As a child, I always dreamed I would marry a practical, outdoor man and that I would be surrounded by animals, children and land.
Fast forward to present day; I am married to an Oak Framer, we live in the middle of the woods and we have our ‘first child’ a sprocker spaniel, four hens and a working cocker spaniel pup. Up until a few years ago, I was a self employed graphic designer, however now I devote myself to my family, our home and this little space on the web and social media platforms.
I love nothing more than going for long walks in our woods and surrounding fields with our dogs and daughter, cooking and baking, watching my OH build beautiful oak framed buildings and growing our own food in our vegetable garden.
Late 2015, I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, which has allowed me to reconnect with the practice of mindfulness and general wellbeing. Living with Ankylosing Spondylitis, is a new journey I am on and whilst it will never define me, I occasionally like to use this space to share with those who know little about the condition, raising awareness of chronic invisible illness, as well as creating a space for discussion and support for others living with AS.
With an honest, practical and ethical focus on Slow Living, Outdoor Lifestyle, Family, Eco Parenting and Wellness, I love working with brands and individuals who share the same ethics. I have had a few mentions in some favourite magazines of mine since launching the blog in 2015, which has been a wonderful driving force behind growing and continuing to share our woodland life.
To some my life may not seem glamourous or exciting, but for me, I am living my dream of slow living with an outdoor lifestyle and invite you to read all about our everyday life from our woodland home.
