If you're on this page, you must be curious what this blog is all about. Well you see, its about a little bit of everything. I write when something big happens in my world, when I have been lost in thought about something, or when I just have nothing better to do. I share little bits of my life, and the life of my family, through my writings.

So... who am I?

My name is Summer. I am a 40-something married mom. I have 3 kids from a previous marriage, and 3 step daughters, all of which are grown or nearly grown. My husband and I have a son together who is 3 years old. My husband works full time and I stay home with the kiddos, although I’ve been working on opening my own dog boarding kennel for a few months now. At this stage in life, we only have a couple of the older kids living with us, and our little one of course. Our youngest has some special needs, which is a whole new world for us. So we’re learning and growing with him.

  • I am a hippie at heart, as my blog title may suggest. I love nature and Mother Earth, and want the best for humanity, though I don't think the rest of humanity really cares for themselves most of the time.

  • Big Billy Strings enthusiast. Check out my YouTube for videos from the shows I've been to.

  • I'm a supporter of self-expression, and am heavily tattooed. I've had just about every hair style and color possible. I used to have quite a few piercings but I only wear a couple of them nowadays.

  • I have always practiced attachment parenting: baby wearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, etc. Our youngest still sleeps with us, and breastfed until he was about 29 months old.

  • I’m not into organized religion but I’m spiritual/scientific.

  • I’m very left-leaning in terms of politics, but I don’t like to incorporate a lot of political topics into my blog.

  • I was born female and identify as female, but I’m very much a tomboy. I am bisexual, but am much more attracted to women. I may get into that in a blog post or two at some point.

If you have any questions about me or my blog, or if you’d like to comment or contact me privately, please email me at hippiemom42 @ gmail.com. Otherwise, comments are open on all posts and I check them regularly.

Oh… and if you like what you see/read, give me a follow on my Facebook page and/or my Instagram feed.

I hope to seeya around!
