Kids of the 80’s grew up with: TGIF as a Friday night television ritual, slap stick bracelets, outdoor play, and using the dewey decimal system for research. Millennials also grew up with a convenience store at every corner and a generational gap in the understanding of how to produce simple necessitates for everyday living.
As technology advanced, so did our reliance on big industry. Ma & Pa shops slowly turned into store super-centers. Infomercials & commercials blasted our minds with must have items….and boy, oh boy, did the super-centers make it convenient & affordable to access to all sorts of food, beauty supplies & gimmicks.
Slowly the generation of outside playing ruffians, became glued to tiny cellphone screens and Amazon Prime shipping (guilty) and lost touch with ‘it’.
IT….what is it? How to be self-reliant. How to take out the middle man and work with our community on re-building the basics. To have control and trust amongst neighbors who are striving for the holistic approach for optimal health (without breaking the bank or spending endless hours creating lotions and potions).
This blog documents our journey of deconstructing our overly complicated lives and explains how we are learning about improving our health, the lost art of self-reliance, and handcrafted fun! We are here to help, share, inspire, and meet like minded individuals wanting to change their small sphere of influence for the better.
