About karibundy13

Who I am cannot be summed up in the confines of this tiny little blue text box. My name is Kari, and I'm one of the main characters in this ever-changing story called my life. My husband, Bryce, and our children (four in total- Ella, Lucy, Mason- who lives in Heaven, and Ollie) live this crazy life where we actually spend like all of our time together at home. We are passionate about natural living, natural parenting, breastfeeding, cooking, crocheting, art, children, etc, etc. Oh yeah-- and we just a bought land, 4 dozen chickens, 2 baby goats and thousand upon thousands of vegetable/fruit seeds with zero farm experience whatsoever. This is our story. This is our adventure <3
