Simple Homestead blog hop #154

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.

Celebrate Oak Hill Homestead's blog birthday!

Mother's Day will also be my blog's 12th birthday! To celebrate I'll be holding some fun giveaways next week, beginning Monday, May 7th. Be sure to visit the blog daily for the latest giveaway and enter for your chance to win.

I hope you'll also join us for the May Self-Reliance Challenge. I'm teaming up with some awesome bloggers (including Nancy who is one of our hop co-hostesses) to encourage and challenge you to take steps in your life towards greater self-sufficiency this month. We'll share information, successes and maybe even some failures. You'll find more information about the challenge here and my post about goal-setting here.
