Homesteading freedom

Rose Nell and Anna with sunflowers

I buy my freedom with my frugality.
                        --- Vicki Robin

The homesteading dream is all about freedom.  The homesteading life is all about figuring out what to do with that freedom.

Mark is a great one for reminding me to fill my life with what is truly important --- family, friends, good books, long baths, walking in the woods, and petting Huckleberry.  Your list may vary.

Follow your bliss.
                        --- Joseph Campbell
