Sometimes I joke with my other half that I'd like to live in the American Prairie times. Or be Amish for a week. I love that traditional, homey, family-orientated life. I keep trying to put some of that into my every day like. 

I realise this is not 'trendy' or 'super modern'. I'm bucking the trend! I love staying home with my son, I feel like there is no job more important that I will ever have in my life than being a present, loving mother. 

I take my role as a mother and homemaker very seriously. I enjoy looking after my home and [attempting!] to work on the garden. I love to nurture my son. I love to bake and could happily bake apple pies and cookies with my little boy everyday. 

I like keeping life simple, not running around here, there and everywhere. I like old TV shows [seriously, Murder She Wrote and Dallas are my favourites!] and sitting down with a hot drink and a book. I dream of a big ranch with animals and country music. I fiercely love my family and, if I could, I would have a big family and my life would be full of tiny chatter and loving memories. 

Like I have said in my previous post, I'm not a gadget and gizmos kinda girl. My phone is and old hand-me-down, as are a lot of things we have. I want to make sure I never lose sight of what is important to me and what I feel matters in this crazy modern world. I want my son to stay little and innocent for as long as possible, I want him to love his trains and playing sport and spending time with his family.

  1. Lovely post. I can relate to a lot of it, especially the phone ;) My dream is a bit of land and my own horses one day :)
