Creating • building • growing in 140 sq.ft wood shop. It teaches you to be more efficient. More minimal. More mindful. Taking it back to a simpler way of doing things is not a step backwards. • good morning! • Finishing some things up this week for a local Pop Up event @eastwestpopupshop july 29-aug.6 • Downtown Asheville, NC!
If you're into live storytelling, then you must check out @mothstories. The stories people tell will have you laughing, crying, gasping, wondering, and so much more (and they always have me trying to think of an interesting life story that I could tell if ever given the opportunity).
At two weeks old we put these birds out in the moveable chicken tractor! Letting them eat the bugs and grass. Raising them like how they did 100 years ago!
We are happy to share a portion of our day with you all! What are we doing with all this food we have been growing! • We talk about it in our latest YouTube video • Link is on our website 😊 We hope you have a good week!
You know the saying taking things day by day? Who has trouble doing that? 🙋♂️ I do! It is difficult because I want to do everything all at once. What is that? Why is that? I want to be all out, all in all the time! Sometimes it overwhelms me. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it a problem?How do you take things day by day? 😊 It's hot and I need to jump in a creek!
I went to my second Front Parlor Series yesterday at The Ale House in Troy—it's like a local version of @mothstories, where people share stories and try to crack the secrets of good storytelling in front of people. At the start of the event, only two storytellers had signed up. By the end of it, ten—including me!—shared stories. I honestly hadn't planned anything, and I was nervous AF when I bit the bullet and told the host I'd speak, but I'm soooo happy I did it. I rewarded myself with this @brownsbrewingco beer by the bridge afterward. Thank you @shaylyniris for giving me a story idea, and Sarah and Andrew for coming. ❤️💙💚 #frontparlorseries #themoth #mothstories #storytelling #theartofstorytelling #publicspeaking #doonethingeverydaythatscaresyou #trynewthings #summer17
Turnips for breakfast!? Heck yes!
Some mornings I listen to podcasts as I walk the dog. I can only fathom what my neighbors observed as I was walking the dog and laughing hysterically. I tried to stop myself from laughing out loud but it bubbled out of me with such ease. A great way to start the day-take a listen. #storytelling #laughter #morningroutine #mothstories #mothstoryslam #walkingthedog #seekingjoy #smile #crazyladywalkingdog
We been having some heavy short rain storms as of late. The tomatoes fell over! So i twined them up and now waiting for the sun to spring them back up! 🍅🌞🌱
There's something so special about listening to strangers' stories. We're each living in our own universe, and to hear someone speak about their experiences, uninterrupted, feels like a gift. That's why I love the Moth stories, and why I'm so excited to dive into this book. Happy 4th of July! 🎆 . . . . #bookworm #bookblog #allthesewonders #themoth #mothstories #storytelling #bookstagram #bookish #books #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #booknerd #igreads #igbooks #currentlyreading #reading

The Moth is sitting pretty back on my shelf. 50 more true stories told by extraordinary people, I had high expectations of this second book in the series, and it exceeded them. I have said it a hundred times and I'll say it again, buy it, read it, absorb it, share it. You won't regret it. ✔️📖✨

When we moved from SoCal to the mountains of NC. I think the hard part for me is not being afraid to fail. It's easy to say it's too hard, quit and move back home. But i think the experience and the journey is what we strive for. Not a finished product. By not being afraid to fail i think it guides us to live a more meaningful intentional life.

5 years ago I took my first chicken processing workshop @primalpastures Now we are doing it ourselves. Farm to table food. One of the reasons why we are here. To grow our own food. Processing 31 pasture raised meat birds in our backyard. Friends helping. Kids helping and all of us learning! If you help us you take a whole bird home!Raising good honest, clean, real food. • Our journey of eating clean, real food began 8 years ago after being diagnosed with cancer. It's not a fad diet. Not a some days we have cheat days diet. It has been 100% ALL IN way of life. All of that has led to learn exactly what's in our food and how to process it. That journey has brought us here. ALL IN. #sewtheland

Already half way through the year! This year seems more faster than last year. Some days I feel too tired of all these projects! Too much going on! But then I stop and remind myself why we left. I remember how i felt staring at a computer screen in my comfortable office job. I remember feeling something was telling me to get up and move. I don't want to ever forget that feeling. You have one life! GO!
One of the most straight out of a dream moments of my life has been telling my stories for @mothstories . The Moth brings people to us that open our hearts in a way so exquisite it almost hurts. The pain is from feeling one another's beauty and how delicate, strong, incredibly unpredictable our time here is. Thank you for 20 yrs, #themoth #mothstories
Everything that we are doing is for you. As we continue to do more youtube videos I am realizing that it's all for her. As the years move and we all get older I want her to look at these moving pictures and remember. Making mud pies, chasing chickens, growing food and remember how we started a life changing journey to follow our dreams as a family. Keep moving. • • • • • • #mothstories #sewtheland

These past few weeks have been a struggle. Wondering what I'm doing, where I'm going, if I'm doing what's right. Relying on blind faith and trusting that the Universe has my back can be challenging. So when I got this book in the mail (it was sent randomly, I didn't pay for it or ask for it), my heart fluttered. Stories about facing the unknown; stories about risk and courage. If that's not magic. Thank you, Universe. 💕✨💕✨
