Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Happy October!

New week, new month, new blog challenge!

I decided to participate again this month in the Ultimate Blog Challenge!

I’ve done a few, and it always helps me to focus more on my blogging game.

One post per day for the whole month, visiting a minimum of two other blogs in the challenge to read and leave a thoughtful comment. It’s not so hard, if you can keep cranking out the blog posts.

I’ve met some great friends during the last challenges.

Ultimate Blog Challenge

My focus for the month will be to write about something off grid homestead related.

Sometimes it will be a lesson learned, at other times a favorite recipe from my box, and many times I’ll show you a peek into the progress we are making on our off grid cabin building project.

You can also follow us on YouTube. We are building our channel there, and it gives a much better visual image into the homestead.

The Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop

This is a place to share some love and spread some sunshine!

Thanks for coming by today!



The focus of this blog hop will be: anything related to making our homes more sunny and happy! If that’s through homemade cooking, a health tip that will help another, homesteading tips, homeschool successes or real-life struggles, or just whatever God is impressing you with in your home journey, please share it!

  1. I love your blog graphics! And I would totally join your blog hop but I doubt I will have any posts related to being at home. Maybe after the challenge. Or if I write one on the weekend.
