We are Daniel, Katie, River & Eliza Leverenz and we live in the wonderful land of East, TN. We live in a little cabin in the woods (I know…how idealistic), but really, we do. And we love it.
By day (and often by night as well) Dan is an Emergency Medicine Physician but his free time is almost entirely spent outdoors either hiking, working the land and farming, playing the guitar or chasing our kiddos around. Katie, by day (and also by night) is a mama, blogger, and serial entrepreneur. Her favorite things to do currently are take care of our chickens (all 40 of them), start new businesses (all 40 of them …..ok slight exaggeration) and play dinosaur tag with the kiddos.
Our goal in blogging is to bring a little bit of our farm and lifestyle to you. We hope that you find our posts inspiring and relatable. It’s our goal to raise our children in a way in which they understand where food comes from, and they know how to grow it. We hope that they will love and appreciate animals, give thanks for their lives and understand how they should be treated – even if they are being raised for consumption. We believe in living a “back to basics” lifestyle, which is ironically revolutionary in today’s world. We aren’t trying to be revolutionary or set a trend, we are just trying to live life as we believe it was intended to be lived and to experience life at it’s fullest.
We realize not everyone can live on 15 acres and have this lifestyle. This is OBVIOUSLY allowed! Our hope is that you can find inspiration to incorporate little things into your life that are a step in the “back to basics” direction, even if you do live in an apartment in the city. There is no judgment here. This is a safe place to learn and share.
Thanks for stopping by and joining us on this journey. We hope to provide you with some inspiration, and if nothing else, at least add a little humor to your life!
