Welcome, friends! My name is Kaylee, and I invite you to pull up a seat and join me; sometimes, we all need a few encouraging words from a friend in this world.
I couldn’t think of a better first "welcome" blog than to bare my heart and share the unknowingly embarked journey of my homestead—a journey that is healing me.
With every skill learned from the past, it feels like a stitch, mending a piece of ourselves we might have thought was broken. It's a journey of discovery where each 'new' old skill brings a sense of wholeness. But here's the beautiful truth—we aren't broken; we simply need to grant ourselves permission not to believe we are!
Welcome to a place where the act of learning forgotten crafts feels like a healing balm. Here, amidst the embrace of nature, we connect with the wisdom of herbalism, understanding the nurturing power of plants. Foraging becomes more than just gathering sustenance; it's a lesson in patience and gratitude, discovering treasures in the wild.
Beekeeping, with its gentle hum, teaches us harmony and symbiosis with these tiny yet wondrous creatures. Homemaking transforms into a symphony of creating a sanctuary—a space that echoes comfort, warmth, and love. Gardening, beyond nurturing plants, nurtures our souls, reminding us of the cycles of life and growth.
In this space, we call our homestead, the pursuit of 'old' wisdom isn't just about the past; it's a therapeutic journey to embracing who we truly are. It's a reminder that healing isn't always about fixing what's broken, but about rediscovering and celebrating our inherent completeness.
I am thankful for the wisdom I have received and acknowledge the guidance from God in every seed sown, every creature cared for, and every lesson learned. It is His grace that blesses this journey, lighting the path toward understanding and unity with nature's rhythms.
So, come along and join me on this journey of rediscovery. Let's learn, grow, and mend those pieces we thought were missing, not because we're broken, but because there's beauty in embracing every facet of our unique selves.
Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and learn something old-
