a collection of stories, recipes, and life lessons told by three women all sharing life & a backyard. 

These are our stories of celebration and loss, hoping and striving. Our desire is to create a safe place for women + men to land. A space of encouragement and authenticity.  We hope you will join us.

Welcome to the space we share!

meet our authors:


a licensed counselor, an artist, and a homeschooling foster mom

wives & mothers, all in different seasons, but each with a heart for a simpler way of living 

Jana is an empty nester, licensed counselor, and full time grandma who loves hosting gatherings and a good renovation project. She is our resident matriarch and source of wisdom, as is evident in the blogs she writes. Alyssa is a musician's wife, design student, and stay at home mama to an energetic two year old boy - the same little toddler who made Jana a grandmother. (If you didn't catch that, Alyssa is Jana's daughter.) She is blessed to live next door to her parents and share life on a daily basis. Amber and her sweet family made the space complete when they moved into the house behind Alyssa's. She homeschool's her two beautiful daughters and currently fosters a sweet baby girl. She is a crunchy, soap-making wife and mom with all the natural remedies up her sleeve.
