Hi! My name is LeaDawn – welcome to my little corner of the internet. During the busy years of supporting my husband through Veterinary school, I started a private blog as an online journal. I have edited and shared some of those posts here. I continue blogging with the goal of motivating myself and others to live life more fully. My experiences are not super unique or amazing, but I hope through sharing my common struggles, thoughts, and experiences I can encourage others.
My husband and I dream of owning a few acres and some creatures one day, but for now we are focused on raising our 4 boys, paying off student loans, and learning ways to be more self- reliant. We get our taste of farm life from visiting Grandma and Grandpa’s farm as often as possible.
I grew up on a small hobby farm in Southern Idaho, and I love the simplicity of the country lifestyle. I hope to teach my children the principles of hard work and self reliance as we visit and help out on the farm. Grandma & Grandpa’s farm is 5 acres where they grow a vegetable garden and fruit trees, raise Dexter Cattle and chickens, and keep honey bees.
