In 2015, after too many years of working too many hours, I decided to change my life. This blog shares my stories related to making the change and simplifying my life–a process that began when we finally got our first chickens.

In this blog, I will share my experiences learning how to hobby farm on a small place in Maine, become more self-sufficient, live frugally, live peacefully, and have more time for love.

I hope you will join me on this journey by following my blog and following me on Twitter @CrystalDSands or on my Facebook page, Pajamas, Books, and Chickens.
