Welcome to Backwoods Haven! Thank you for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about who I am and what this blog is all about.
My name is Sarah, I grew up in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas with my parents and two sisters. Growing up my parents made our home a safe place. My sisters and I never knew when the money was scarce. We just knew we had so much to be thankful for. We gave God all the glory. Mom always had homemade food cooking and coffee brewing. This is what home was to me.
My husband, Kyle and I, bought our first home eleven months after we were married. I knew that I wanted to provide him and our future family with that same feeling of home that I grew up with. Our home needed a lot of work, but I could see all the potential that it had. We still have so many projects that we would like to do. But most importantly, I want to create a Haven.
Take a Before and After look of our home HERE!
Our home is not ready for a photo shoot or Pinterest perfect. This is a place I want to share our life and home with you and show you that it doesn’t have to be the most expensive and perfect home to have a haven for your family. I want to create a space that is peaceful and calm, a space that is inviting where we can make special memories.
I hope I can inspire and encourage others through our journey. So follow along for DIY projects, makeovers, decorating inspiration, and making our house a home. I will document all the projects and our life, right here on the blog.
