Greetings from the Pacific Northwest! I’m Margo — but you can call me Marge, all my friends do. I’m a 20-something hopeful homesteader and recent first-time homeowner of a little house on 3 rural acres.

My husband and I have one anxious corgi and two lively cats. We are both professional word nerds — he’s an English teacher, and I’m an editor — who met in college. He complimented me on the Misfits shirt I was wearing, and, well, the rest is history.

I have a passion for sourdough, dahlias, and DIYing it. I’m a self-proclaimed bookworm, an avid thrifter, and short overalls advocate. I love plants a little too much and horror rock even more. (But I don’t only listen to Danzig, I swear!) And I have Big Plans™ for our little slice of land.

These are my humble offerings from a piece of Internet real estate I call Rock Homesteady, chock full of DIYs, recipes, music, musings, and mishaps along the way. I do hope you stick around a while. Let’s learn together.
