My Story

This is my third blog I think that I have started.  I decided to start this one because I would like to know more about myself.  I will be writing about my life, all parts of it... Orthodox, Work, Homestead... Just whatever I want to write really.  I guess that's why a lot of folks write blogs right?  Maybe others feel they have something to add to the world.  I have a story, and I am not sure how many people will want to read it but I do plan on writing about my story in the best way that I know how.  If you are interested then, yay!

My name is Cassie, I grew up in Virginia in a family of four.  I love my family, and enjoy being around them whenever I get a chance.  The chances are farther apart than I would like, but they say absence makes the heart grow fonder.  I hope this is the case.  Anyways, I moved to Wisconsin in my early twenties and married my husband, we've bounced over to Washington state for a little while, now back in Wisconsin for the last four years... and now we are moving back to Washington.  We are going to follow a dream of ours onto a homestead, so hopefully we can help the world by living a more sustainable existence as well as teach others to do the same.

We have two sons who are waiting and praying for us in heaven.  We still struggle from time to time with our grief for them but we are praying and working on that too. In 2012 we joined the Orthodox church and that has drastically changed things for us, especially in how we view the world and our children, and well just everything.

I just put my notice in at my job and am working on how I should declutter.  I have a problem with loving and keeping things, and really the question is "why?" and mostly all I can think of is that I just love a lot of the things that I own.  So my next month or so will be focused on purging belongings so we can live in our tiny house or yurt, or whatever we end up building.  That's the other thing is that we are working on buying some property now.

Well that's it for now... bird is taking off to fly and enjoy the day.
