Roost + Restore

The Author

Hey y’all! My name is Kaycee, I am a 20 some­thing, wife, mama, (both human and fur) home­stead­er in the mak­ing that has been washed in The Blood of Jesus Christ! I am from a small lit­tle town in West­ern Ken­tucky called Fan­cy Farm…yes that is a real place. I love yard­sales, junkin and adore the sto­ries behind a well worn piece of furniture.

Grow­ing up, I was always told I had an old soul. That soul blend­ed beau­ti­ful­ly with my hus­bands home­stead­er heart and here we are, mar­ried with two per­fect boys and a dream. The plan is to make this big ole’ house and lit­tle piece of land a self-sus­taing home­stead for us and our boys. They are our whole world and every­thing we do, we do for them. We believe in rais­ing them with wide open spaces, fresh air and bare feet while teach­ing them to use the land God has giv­en us for sus­tain­abil­i­ty and purpose.

We moved into our for­ev­er home, a fix­er upper farm­house on 15 acres in Decem­ber 2019. My hus­band and I vowed to nev­er live in anoth­er fix­er upper after flip­ping two homes in our first five years of marriage.…ha! But alas, here we are! And here YOU are, I am deeply grate­ful you are here. Let’s be friends and come along on this jour­ney with us!

“He makes me lie down in green pas­tures; He leads me beside qui­et waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of right­eous­ness for the sake of His name. Even though I walk through the val­ley of the shad­ow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me.”

Psalms 23: 3–4
