Picture this: a log cabin tucked in 20 acres of mountain woods, with nothing but sprawling landscapes for miles. Waking up and savoring a cup of coffee on the porch that overlooks a grove, or a tranquil lake, or a quiet stream. Building a simple life that doesn’t revolve around commuting times, but around the things that most require our attention. Family, health, and contribution. Feeling purpose in tending the land – plowing, harvesting, building, sustaining. Creating a home that is more than the 2,000 square-foot, manufactured, white-picket-fence dream for which we’re told to aspire.
We’re a couple of city-slicking outdoor enthusiasts who want a simpler life out of our urban lifestyle. Our dream is to explore national parks, learn to DIY, and save for a cabin in the woods. We don’t want to rush through life without appreciating the world around us. Why can’t we focus on things that bring us joy?
We will document our journey toward the simple things, including every stumble and mishap along the way. Our goal is a life where we can choose how to spend our time and how we experience the world. We want a life where we can stop chasing societal expectations and, instead, embrace fulfillment.
