I'm McKenzie.
Homemaker, Homeschooling, Mama of 3..

who loves to garden, savor that first sip of coffee & soak up that good morning light pouring through the windows. I'm also passionate about helping others navigate motherhood for a simpler, more natural & intentional home.

a little about me..

I'm a born & raised Oregonian living in Texas! We moved our family summer 2021 to just north of Austin, Texas! We've shared our life online in various ways for just almost 8 years now. If you're new here, you'll find a variety of recipes & natural living tips & tricks, but you'll also find our story woven throughout..

A journey of food sensitivities, navigating diet changes,
two miscarriages, moving halfway across the country, shifting to homeschooling our girls alongside what we've learned about product safety, toxins that disrupt our body and ways we've become more intentional in cultivating a happy and healthy life for our family..

Cooking in the kitchen, soaking up that good morning light and getting my hands dirty in the garden, babywearing & listening to our girls' giggles are a few of my favorite things. I equally love trekking a new trail, going on roadtrips and the satisfaction found in a homemade loaf of gluten-free sourdough fresh out of the oven. 

I'M HERE TO help you thrive in motherhood. we want to live our best life, feel intentional, confident, creative and have fun along the way!
