lol I do understand, VALIFT... I was born and raised a City Girl, myself. A So. California City Girl, at that. LOL If you had asked me... even 10 years ago, if this was something that I would consider - let alone, look forward to - I would have thought you had a few screws loose. LOL

I live in a suburb of a medium size city (Ottawa, Canada). I so look forward to my retirement (between 6.5 and 9.5 years from now depending on the savings siutation) and then we are going to move to a rural property on Canada's east coast. We have a cottage there now and can only visit once each year. One day it will be a one way drive to a slower life.
I will have a dedicated home gym n that house.

I sometimes wish that I could homestead. But I live in a city and have a job that only exists in places where there are enough people to support a hospital or at least a relatively large medical clinic. I'd be okay with moving out of the city and working at a relatively large medical clinic, but my husband would hate it. (He's a city boy, for sure.) Maybe one day....but definitely not this week.....

There was much rejoicing!

Hello! :-)

Homesteading is rural living, yes, but it's more akin to farming, I guess. It's sustainable living. At least how we're planning to do it. We'll be raising or hunting our own meat, growing our own fruits and veggies... fresh eggs... We're hoping to go off the grid at some point, but that will be down the line, after we're better established. Just getting back to more simple living...

Welcome!

What's homesteading? I'm a city girl. Does that mean rural living?

Hello, all,

I just thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself.

I'm a SAHM/Home Educator to 3. Ages ranging from 3 to 15. I'm also spouse to a US soldier, who we're waiting to retire so that we can 'retire' to the plot of land that we've recently purchase. We're planning to homestead. Our ultimate vision of Simple Living. So, I thought this would be a great team to join up with.

I look forward to sharing and getting to know everyone!
