Hi, Kate heresteemCreated with Sketch.

So, my dad used to always tell me to pick one thing and do it well. He also said to always question authority. Guess what. Only one stuck. “Question authority” just has such a nice ring to it, dontcha think? !DD48CA4F-D851-480E-8DE5-37BD49728E67.jpeg
Needless to say, I am a bit of a Jane of all trades, renaissance woman, and to some I guess it looks like unmotivated slacker.
My family and I live in the Ozarks. And yes, it’s by choice. My husband and I met in Sitka, Alaska where I lived in a shanty in the woods, a boat, and a van after dropping out of dorm life. We drove to Mexico, got pregnant and went back to Alaska. Post partum depression combined with the 100” of rain got us moving. After a 2 month stint in Ecuador, we ended up visiting friends from Alaska who had moved back to the Ozarks and it all lined up. Here we are.

We built an off-grid strawbale home near the Buffalo National River and homeschooled our kiddos.588EE9DA-F18C-4EC5-934A-18D83E4F633F.jpeg I had my third and final baby, unassisted, there. We made money taking my jewelry561831F7-5772-40C6-976D-009BF27F10FD.jpeg to art shows around the country. 87A341AA-BC83-4730-9069-74096A369929.jpeg
My kids wanted to go to high school in town so we are now renovating an actual condemned house. I still go out to our cabin at least once a week. 5ADF5C3E-085E-4938-BFDC-971E351976A8.jpeg

Hi, welcome to steemit, I'm not a bot. ;-}. To many of those around as of late. Is the mini your horse? or a friends. Lots of place to see and find on steemit, take a look through some of the tags, I would avoid the hot and trending tabs, they are kind of false advertising. the new is good, you may have to scroll a long way to find stuff but sometimes you can find cool little gems in there.


Yeah. I’ve been finding some gems amid the bots. The mini is not mine. It was at a retreat I was at. A neighbors that had gotten loose.


They are nice little horses, though some can be mean, my wife has a friend that has mini's. The number in (37) that is your reputation level, it used to mean something, not so much any more with the advent of the vote bots. It is supposed to sort of mean that you have been here on steemit and are a rusted and respected member of the community. Now you can buy reputation though purchasing votes, votes are the only thing that make your reputation go up or down.


I was home taught. I eat from my gardens. I love yoga. I love your photos. I love the equality of free markets. Different people do different things. Generally, women make different choices according to @Stefan.Molyneux and the patterns found in history.


We have a lot on common! Thanks


How are you?

Wow, what an excellent presentation! Wish you a warm welcome! :)


Thanks so much!

Wow, that's quite an eyefull. Good job with the introduction. And your dad's a wise man :)


Thanks! Ha yeah. I went a little overboard with the photos. Beginners excitement.


Not overboard at all, I think it was perfect and you're getting good responses.

Welcome to Steemit! I can already tell I'm gonna love your posts mama! Let's keep in touch and spread the love xxx


Yeah! Thanks so much. Look forward to steeming with you!
