Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Mother's Day...

41 degrees outside - 11:16 pm - raining...

For me, Mother’s Day is a time of celebration for Moms, and everything they do for their families throughout the year.  It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You’s”.

Yes, some days the sacrifices of Motherhood seem to outweigh the laughter.  But then Caitlyn will whisper something in my ear that just makes me crack up… or Jack will come give me a big hug and tell me he loves me… or the kids will actually spend an hour playing together sharing their toys.  And then I am thankful over and over again that I get to be their mom.

my daughter (along with a beautiful bouquet of
my favorite flowers from my husband and son)
