One Country Girl’s Journey

My name is Danielle. I am a mom of 4 kids born over a 5 year span. We have 2 boys and 2 girls. Currently one toddler, two preschoolers, and one school aged. I’m married to my high school sweetheart of 12 years. We live quite a {blessed} life. We are currently living in the rural part of a town where my husband works. Summers and each weekend, we travel the hour and a half drive to our family farm to…farm. There we are raising beef cattle and make hay in the summer. I grow produce to can, freeze, and sell. I am a “modern” mom in many ways but I am also very “old fashioned” in most ways. I hunt a variety of wild game and process our own meat. We do a lot of home made everything; eating as “clean” and home cooked as we can though with traveling, drive through food happens here and there.

Hubby is working on his Master’s degree. I’m slowly working on my Bachelor’s degree in wildlife sciences.

We often get asked how we balance it all. My usual reply is “We just do.”  This blog is for me to share my endeavors as a young mom; determined to take on the world; raising kids who are not assholes but are respectful and compassionate; dreaming of working with wildlife and conservation of natural resources; sharing tips on how we “do it all”. Our life is not easy by any means. It’s messy and chaotic. It takes a lot of work, sweat, love, and determination. It also takes a lot of balance, understanding, and a few tears but in the end I’m confident it’ll all work out one way or another.

You’ll find recipes, produce growing and preserving tips (Disclaimer: these are OLD FASHIONED tips my family have used since way back when so they don’t always align with the FDA “rules” of today), some sewing and crocheting, and overall homemaking tips. MOST of this blog is just sharing my adventures though since I love to write and feel that this is a good outlet to share our lifestyle.
