Nicole SpringNicole Spring is the mama to a Waldorf homeschooling, nature-loving, garden harvesting, simple living, organic-powered family just trying to remember the beauty of the simple things every day. After what feels like a lifetime of wishing and planning, she is finally living out her frontier dreams with her own little Pevensie tribe of four children (but hopes to adopt more!) on a homestead amongst the Amish in Pennsylvania. Nicole believes in compassion and empathy and feels they will help make our world a better place. She is a people-loving, introverted, unorganized mess and doesn't try to hide it. Thankfully, knitting, canning, homesteading work, and soothing crafts calm her nerves. You can usually find her outside wrangling her feathered flock or inside, creating herbal remedies and nature crafts - always with a camera in hand to document her days so she may look back at these glorious yet exhausting times. @frontierdreamsfrontierdreams.blogspot.com

Hannah Walton

Hannah WaltonHannah lives in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter, and two dogs. She previously worked in the software industry before following her heart to be a stay-at-home mom (who ironically almost never "just stays at home").  She is a big believer that there is "no such thing as bad weather" and can be found almost daily exploring the marvelous mountains and forests around her home. Though, to be honest, some of her favorite days are spent with falling snow, hot tea, blankets, and reading books with her daughter by the fire. She is an advocate for natural parenting, raising children to be stewards and lovers of the earth, and sustainable living. She hopes that by sharing her story, others will be inspired to connect with their inner #EcoParent. @hannahbandanarama
