hey there, I'm jen

You can usually find me playing in the dirt or the barnyard, hugging all over my animals.  I’m all about keeping 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 and remind them they are not alone. 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 with purpose and gratitude.
