Hi! Welcome to our little patch of suburbia.

Where the kids don’t go to school, the backyard is full of home grown food, and the occupants are away on a road trip as often as they can get one.

If words like feminism, unschooling, real food, home education, ASD, radical homemaking, travel with kids, body positivity, connected parenting, homebirth, and art with kids pique your interest then you’ve come to the right place.

I’m Shae. I’m unashamedly team hippy la la, but with a dose of sarcasm. I love the free-range life, but promise not to gloss over the tricky bits.

I totally drink kombucha but sometimes I put vodka in it.


Want to hang around and chat?

Get comfy, I’ll fire up the coffee machine.

I’ve known you on twitter and now Instagram and now I’m totally head over heals for you and yours. HOLY MOLY. You had to go and love Stephen King, too? Really? Why can’t we be neighbors? Oh, yeah, I’m in Maine USA. So totally bummed. You have no idea.

I’m like your serious fangirl so this comment is my favorite.

Stephen King!! I have worn out books rereading them! So I plan to get to Maine before I die so I can just walk by his house.
And now I’ll be dropping in on the Bradstreet farm for a cuppa xoxo

Hi Shae,
Love your website/blog – where is the “follow me” button?
We are a travelling homeschooling family….I flirt with unschooling and then panic and pull out the math u see :)
Would love to catch up for a cuppa when we eventually get to your neck of the woods.

Hi Shae, stumbled across your blog and it seems like the kinda thing I’d like to read, but I like to start at the beginning, and I’m having trouble finding the archives… Am I just missing them?
