Welcome to the Chicken Coop

Welcome! Mi blog es su blog! I’m so glad you’re here.

Living in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I am blessed with opportunities to LIVE, EAT and CRAFT, both locally and in  an eco- friendly manner.  It isn’t always easy and it can make a lot of people question my insanity at times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way (and I’m definitely not going back to my old ways, either).

I come from a big ol’ family that, although live far away, shape my days and keep me going. I also have a lot of friends, who are my pillars and muses in life. And then, there is my boyfriend, Sean, who is my biggest support in and through all of this.  For me, community and health are everything, and I’m so lucky to have been able to fuse the two in my life.

Overall, my days are pretty simple. I choose to make decisions based on what makes me happy, rather than any other societal gauge. I work as a nanny for an amazing family! Basically, I spend forty hours a week chasing after twin two-year olds! As a result of my career decision, I rarely have a bad day, but I must also make certain sacrifices that other twenty-somethings wouldn’t necessarily have to make. The pay off is worth it, however, for me.  Life, I realized, is personal and busy and messy, but totally worth living.  This blog is all about that for me: how to make the kind of messes you don’t have to clean up behind and having fun along the way.
