Our Mission at Making it Home
Join us on our journey to live a less complicated life. In this blog, we will rediscover the more traditional ways of living a simpler, happier, healthier home life. Along the way, we will share the path that has led us here. Some of our awesome tips on homemaking, homesteading, and just making your life better overall.
Every topic we write about here at Making It Home will be part of the foundation of living a more traditional life and nurturing your home to create a retreat away from the world. Every project, story, DIY, or referral to a business or product will be added in an effort to help you, our reader, live a less complicated life and focus on the things that really matter. We want to provide a place where you can come and get inspiration, solve a problem, have a laugh, or just get a moment of peace from the chaotic world around you. We always try to create content that we can be proud to share that will hopefully bring you closer to simpler and healthier living.
I am a wife and a mother of one adult daughter. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Part of my life was spent in Alaska, the majority in Washington State. As a consequence I love being outdoors and have an addiction to camping and fishing.
I grew up in a house full of nerds. And I fully believe video games are a great way to reduce stress and keep your brain functioning. There’s nothing I enjoy more after a long day of work than killing demons.
I have always loved to cook, organize, garden, spend time outdoors and craft. I learned some skills from my grandparents and some from my parents. I am one of the last generations of my family to embrace the old traditions, but hopefully, I can bring them back as a better way of doing things.
Not to long ago I became a born-again Christian, and I try every day to have a strong relationship with Christ. But I’m not your typical Christian girl. I’m the type of girl that never claims to be perfect but I seek to be perfected! I describe myself as a Christian who cusses.
I like to think of myself as a girl with the design sense of Joanna Gaines and the personality of Jenna Marbles. “Sass, class, and a little bit o’ crass”.
Aaron is a fun loving, hardworking husband and dad. He served in the US Army right out of high school as a Ranger in the early 1990s. He met me when he was stationed in Washington State. When he got out of the Army we began our family and lived your average life. Until we decided we wanted something better.
Aaron is interested in all aspects of homesteading which he really became obsessed with after watching a documentary on BTE gardening. After that, he was hooked! You can usually find him outside most of the time working on gardening, tending our fruit trees, hanging with the chickens, or building something to make our life easier.
He will occasionally write a DIY or post here on the blog. But most of the time Aaron works behind the scenes being super supportive and just generally awesome. Oh, and he builds stuff!
