Hi! Welcome to Simply Homemade Life. I’m Nikki — a Christian, a Wife, and a Mom.
Meet My Family
My family is full of love, giggles, and lots of laundry. M and I married in 2009 at ages 19 (me) and 20 (him). We spent our early adulthood traveling and building our life together attending college (me) and an apprenticeship (him). In 2014 our family expanded with the birth of P. Then in 2015 we moved to the greater Pittsburgh area from the great southern state of Kentucky–talk about culture shock! About 20 months after P was born, E joined us in our misadventures in 2016 and life has been (the best) chaos since.
I’m an avid essential “oiler” and a fan of doing things the old fashioned way–with God and Grit! I’m notoriously stubborn, but am told I have a huge heart. I’ve been a social worker, children’s librarian, and stay at home mom. I love all things domestic–even if my house doesn’t always reflect it with two toddlers running around (can I get an Amen?!). Through trial and manyyyy errors, have determined that God’s purpose for me is at home. I love reading, history, and teaching others new things.
With this website I hope to share my abundant life with you through God’s love, tips and tricks for living chemical free, household hacks, and whatever else I may fancy at the moment. I’m not a perfect mother, wife, or child of God–but I strive to be my best and laugh at my mistakes along the way.
I hope you’ll join me!
