FoC 102: New Year, Same Us; or Why Not To Make New Year’s Resolutions During the Twelve Days of Christmas with Rosie Hill

We’ve got a treat for you because in this first episode of 2019 we are chatting with the lovely Rosie Hill, homeschooling mom of six with one on the way, voice behind popular site A Blog for My Mom, homesteader, and generally fabulous and fun gal!

Rosie’s family lives in a 19th century farmhouse an hour outside of Washington, DC so we had to talk about rural live versus urban life and which natural predators we are most worried will attack our kids (obviously). We also did some real talk about the twelve days of Christmas and how moms might not be feeling joyous due to all the work it takes to coordinate the holidays for their families.

And since we just entered a new year we discussed the whole idea of new year’s resolutions/word of the year/goals and whether we do them, what worked for us in 2018, what never works for us, and some things we want to shoot for in 2019.

So grab a cup of tea (and somebody please help Christy with her lunch dilemma)!
