family shot

Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by… and for your interest in my blog, my business, and my brand. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and share my passion for simple-living with you.

I try REALLY hard to respond to all emails, Facebook messages, and questions in a timely fashion (usually within 24 hours) so if you ask, I will most likely answer! If you don’t hear from me after a couple days, feel free to leave another comment, send another email, or message me on Facebook. I’m not ignoring you on purpose.

The fastest way to get a response from me is to leave your question in the comment section of whatever blog post you have a question about. When I answer, you’ll get an email notifying you of my response and everyone else who reads the comment will get the answer too — so it usually saves me time answering other similar questions in the future!

On this page, you’ll find lots of ways to contact and connect with me — as well as a list of frequently asked questions (which might be helpful to read before contacting me). You can also read more about me here.

Thanks so much for your continued support, I can’t wait to hear from you!

Questions about Starting a Business/Blog:

I receive many emails every day from readers interested in starting a business and/or a blog — and while I would love to help everyone for free… I just can’t!

If you’re interested in starting a blog, read this post and then all of these posts!

If you’re interested in starting a business, read this post.

If you still have questions, feel free to send me a quick email. If I can respond in a few minutes, I will — otherwise we can set up a coaching appointment to take a more in-depth look at your questions.

Questions about my Virtual Assistant Services:

If you’re looking to hire a VA, please feel free to email me. If I’m not available, I can most likely find another qualified VA to help you out.

If you’re interested in becoming a VA, read this post.

If you’re wondering how I became a VA, I unfortunately don’t have a great answer! I kind of “fell” into doing this type of work and soon realized how much I loved it!

If you’re interested in talking more about  my VA work, I’d be happy to set up a coaching appointment with you to talk more!

Questions about our Farmhouse:

If you have a question about something pertaining to our farmhouse, message me on Facebook. If you don’t find your answer, feel free to send me an email.

General Questions:

If you have a general question about a recipe, organizing tip, house project, etc. please just leave a comment on that specific post. I am very diligent about responding to comments that ask questions — and my response will automatically be sent to you as an email.

Plus, when I respond, my answers will also be visible to everyone else who reads that post in the future, which might then answer that same question for others.

Question about Guest Blogging:

I currently don’t accept many guest posts; however, if you have a topic you think might be of interest, please send me an email with the post attached in a Word document.  

I will NOT accept any guest posts that are submitted for SEO links and all submissions must be 100% original and not published anywhere else on the web.

If you would like me to write a guest post for your site, please email me with that request. Due to time constraints, I usually don’t accept unpaid guest posts — but I’m always looking for new writing opportunities so feel free to pitch me your ideas!

Questions about a Recipe:

If you’re looking for a specific recipe, first check my virtual recipe boxIf you don’t find what you’re looking for, it’s probably not a recipe I’ve posted yet.

Please note that I don’t provide dietary or nutritional information for any of my recipes, and due to time constraints, I don’t plan to start 🙂

Would you like me to feature one of your recipes? Email it to me with the word “Recipe” in the subject line. I’ll test it out and let you know if I would like to feature it — and of course, I’ll give you credit if I do.

 Questions about anything else:

Depending on the nature of the question, I’ll do my best to answer it — so just send me an email!
