Welcome to The Tiny Hearth
My name is Fae Moon and I am the resident blogger here at The Tiny Hearth. Let me start off by telling you a little bit about who I am and what you’ll find here at TTH.
I am a wife, mother, and soon-to-be grandmother (our little bundle of Wee Witchy joy is due on March 2, 2014 ~ which happens to be the day after my birthday, too).
I have been blogging off and on, it seems, since blogging began, but didn’t begin to take it seriously until about 3 years ago when I found myself caring for my dying mother and her husband that was slowly going insane. That blog, unfortunately, disappeared in a maintenance mishap and even the techy guys where I was hosting at the time couldn’t make it come back. Since then, I have floated around from place to place, never quite feeling at home anywhere else and too disheartened to try to revamp my lost blog (let me tell you, that was over a year of hard work, writing, socializing and making a name for myself).
Now, after nearly 20 years together, Draco (my husband and the love of my life) and I, find ourselves on the brink of a completely different life.
Witchlet is our only child and she has been gone from home for years now, and suddenly we find ourselves about to be grandparents! That means that the pitter-patter of Wee Witchy Feet will once again return to our hearth.
Draco has frequently worked jobs with unpredictable hours, and for the last 2 years, it seems he has spent more time out of town than at home and he has just changed jobs to one with a set schedule and days that is local.
In addition to all of that, for the last 4 years, we have mostly lived with other people. We gave up our place nearly 4 years ago to care for my parents and then we moved in with a friend of ours and our lives have been reduced to a bedroom for those 4 years.
Within the next month or so, we will find ourselves moving into a camper and putting it on a semi-permanent site about 15 minutes from Draco’s new job.
I have to admit, I have teetered between excited and nervous, but I have found a number of sites recently about living in small spaces and making it work, so now I am filled with confidence and excitement over this next phase of our lives.
In The Tiny Hearth, you will find stories about our lives and our family, recipes, tips for living and growing plants in small spaces, and frugal living. You will also hear a lot about my favorite little 4-legged baby, my Pug, who is also my familiar.
It also just so happens that Draco and I consider ourselves Pagans. Now don’t get all nervous. It’s most likely not what you think (it’s not what most non-pagans think it is). Our practice is really very different from what I think most Pagans do. I am what I consider a Hearth Witch, or Kitchen Witch, when means that my focus is on my home, my family, cooking and cleaning.
I also do a handful of crafts and I intend to start doing a few more that I may share from time to time.
I’m very excited to have this chance to spend some time with all of you and I look forward to growing a community of people around this blog! I hope you come to enjoy your time here as much as I do!
