It will be a great way to organize my bookmarks and hopefully share some cool stuff that you may not have found otherwise. So here are some of my bookmarks this week: HarvestRight Freeze Dryer Why I love it: To…

Eureka Springs, Arkansas: Weekend Trip

On December 3, 2017

Last month Bobby and I visited the coolest little town in the middle of the Ozark Mountains: Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  Before visiting Eureka Springs, I thought places like this existed only in my dreams. It’s the most charming, artsy, rural town. There are spas on every corner, bed and breakfasts, and natural springs. This town is as remote as it…

On October 27, 2017

So many people tell me “I could never live in the country, I’d be so bored!” So, I thought it could be fun to compile a list of things that keep me from ever being bored. In fact, I’ve never been so busy with stuff to do. Here are some ideas for things to do when bored in a small…


Modern House Design in the Country

On September 18, 2017

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved modern architecture. You know how they say if you visualize something long enough, it will happen? When I look back at my Pinterest board while living in Chicago, all I pinned were modern homes in rural areas. So I totally think I’ve been subconsciously visualizing this for a long time. Take a look at…


Macrobiotic Vegan Soup for the Soul

On August 28, 2017

The other day I was feeling a little under the weather and made a big pot of this macrobiotic vegan soup. After having one bite, it was all my body craved, so I ate the entire pot throughout the day and woke up the next day feeling great again. It was like my body used this soup as a detox…

Kayaking in Lake of the Ozarks State Park

On July 15, 2017

One of the things that I miss most about living in the city is the high walk score. I used to walk everywhere! So, I thought what better way to get exercise out here than go on hikes and do fun outdoorsy stuff? I mean we are in an outdoor paradise, might as well enjoy it! This past weekend Bobby…

3 Ways Technology Can Disrupt Rural America

On June 19, 2017

You know how Hollywood always knows what’s trendy before we do? They romanticized the idea of living in cities and before we knew it every girl wanted to move to NYC to live out her own Sex and the City fantasy. Maybe it’s just the movies I’ve been watching, but I’ve noticed there seems to be a new reversal trend in…


How to Find (and get) Remote Work Online

On June 17, 2017

I feel like a lot of people want to work from home but they don’t know where to start. Or they think it’s not a viable option. They know some people have remote jobs, but they’re the lucky ones. Surely remote work is hard to find. Or is it? I can tell you, whether you have a college degree or…


Trip to the Mennonite Markets

On February 23, 2017

One of the things that I’ve loved about moving to the Ozarks is the abundance of Mennonite businesses throughout the area. I never really understood what they were about until I moved here but they are like the OG of the off grid movement. A lot of them settle in areas with good, fertile land with little to no building codes….
