My post from May 16 summarizes this transition: Blame it on Charlotte's Web: How a Preppy Girl Ended Up with a Farm.
I have spent years looking for other households who are doing something similar. I found homesteading blogs and farming blogs. I found preppy blogs, fashion blogs, and decorating blogs. I found blogs of large families and blogs of Catholic moms. I found blogs about bloggers, writers and teachers. But I never found blogs of families who were all of these things combined. That's when Preppy Mountain Farmhouse was born. I am trying to achieve a balance of all these facets of our life and share with you how we do it. It's not perfect, and it's not always very photogenic, but it's honest. If you want a glimpse into a hobby farming, mountain living, large Catholic family with a mom who yearns to decorate, dress, write, and entertain with preppy style, this is your blog. It is full of our original photos and how-to tips and accomplishments and some failures too.
Welcome to the Preppy Mountain Farmhouse.
