Simple Homestead blog hop #153

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! I'm always glad to see you when we get together for another linky party. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

I hope you have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared each week. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

Follow along on our self-reliant journey in May

Next month I'm joining other homesteading and self-reliant bloggers on a challenge to be more self-reliant. From growing and preserving to saving money, creating and foraging, we'll share our successes (and failures) all month long - and we'll encourage you to make changes in your life too. I'll be sharing some behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram too. Don't miss these posts next month!

Blog Birthday

Also in May we'll be celebrating Oak Hill Homestead's twelfth blog birthday! Amazing, isn't it? Twelve years of sharing my life with you - I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have! I'll have some great giveaways to celebrate. So you don't miss them, you can follow along on Facebook and Instagram, and sign up to receive my weekly-ish newsletter too.
