Welcome! I’m Micheon from A Lovely Place Called Home! I’m passionate about educating people about homesteading, helping others find encouragement and confidence in their homes, and I create inspiring content that promotes a lovely home no matter where you are.
Hey there, I’m Micheon!
Welcome to my blog; A Lovely Place Called Home! This is the place I share my passions, creativity and my life as an off grid stay-at-home and work-from-home wife and mother.
We live in the canadian wilderness, wayyy back in the forest. We are completely off grid, meaning we get our power from the sun, catch rainwater and also collect water from our river, we heat using wood harvested from our property and live in the tiny house on wheels that we built ourselves.
We vegetable garden, own dairy cows, keep ducks for meat and eggs, a few layer chickens to keep it interesting, and raise free range heritage pigs. We are currently working on building out pastures, planting an orchard, and figuring out how to keep the abundance of black bear from getting into the feed bins!
Our home is full of energy and creativity. We are a homeschooling (more like life schooling/forest schooling) family of six, and our four children were born within five years of each other! Its safe to say that my house is NEVER fully clean, and I haven’t gotten a full nights sleep in forever. But the love is abundant, and my children are loved and cherished.
Some more about Me:
I’m the wife to the man I met when I was just fifteen years old! We were best friends for almost three years before we started dating, and we got married shortly after. He’s still my best friend and we do almost everything together. From motor sports, to building stuff, to playing card games late at night after the kids have fallen asleep. We love being together! He even milks the cow with me. And can I just say there’s nothing better than milking a cow with your best friend.
I grew up in the forest and spent my childhood either playing outside in the woods with my little sister, or watching/helping build our family log home. I look back on my childhood with so many fond memories, I was (and still am!) truly blessed.
Creating things is a deep passion of mine. Whether that be by designing, crafting, homesteading, cooking, or any other way I can use my imagination! I hope to share that creativity with others and help them create a lovely home as well.
