If you are adding to our list, thank you for sharing your homesteading, homemaking, and homeschooling posts with us. It’s so much fun to read your hints, tips, and happenings. We hope you have fun exploring all the great ideas everyone has shared with us.

This Week

This week marks Oak Hill Homestead blog's 11th blog birthday! Can you believe it? I've been blogging here for eleven years! (I know, I said that already but it's pretty exciting to me.) You can read more about it here.

And next week will be the two-year anniversary of the Simple Homestead blog hop. All sorts of celebrating is going on around here! Be sure to be here next week so you won't miss your chance at an amazingly SWEET giveaway worth over $50 value!
