I've not forgotten to post. I've just been incredibly busy! I want to announce...last Saturday night I was crowned Elegant Ms. US United! I hold a national title! The philanthropy for US United is breast cancer research. My platform is Microfarming for Sustainability. I am still in shock! I have worked so hard for my title for several years. I almost didn't compete this year. I felt different, though. As you will see in future photos, I was completely shocked. I had tough competition this year. I am dedicated to supporting breast cancer patients and research, and I look forward to teaching people about microfarming and chickens and how to bring the farm back into our lives. If you had asked me five years ago, I wouldn't have a clue about urban homesteading, but now, I think about sharing it with all.
Today I was able to participate in our local fall festival. I enjoyed meeting other people who want to learn about microfarming, chicken farming, and sustainability. It was a lot of fun hanging out in my community.
