As many know, I have recently moved to a new region called the Cariboo along British Columbia's 'Fly Fishing Highway' where we are so lucky to be surrounded by big lakes with trophy fish. We've been renovating and working so hard on a big project which I cannot wait to share. I was planning on keeping this separate from this page, but a few people had found my separate Instagram called @cariboufarmhouse which is leading up to our new place and what it all entails as a homestead, a bed and breakfast, workshop and more.
Caribou farmhouse & Acres is about living life in the slow lane and living life intentionally & gratefully. The Cariboo was never a place I imagined myself settling down, in fact it is seven hours in the opposite direction from where my five year plan was going to take me. Life changed when I met Bryan though, our approach to what we needed in our lives at that moment changed and we realized that we had very similar dreams in building a place which we were proud of. Our quaint ranch town doesn't offer much in the department store sense, but it certainly offers us the ability to foster our animals, and soon to come animals, as well as gardens and bees and the simplicities of life. It requires us to do our own handiwork, to make use of what we have and to become content with less.
It is my hope that before our bed & breakfast, gardens & workshop are built that we can create a community to share these moments of happiness, of living in alignment, of living with intention, of going back to slow living admiring the pioneering ways of homesteading and appreciating the beauty of which those moments bring; whether that be a horizon where the sky and earth touch, the smell of a handed down recipe baking in the oven or picking through your garden moments before a meal.
