My name is Megan and I love old sh!t. I grew up (and still live) on about 150 acres of family owned land in the great state of North Carolina. I have a passion for doing things the way my great grandmother did, and I pine for days that I have never actually seen. I love baking, beekeeping, soap making, home-making, sewing, hunting, fishing, farming, camping… I could go on but I won’t.
I have the fondest memories of my childhood that I cling to more than a drunk clings to a bottle. I love my family and our farm so very much! I can honestly say that I have been blessed beyond measure, and I have nobody to thank but Jesus himself. He guides my tiny ship, and though I may hit a few rocks, I never sink. I don’t care what anyone says, there is beauty in the struggle.
I recently dropped out of college to pursue my dream of selling soap, honey, and antiques full time (not to mention a part time job to support my hobbies until they support me). I believe that education is a great thing, but I also believe it is NOT for everyone. It takes a very special mind to sit though classes, quizzes, and tests and that is just not who I am. I get fidgety and antsy. I admire all those who complete college, but I also question their sanity.
I spend most of my time cleaning (much to my dismay), baking, working on the farm, and messing with my ever patient bees. I love those bees. Ever since I can remember I have loved horses, but since last year they have taken a backseat to those buzzing, lively, busy bees. I know I said I love them but I LOVE them. I don’t just love the bees, I love anything to do with bees. My pintrest is filled with pictures of bee shower curtains, bee canisters, bee silverware, SO MUCH BEE STUFF. I love them.
Another side of me is the love for nutrition and fitness. I am a firm believer in that our food is our medicine. Sickness, cancer, heart disease and many more ailments have all been proven to be linked to DIET. We ain’t eatin’ right folks. On our farm, we raise, harvest and process our own meats. No hormones, no antibiotics, no witchcraft. Just GRASS. On top of that I recently saw a documentary that suggested that even without all of the added harmful chemicals, that meat itself turns on cancer in the body. The documentary claimed that eating an all plant-based diet is the holy grail of life and everyone should question how they eat. That being said, I have thought about going vegan (with the exception of honey, I think most of the vegan community is confused and think that honey extraction is harmful to the bees) but more on that later!
I am an avid sportsman. Deer season (rifle) is approaching quickly. Opening morning you won’t find me making breakfast or doing womanly things, you will find me in the woods (hopefully with dinner in my cross-hairs). If hunting offends anyone I would apologize but it’s simply who I am; however, last summer I raised a fawn, so I’m not entirely an evil killing machine.
I think that’s about it for today. Well right now anyways, I plan to make a couple posts today!
Have a wonderfall day!
