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
