In 2011, my husband Nate and I set a vision to live on land. You know, the kind of life where at the end of the day you've got to hose the whole family off before coming inside? While we waited, I started a print magazine called Cottage Hill—a consistently sold-out, internationally distributed publication. Eventually, we found our dream property and I sold my businesses.
Now, my days are filled with farm chores and defining for myself what it means to be a stay-at-home mom. We raise Babydoll Sheep, cattle, chickens and have a modest garden. You can learn more about our farmette—which we call Everly & Raine Co.—and how to acquire your own Babydoll Sheep at everlyraine.com. Or check out my blog for more lifestyle content!
And how I'm redefining what stay-at-home mom means to me
Greater things may not be bigger things for you. You may deep down, have dreams that seem small, but to you mean the world. I get that. Could I invite you to a different idea?
Stop looking to the right and left. You're not going to find what you're looking for there, and no matter how hard you work, you'll be disappointed. It's time to stop playing small, and by that I mean small-minded.
It's time to redefine success and pursue it your own way.
After selling my businesses in 2019, I recognized it was time to fully embrace my new role for this season as a stay-at-home mom. I started the mental and physical journey with my personal 2020 Challenge...you can read more about that here on my blog.
