"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

--1 thessalonians 4: 11-12

meet dre

you've heard of anne of green gables. 
well, i'm dre of white stables.
and yes, that's supposed to be funny. ;)

lead by the lord on a pursuit of self sufficiency and a simpler life, 
we recently left the city for a small farm on the edge of town. 

i like to keep it real here, because
i hate it when people are fake.
i also hate turning left. 
fortunately, i love many more things than i hate...

my heart beats vintage,
and my house exudes it.
i cook to the sounds of big band music,
and clean to music that moves this old soul.

i have a passion for home making,
and a yearning for a simpler life.
my babies are born at home and
we do our best to equip them as
they step out into a new world
at school.

i take pictures to preserve this life i love,
and i blog to remember it.
i love to make things,
and i love it even more when i can give those things away.

i love coffee any time of the day.
i love historical fiction.
i am growing more and more passionate about *real* food and
taking care of my family in that way.

above all, i love my jesus.
after that i love my husband
and my 4 babies.
welcome to my blog.
 thanks for stopping by.
i hope you'll stay awhile...
i'd love to get to know you, too.
