Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Good morning, Friends!

Our family has the opportunity to visit some family at the lake, and it’s a lovely and relaxing location.


Greg’s family has a wonderful air chair, right by the lake, and I snatched a moment to enjoy the scenery last evening.


I can see why they live at the lakeside!

This week, I posted a video over at YouTube, chronicling some of our reasons for living off grid. My channel is tiny, but it’s been encouraging to see how many people are interested in that way of life.


Then, I just put a sweet little short video about Charlie up too. He’s such a mess.

This post is the written version of the first YouTube video linked above.  

What has been going up in your world?

I’m posting this–will come back when we are on the road, and share some features from last week’s hop!


The Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop

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

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!
