Where to begin

I am a mom in my late twenties with two little boys and an amazing husband, and I am trying to learn how to be the best stay-at-home mom possible. I feel blessed to be able to be at home and recently realised how much more I can do to improve our lifestyle. I would also like our family to work towards a more self-sustainable future.

I am starting this blog mostly as my “green” journal, recording my path to self sustainability. If it motivates anyone else to start a small change in their own lives, that is just a bonus.

I actually started this journey about a months ago, so have done my fair share towards this new lifestyle. For this reason my next few posts will actually be catchup of what I have done so far. I have quite a few before and after pics to share as well.

Today is my 27th birthday so what better way to start a new year in my life than to start my first ever blog!

  1. Hi Crystal
    Welcome to blog world. I look forward to following another SA blogger. I am rather jealous tho' firstly I am 20 years older, secondly I work 5½ days a week and finally the climate you have. My grandparents lived in Durban, so I have fond memories of the beautiful lush gardens where anything grows.

  2. Hi Garden Girl. Thanks for following. I do feel very blessed to be able to stay at home and to live in Durban. I have taken a peak at your blog and your garden is beautiful. I will have to go back and see how you have progressed.

  3. Thanks for popping in Tracy. Wow, you are right, so similar! Just one question, not sure if I'm just not looking properly, but I can't seem to find the follow button on your blog?
