Hi, I'm Emily.

I live in south central Pennsylvania with my husband Tom. We have a three year old son and two babies in heaven. I’ve been blogging since 2007. I blog about life, including our monthly budget, how I quit my job, things that help me with motherhood, how I REALLY want to have a farm and how Jesus saved my life.

I love talking to people in real life, you can find me on facebook, and by email at [email protected]
