Hi there! I’m a mom to three beautiful girls, a wife to a wonderful husband, and one half of the crazy that brought 1689 Homestead to life. I’m passionate that a happy, healthy lifestyle doesn’t require “designer” essential oils, huge budgets, or the next big thing. Frugality, practicality, and handmade happiness live here. Welcome! Follow me on Instagram! Make sure you stop by the Shop to see my collection of handmade, from-scratch soaps!
