Welcome to Simplify, Live, Love – a blog about our life in Eastern Iowa. I’m Michelle.I have one husband and four kids! That means, some days I have five kids… Here’s my family ~ the stars of my blog ~
And my hip dysplasia babyI blog about all kinds of stuff: Slow food cooking (from scratch), grinding my own flour and baking my own bread, gardening, cloth diapering, homeschooling, shopping in bulk from Amish to save money, shopping loss leaders, our efforts to renovate an old barn that should have been burned, and hip dysplasia – something I would rather not have to deal with at all.
But most importantly, I blog about our crazy adventures trying to build a sustainable homestead in Eastern Iowa. We are self-employed. We try to be a green family. We try hard to balance wants and needs (a first grade lesson that sadly, most people seem to have forgotten), and being frugal without being cheap. To that end, I blog. I love sharing my pictures and the foibles of our journey with you.
I hope you’ll join me! Please take a minute to:

I’d love for you to join me in this crazy thing called LIFE.
