“There are so many kinds of beauty and I try to relish any form of it whenever I can. But there is none like the living, breathing, ever changing beauty of this earth. Spring is here! Throw open the windows! It's time for mud and seedlings, it's time for sunscreen and working in the soil. I can't imagine a life under flourescent hums, drinking bottled water in my cubicle. I'm grateful for the long road I had to navigate to get here, because now…I'm here.” – @orphans_cookbook | We want to share your #HappyHomesteading stories, so go ahead and use the hashtag for a chance to get featured!
