About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Flowers that brighten my day!

We don't have many flowers around here, but the few we do have sure brighten my day!! All our flowers are out in the front yard...seeing as they would definitely be eaten if they were in the backyard.


  1. What is the name of the rose in the second picture?? We have 2 bushes of these that were here already and we haven't been able to for sure identify them.

    1. I sure wish I knew! Thet are very beautiful! They were here when we moved in and Im not sure what they are either.
