The Homestead is in a Magazine!

Hey there friend!

I’m hoping you had a wonderful weekend! We spent a lot of our weekend outside, so we were lucky to get to take in all of the beautiful leaves everywhere we went. It’s remarkable how many shades of orange, red, and yellow there are and how collectively the trees are like a bouquet of fall flowers-just bigger! While the temps have decided to take a plunge, we have yet to turn on our heat! We are holding out until those chilly nights and days are here to stay. So, until then, we are layering up and enjoying some time together around the fire in the evening and early mornings. As for our hens, they too are trying to adjust so we have loaded them up with some straw and plenty of food to help them through. Have you cranked up the heat at your home?

There have been a lot of fun new things happening out here in the way of sharing out home’s story as well as our journey out here to the middle of nowhere. I’m excited that all of you will be able to find my latest work online or in participating stores!

Where to read my latest work.

This past week Link2Us Magazine published their Fall ’22 issue and it includes an article I wrote titled, Reawakening Traditions at the Homestead.

You can request a digital copy here or you can pick up a copy at your local Barnes and Nobles, Kroger, Books a Million, Fred Meyers stores, Albertsons, Hyvee, Kmart, and Amazon.

In addition, you can also read another article I wrote, Restoration in the Farmhouse, about how we found our way out here to the country on Make Me Available which is a website out of London, England.

Grounded in the middle podcast

If you’re on the go this week, you can tune into this week’s latest episode on Grounded in the Middle podcast. Have you thought about your reputation lately? How about the legacy you will one day leave behind? Today I’m sharing some thoughts around the two and how maybe a shift in our mindset from reputation to legacy could help us find ourselves a bit more grounded in who we are and focus on what’s truly important to us. After you tune in, I’d appreciate if you would rate the podcast. It will help others, like you, find my podcast. You can scroll down just a bit on this page to listen in.

New! Farmhouse Storyteller Playlist.

If you’d like to tune in to what I’m listening to out here in the middle, you can join me on Spotify where I have a playlist titled, Farmhouse Storyteller. You can easily find the station by directly clicking play to the right or searching for Farmhouse Storyteller on the Spotify app.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Johnny + Christina Cison-What it's like to go against the grain. Grounded in the Middle.

Have you ever heard of the Old House community? If you aren't familiar, there is a large social media community who own or just love old houses and every day they gather around the world to chat about their experiences and share what they've learned about restoring and living in their old house. In today's episode, you're going to get to meet Johnny and Christian from the account @ourcornerofcurrituck and who were also one of my first old house friends when we moved out here to the middle. They are opening up today on why they chose to leave suburbia and their new build home for old house life and homesteading.
