You can reclaim the peace and beauty you want in your home by making a few simple changes.
So if you’re ready to trade overwhelm, chaos, and frustration for peace, organization, and order…
You’re in the right place.
Welcome to Homemaker and Happy! This a place where I share my own homemaking journey, tips and tricks to help you in you journey, family-friendly activities, and yummy recipes.
My husband, Parker, and I live in a small, one-stoplight town in Arkansas. As we dream of running our own cattle, managing home-based businesses, and enjoying peaceful sunsets on several acres of land, we’re taking the time to learn the skills we know will benefit us later.
My skill set now includes how to budget, how to establish healthy routines, and how to cook easy and clean meals. And don’t forget my homemaking hacks! I can help you with laundry routines, meal planning, gift ideas, family-friendly activities, organization, and so much more!
I’ve lived in Arkansas since I was a girl and I never thought I would be a stay-at-home mom. I originally wanted to be a career journalist.
My husband is a first responder and I am a stay-at-home mom. We have figured out how to live on one income by being frugal and patient. I have found ways to exercise my talents (and even make a profit from them!) with DIY crafts, beauty products, and more.
I love natural remedies and from-scratch meals. Food is incredible!
My husband and I run an urban homestead in our backyard. We manage a 20 egg chickens all year round, and a garden and meat chickens in the summers. We are passionate about where our food comes from and we try to source all of our food as locally as we can.

Fun facts about me:
In fifth grade, I was supposed to represent my middle school in the county spelling bee, but I backed out. The runner up ended up competing.
My daughter is the first girl born to my husband’s family in three generations.
It’s always been a dream of mine to write a book!
While in college, I spent a month out of my summer teaching English in another country!
Why “Homemaker and Happy”?
When I became a full-time homemaker, I struggled with the feeling that one of my primary contributions to my home was in making money. I spent a few nights crying to my husband because I felt like that’s were some of my best talents were executed.
I wasted so much time believing that lie.
But I’m thankful I was able to work through it all. Because I haven’t been able to find a greater purpose anywhere else.
