Hi!  We are Ben and Melissa.

We like to drink too much coffee and make stuff.

We got married on May 31, 2008.  Our first baby, "Z" made us Mama & Daddy on November 16, 2009.  Little brother "A" sweetened our family with his presence on January 18, 2013.

We bought our first house in August of 2013 and together we are renovating it and planning to use our land to live a more self-sustained lifestyle.

This blog is our way of documenting our adventures as we dive into homesteading, honeybees, homeschooling and beyond.

In a nutshell, what Ben and Melissa do.
