Welcome to Homestead over Heels. Where a south Texan city girl can document her journey of living a modern, simple life.
I’m trying to create a life where the traditional living meets modern conveniences. Yet keeping it simple and cutting out the extra fat that seems to be making life and our spaces heavier.
I love to help clients feel confident and comfortable in their homes and offices through my personalized decor and design plans. I aim to make my plans accessible to everyone by offering on-field services to homes and businesses in the San Antonio area as well as online through my e-design services. My personalized services are available for projects of all budgets. From a one-room makeover to a full-scale home or office project I’ll be sure to make a space that works for you.
For the past 6 years, I’ve been dreaming of starting a homestead with my fiance Demetrius and our cat Willy. On this journey, I’ll challenge myself to change and update every aspect of my life, in order to get organized, prepare for my future, and create a beautiful environment.
How did it all start?
From an early age, I was repeatedly transforming my bedroom into a span of different looks. I enjoyed working around the challenges that came with sharing a room with my two sisters, who all have different styles than me. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
In 2014 my sister and I spent a week in the countryside of Jamaica where my father grew up. There I saw how simpler the people lived, and even though in poverty it seemed to just be more “quiet”. When I came back I set out to live a more quiet life and to live with less. From there I researched country living, which lead me to research about chickens (the gateway animal to everything else) and so on. And now I’m full-fledged head over heels with homesteading.
Fun Facts About Me
I spent 3 months abroad in Italy learning about historical architecture while there (and traveling as much as I could)
Speaking of travel, I love to travel and have visited 13 countries and hope to add more to that list. My top 3 to date are France, Switzerland, and Italy.
I taught myself how to cook from scratch(-ish)… I’m still learning recipes but I believe I got the basics down. I love to cook and it makes me happy when I’ve perfected a recipe.
I get excited about personal finances (Yes I follow Dave Ramsey). I’ve been into it since a teenager. Although then I did not have much to work with, now I believe I have set up our financial life so that it’s perfect for my family and easy to maintain.
About my Goals
My ultimate goal is to be as self-sustainable as I possibly can, travel often, be surrounded by the people I love, and challenge myself to be a better person for me, my family, and this planet.
