Hello!  My name is Rosemary.  My husband and I will be first-time parents in March, and we are both just beside ourselves with excitement!   We live in the woods, where we are beginning homesteaders.  We raise chickens for eggs, garden, can and preserve as much as we can.  Someday soon we intend to expand with sheep and dairy goats!  I run an independent, creative business from my home studio,  which will allow me to live my career dreams, while being a full-time mom...my dream come true!   We are looking forward to raising our child in our little woodland farm, teaching her/him a love of nature and the respect for animals that we share.


This month, I experimented by lurking on many different parenting forums, trying to find the perfect one to join.  I was disheartened at the tone of most of them...they seemed more like a place for frazzled moms to vent, and didn't really support the lifestyle and parenting style that we will be living.  Finally I stumbled on "Mothering" and it seems to be everything I was hoping to find in an online community!!  The forums have such a kind, calm, and supporting vibe!  I was thrilled to find so many articles and discussions on natural births/home births, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, green living, and a natural lifestyle...it's as if this site was made for the way we intend to parent, and I'm thrilled to join you all!
