Hi! I’m Nicole Nelson – Welcome to my blog “Homestead to Heaven”!
Do you ever feel like you’re just pluggin’ along, but not really getting anywhere? Do you have big dreams, but feel like the gap between your dreams and reality is insurmountable? Then you’re in the right place.
I’ve been there (and still have those moments), but we’re working towards pursuing our dreams while staying present in reality. I invite you to join us in our adventure, and receive hope and encouragement in what I post.
Oh… and just in case you were wondering:
I’m pretty much just your average mom of 5 kids. Things are constantly moving here – there’s always something or someone to take care of… Floors to sweep, meals to make, a child to hold, a picture to see, a bump to kiss, and the list goes on.
I love wine, coffee, and essential oils. I really cherish those moments when I can sit down with a friend, one-on-one while sipping coffee or wine, and chat a morning or evening away!
I love my family! My God, my hubby, and my kids come first in my life (in that order), and are the catalyst behind everything I do.
My biggest dream for our family is to have land and raise animals and a garden, and pursue the homesteading way of life that is becoming ever-increasingly popular!
That dream is what fuels this blog. You’ll become privy to the goings on in our home and in my head (i am apologizing in advance for the crazy, distracted thinking that shall come from that) as we strive to be more intentional with our lives. In doing so, I hope to encourage you to be more intentional in yours as well.
You don’t have to be super woman (or man) to live a life of purpose and balance. Purpose is in the everyday. It’s just up to you to discover it and be intentional about it.
So I’m here to encourage you…
What would your “perfect day” look like?
Do you want to stress less and smile more?
Do you have dreams that are lost somewhere in the cobwebs?
Then this blog may just be for you! I hope you find comfort, encouragement, and inspiration in these pages, as well as the motivation to move forward in pursuing your goals and dreams.
Because the worst thing you can do is not even try…
