AZ homesteader. Boho blogger. Lavender lady.

Hi! I'm Brandy. I'm a Christian, wife, mother of 3 young children, and aspiring lavender farmer, homesteader, crafter, and writer.

My herd of wild animals--I mean children--are my inspiration. My husband and I spend our days chasing the children, gardening in the sunshine, going on quad rides, and creating things. Homesteady things.

And weeding. And watering. And watering the weeds. Weeding some more. Such is farmlife in Arizona.

This SoCal city girl had some adjusting to do! It turns out, after dedicating myself to "Blooming where you are planted," this is exactly where I needed to be to rediscover the old fashioned nester that I had forgotten.

In addition to my family, "pole barn" home, cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, sheep, giant garden, field of hay, and numerous fruit trees, I have recently added lavender farming to our acreage. I will be growing and harvesting to make essential oils, hydrosols, teas, and bath and body products. From my home and hands to yours.

I'm a nonconformist. I love nature and freedom and kindness. Letting your light shine through people's judgments. But I also love the old ways of making things, handwritten letters, and tea parties.

So grab a floppy hat and a bouquet of fresh wildflowers and let's have a tea party and talk about things. We can be fancy with our homemade treats and laughing about how our parenting styles have evolved from Pinterest perfect to "but did you die?" We can play music and you can roll your eyes about how I'm a total sugar addict but I do my best to live a healthy lifestyle. We can inspire each other to sow, tend, and harvest the fruit of life.

Yours sincerely,


Live, love, lavender
