Another Blog – Welcome Farming For Bliss


Basically, I have two passions in life (well ok I have many) obstacle racing and food. as obstacle racing and writing about it has shifted from a hobby to my full-time job my hobby of food exploration has expanded. From the beginning of this blog I have written about CSA’s, gardening, some recipes, seasonal eating, food (both healthy and unhealthy) and more food. Over time this blog has taken on it’s own voice, tone and gathering of obstacle racing knowledge and is less about my personal day-to-day life and more about the people and the obstacle racing industry as a whole.


During my time of writing Dirt in Your Skirt another adventure has been rising on the side, if you follow my Instagram and Twitter you can see that adventure. My partner Forest and I have ventured further and further down the rabbit hole of urban farming/urban gardening/urban homesteading/permaculture gardening. As we have been doing so we have learned and shared some of the experience. Parts have been on this blog and much of it has been on Instagram. For the moment that is not changing in terms of Instagram and Twitter but for the blog it’s time to separate the job of obstacle racing and the hobby of urban farming.


Both have led to a greater consciousness expansion and both actually teach me many lessons that overlap each other. In fact, working in the backyard moving around straw bails, bags of chicken feed, compost, and moving dirt are all forms of OCR training. Just as healthy food, local food, all have positive effects on my healthy and ultimately race day performance. But the day has come to separate the two some so that work can continue to be work and hobbies can grow.

    • Country life... brightened by a few simple tulips 🌷Beauty in simplicity. It’s fascinating the story of the tulip, a simple flower with no scent, and yet at one time caused such a stir
    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Quiet night in a quiet town living a quiet life.
    • Making a house... a home. Everyday I’m filled with gratitude.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.
2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.
We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
