I'm Hannah and I'm thankful you're here.
I hate writing these things about myself but feel obligated. Perhaps that should be number one.
1.) I sometimes do things just because I feel obligated, and I don't want to let anyone down. I trembled saying "no" to baking bread for a chili sale at church. But I said it. Progress.
2.) I have conflict-avoidance issues God is working out of me.
3.) I see beauty everywhere. I notice the light and line and color in everything.
4.) We are a gluten free family and have been so for over a year since discovering my husband is severely allergic to gluten.
5.) We homeschool our kids and think it is an awesome way of life. However, as much as I like to categorize things, we don't fit into any homeschool peg-holes. We're somewhere out in the field of eclectic, I believe, with a dash of classic and a pinch of unschooling thrown in for good measure. See, I tried to categorize the uncategorizable....
6.) I love God and have a love/hate relationship with His workings in my life lately.
I love that He has the best in mind for me; I hate the discomfort that often comes hand-in-hand as He gets rid of my junk.
7.) I am aiming for honest and transparent in my bloggy words, hoping to add in grace and encouragement too.
8.) My husband holds office/position in our church and so anything I say/do/write that is stupid or controversial is not a reflection of his work with the church.
9.) I love list making.
10.) We live in a 230 yr old farmhouse on two acres and traumatize our nice neighbors with our mini farming ventures.
11.) We are praying for a real farm.
With a barn.
Where the pig won't stare down the neighbors through their glass door as they eat dinner.
And we won't be the house where cars slow down and fingers point.
And the dog warden won't be called on our chickens.
12.) I like just about anything crafty. And books - we all love books.
13.) I'm retired from nursing to be a mama, my husband Sean is a local business owner. My nursing background and experiences make me anti-conventional medicine in many ways. I am very thankful for conventional medicine intervening and saving our son Aiden's life and his wonky kidneys. Our kids are selectively vaccinated, we use natural remedies/preventative care to keep our family healthy, and I have been blessed to be able to birth our last two babies at home. I am very thankful for life and know it is so much more than I deserve.
14.) I get sick of making lists sometimes, which is why I squished a lot into number thirteen.
Any questions, just ask away. And have fun browsing!
