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.

Peach and her babies

We have been ridiculously busy around here!! It has been crazy but so fun!!
Although we have been busy and scrambling all over the place, these precious little goats just love to relax...

and snuggle...

and sleep!
That is, when they aren't too busy eating!!


  1. I just found your blog and love it! I was wondering if you have any posts here that show what your yard looks like from an aerial view. I'm trying to picture your yard. We too have a 1/4 acre city lot and I can't figure out how you can have space for all that you have. Please share!
