with purpose and gratitude.
