I’m Erika and I’m the author and Queen Bee here on the hill. I decided to start this blog, well, because I love life here on the hill and I wanted to share it.
I have always lived in a small rural community and participated in 4-H. However, I love my glam too. It was hard coming up with a “theme” for this blog since I feel that I, myself, don’t fall into a set category. This blog will simply be about me and my life raising kids and creating this little farm.
I attended Purdue University for Personal Finance and, while in college, I married my high school sweetheart. After graduating, I worked for a local credit union going to area high schools teaching students about finance. I fell in love with the classroom setting and decided to attend Oakland City University to obtain my teaching license. I taught at my old high school for four years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Oh, and because of my personal finance background, we are HUGE, I mean HUGE, Dave Ramsey fans.
A few years ago, after we got pregnant with our first child, my husband and I decided to buy my childhood home with ten acres which is attached to my family’s larger 100 acre farm. About a year after moving in, the twenty acres next to us came up for sale and we bought that too! (We love not seeing neighbors!) Since then, we have added a second child to the mix so life is always interesting here on the hill.
Now we are taking on the adventure of using this land to create our own little family farm a little at a time. God has blessed us with this life and I hope that my posts will be a blessing to you.
