Welcome to Heart’s Content, my little homemaking blog, focusing on being happy at home without spending a lot of money. I think everyone’s home can be productive and happy, and that getting there usually involves working a little harder and buying a little less.
What I Write About:
Sometimes I write about the philosophical side of homemaking (like enjoying your work and resisting materialism). Sometimes I write more about specifics like weeding the garden or cleaning your kitchen). All of my posts are, at heart, about contentment for the homemaker.
I also like to share a recipe every week. My husband is the pickiest eater ever, so the recipes I share are actually very good. He has no problem telling me something is bad, or just okay, and should not be made again!
Every recipe I post is a from scratch, normal food. Nothing revolutionary, just good things that your family will like but that will probably not impress anyone with exotic tastes.
Me, My House, and My Garden:
I live with my husband and three daughters on a hobby farm in Virginia. We have a good sized garden, chickens, barn cats, plenty of woods and fields.
We built our house in October 2016, using the house plan Steamer Point by John Tee.
I am a Catholic convert. I don’t write much about that here because I am still learning and don’t really feel qualified to share anything other than my questions.
I love getting comments and respond to each one.
My email is email@example.com, and I would love to hear from you!
Oh and if you want to use any of my pictures that is fine with me. If you do I would be so glad if you would link back so I can see them.
Thanks for stopping by! Please sign up to follow via email if you would stay in touch!
