Just learned about this site from my husband as we were talking about what our next steps are. Very short intro: we live in an almost 200 year old home in the rural suburbs of NE Ohio with our boys and are looking to create a homestead. Well - really we have been in small steps for the last decade or so, but after 7 years of getting into the swing of having kids, etc., we're at a point where we're looking to figure out what our dreams are now & make some changes to work toward those more intentionally and in a real way. So we're in the midst of figuring out what that looks like now.
So glad to have found this - just the short time I've had so far to look around, it looks like it will be a wealth of information! So, looking forward to that, and would also love to connect with some folks roughly in the Cleveland/Akron area, if there are any around...
