Hello! I’m Kristen, a musician who is tired of the nomadic lifestyle. All I’ve ever wanted to be was a singer, but once I achieved my goal I realized that the lifestyle is one that I can’t sustain. This blog is about my journey towards a simpler life. Less busyness, less guilt, less excess, and more family, more community, more fun. I’m getting back to my prairie roots and embracing my love of DIY and gardening. I love making things beautiful and I hope to share that with you. I also want to encourage those of you who have a degree in fine arts or music that there is life after, even if its what you never imagined it to be.
