Here’s what I am bloggging about these days!

Spaces

We are slowly working our way through establishing our simple home & small farm at the Peacock Ranch in rural South Dakota. This is our second remodel & third home in the past ten years. I love to create spaces that help our family thrive.

Style

Yes, I’m just another mom on the internet occasionally blogging her outfits. So basic, I KNOW. And yet, we all need to get dressed in the morning. Why not enjoy it a little bit more? Even though it’s outside of my comfort zone, I am enjoying leaning into learning more about personal style.

Stories

 I blog about the stories I’m reading, listening to, and watching. Additionally, I enjoy sharing what I’m finding for our kids to read, listen to and watch. It’s so important to “fill the well” so we can continue to be resilient, inspired and creative people!

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea!

I am so glad you are here. This is a lifestyle blog for friends and foes of the remodeling journey, moms who are trying to salvage what’s left of their personal style, and anyone inspired and encouraged by stories in all forms: books, podcasts, news articles, tv shows, and movies.

What do you need to know about me? I am a longtime author and adventurer. I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and Spiritual Direction. I’m also so grateful to be farm wife and mother of three. 

After a season of focusing on mothering, I’m leaning into creating, writing online, using my undergraduate degree in Agriculture from the University of Missouri (2013), and using the certificate I recently completed in Spiritual Direction from Sioux Falls Seminary (2021).

I’ll be sharing here along the way to whatever unfolds next. It’s an honor to share my creations and stories with you. I hope they serve you well!

Learning about Managing Stress Cycles during the Covid-19 Pandemic

20+ hardworking items to consider storing under the sink

A Short Story I don't know about you, but I always feel like the items we tend to keep under the kitchen sink seem to be hard to reach and frequently needed. This problem has bothered me for years. In our first farmhouse, I remember I kept several things in a cleaning...
