HELLO! I’m Diane Gail, the blogger here at Sustainable Slow Living.
SUSTAINABLE SLOW LIVING MISSION STATEMENT
I am passionate about cooking from scratch, natural homemaking, and leading a slow living lifestyle.
I’ve been dreaming of creating on online community to share those passions with for some time. It seems like the very best way to connect with like-minded people. And networking leads to learning. And learning is also a passion of mine.
So, follow along with me, and we’ll make incredibly tasty food using wholesome ingredients, immerse ourselves in all things natural homemaking, and practice the principles of slow living together.
A FEW FACTS ABOUT ME
I am a middle-aged woman who doesn’t seem to know she’s middle-aged. My inability to move a large piece of furniture around the room as I used to sometimes tries to remind me. But my brain refuses to pick up on the connection.
I grew up in small town America, and each time that I moved around this big ‘ol country of ours I moved to yet another small town. I’m a country girl at heart.
I longed for a garden my whole life. I had one in my mid 20’s. But never had a space for one after that. Last year (2020) I decided that I was going to garden in spite of the lack of space. I’ve created a monster. I can’t get enough.
I have been obsessed with food since I cooked my first meal when I was 7. I prepared a grilled cheese sandwich and served it to my Daddy. I have been cooking ever since and I’m really very talented in the kitchen. BUT, the fact remains, that I have never been prouder of a meal than I was of that grilled cheese sandwich I served my Dad.
I once purchased a little cape cod house that I furnished and decorated entirely from yard sales, second hand stores, and estate sales. It was one of my very favorite spaces in this world.
I believe wholeheartedly that the very best teacher a person can connect with is nature. I have learned to follow her lead in most everything I do. I do still fail at this practice occasionally, but it’s okay because I still have time to get it right.
The love of my life is my Olde English Bulldogge. If you dare to look at the picture below he will forever after be the love of your life too!
