This is a blog about the daily life of our little family of four. Everyday we learn new ways of becoming more self-sustainable, a little more patient, and a little more creative. We are fortunate enough to live in an amazingly beautiful area nestled in between the Sleeping Giant, the Green Mesa, and the Silver Mountains. Welcome to our little family!

How was your weekend? Ours was pretty darn good! We scored ourselves a 20 cubic ft freezer for super cheap, thank you craigslist!
You might be wondering why we need such a large freezer. Do you know what a 1/4 cow looks like? I didn't until this weekend. Sam and I had been discussing whether or not we should purchase part of a cow. We knew we were going to need a freezer. Sam will be going hunting for the first time this season, and the plan is to either get an elk or a deer for meat for the winter/year. But what if he isn't successful? I am not trying to be a "Negative Nancy," but we need to be realistic. So in comes this local, grass-fed, already processed, 119 lbs of beef. All we have to do is go pick it up!
So there it is. One quarter cow. And still plenty of room :)!
