About Me

Hello there! I’m Katie and I am from Huntsville, Alabama.

This blog is for the everyday family who would like to be more eco-friendly and self sustainable. Caring for the environment has always been a passion of mine. I am fairly new to zero waste and I’m still working on figuring out what ways work best for me and my family. I like to know what products are coming into our home and being used to nourish our bodies. During all of my research I decided that while exploring my own path I can help others discover theirs along the way.

One of the ways my family cuts back on waste is by providing for ourselves with our urban homestead. It’s not much but it’s ours, and I hope to share our homesteading journey with you and inspire you to possibly start your own homestead, urban or not.

I am a photographer, gardener, DIY’er, and a stay at home mom of two boys. I love exploring the outdoors with my family and traveling. My husband is a mechanical engineer who also has a passion for DIY’ing, traveling, and taking caring for the environment. The more my wanderlust (and family) grew the more I realized I did not want to work 40 hours a week away from home. I want to be able to spend time with my family and to have the time and money to travel when we please. Being able to provide for ourselves by growing our own food and realizing that we can live with less really helps out.
