Kia ora and welcome!
I’m Brie. I started this blog more than 10 years ago, just after S. and I got engaged. Over these past decade it’s been an ebb and flow of my writing and S.’s writing; stories and thoughts chronicling our wedding plans, our lives together, trying to conceive and raising our son T. Right now it’s mostly me that writes – predominantly about simple living (or ‘enoughism’), urban homesteading (or trying to), sustainability, homeschooling, and celebrating the seasons, with an occasional feminist rant thrown in for good measure. More recently, I’ve turned my hand to make films and now have a youtube channel which you can find here.
So who are we? We’re a two mum family (I’m mama, S. is mummy) with a nearly seven year old boy living in NZ. We meet through druidry and as we’ve grown together connecting with nature, celebrating the seasons and living an intentional life has become more important to us. We live in a wild and windswept suburb in a (nearly) tiny house with a good sized section (though not such a productive climate for growing things) where we are raising chickens and trying to convince a garden that it can grow in high winds. S. runs the household (brilliantly, in my opinion) and I work 4 days as a middle school teacher, and a couple of evenings a week teaching dance. Our busy boy T. is homeschooled and loves his chickens, books, bike riding and science.
