Meet Callie from Good to gather
Hey you – I’m glad you’re here! I guess I should start by telling you that I’m the behind-the-scenes creator of all the recipes, stories, and photography here on Good to Gather. I’m wife to my best friend, mother to six children, and full time homemaker. Grab your favorite cup of something and stay a while?
Good to gather
For the last couple of years, my husband and I have dreamt up this wild plan of building a modern homestead. FINALLY, we are at the starting line of that big adventure! We’d love for you to follow along and see how the story unfolds. Along the way, I’ll be sharing what we already know about homeschooling, baking from-scratch, sourdough, DIY projects, home décor (on a realistic budget), and back yard gardening.
so you should know
I’m underwhelmingly ordinary, slightly introverted, wildly expressive, and absolutely in love with real life. There’s something magical about this natural world that we live in- it speaks a language all of it’s own, and I’ll spend my whole life trying to learn it.
I love playing in the dirt and growing things, baking from-scratch meals, and making things pretty. I’m learning that I’ll always be learning, and that sometimes messy is the only way.
growing and gathering
Life changes with the seasons and we’ll always be met with challenges, blessings, and bounties. We till, we weed, we plant, we grow, and we reap the fruit of our labors. There is no escaping the work that has to be done. But when we stop wrestling and meet it all with joy, we can find beauty and meaning in every endeavor. And even better – we don’t have to do it alone.
So come and welcome to my small corner of the big wide world. It is Good to Gather.
