Perfectly Askew Life

I'm a wife, mom, teacher, gardener, doula, friend, blogger, goat herder, CPST, short order cook (my kitchen only), a daydreamer, and this is my life...

I am a Jesus loving, mommy-blogging, homeschooling, homestead building, coffee drinking, diaper changing, loving wife who aims to laugh and have fun EVERY DAY. Check out my blog at to see what fun and exciting things are racing through my living room and my head. Join me for decompression mode after crazy days trying to keep everyone alive. I hope you enjoy reading, as much as I enjoy writing!
