How We Became Roots and Dreams

Once upon a time, I never would have imagined that I would be living in the midwest. Nevermind on five acres a decent distance from any sort of town.

In fact, I always pictured myself living in a high rise in a big city.

But the truth of the matter is, after downsizing and living in our school bus conversion/tiny house on wheels, things seemed a lot simpler and quieter out in the middle of nowhere.

Nowadays, Sally the Blue Bus sits on our homestead, waiting for a revival as a guest house. And roaming the farm, you'll find us, the Roots & Dreams Family.

So, how'd we end up in Northwest Missouri?

Before the homestead, before the bus, there was the two of us. A couple who lived paycheck to paycheck, working jobs we hated, never seeing each other, while trying to raise our darling kidlets.

We made the big leap to deciding that I would start my own business and become a stay at home mom. If you're already scraping by, why not make it worthwhile?

Soon enough, my business was pulling in more income than his job. So, we made the next big leap: he quit his job and became a stay at home dad. And to make it work? We were going to pay off all of our debt, convert a school bus into a tiny home, and live as frugally as possible so we could keep going.

And we did it through tons of support from family and friends (though, not all were so supportive!)

Despite tiny house life appearing to be magic and unicorns and rainbows, it really isn't for everyone. In fact, we found that two out of our tribe of six family members really couldn't dig it. And that's when we started to look for our little slice of rural living.

Here we are.
