Do you struggle to get outdoors with your kids? Need solutions for your days at home?


I'm Holly, a storyteller, writer and Florida Master Naturalist.

I share stories of the mess and glory of raising two boys in the great outdoors and homeschooling them too. Most days you will find me sitting on my back porch watching the wildlife, meaning my boys not the birds. Our family enjoys a simple life in Florida and having an adventure or two.

My stories here on the website are a love letter to my children. Thanking them for what they have taught me and reminding them of the sweet life we have shared together, if I survive it!
