Slice of Haven
Welcome to Slice of Haven, a funny little blog with lots of funny little stories about my family’s life in the country. You’ll also find posts here about my crazy life in general, including my reading lists, recaps, and yearly outlooks.
My family moved to Safe Haven Farm in 1994, and I’ve grown up having adventures in our old 1800s-era schoolhouse, raising sheep and one psychotic goat, and trying to keep track of about half a million cats. As a child, I’d dreamed I could live at the farm and write for a living; as an adult, I’ve been blessed enough to see that dream come true.
So, welcome to Safe Haven Farm, where the door’s always open, the coffee’s always hot, and you can trip over a cat at any moment.
