    Hi Theresa. 🙂
    I live in Perth, Australia and I love listening to your podcast. I’m really new to all this so I wouldn’t call myself a homesteader yet by any means but I scroll through all your casts and pick out my favourites – all the ones to do with bees and chooks!!! I was listening to the goal setting one, though, and heard you reference the Konmari episode and, well, I devoured it!! I’ve just ordered the hardcover book (we can’t get the audiobook in Australia yet) and I can’t wait to get started. Hearing you speak about it in a practical way and how it can pertain to a homestead really turned a switch on in my head. Thank you so much for featuring it! I love your work and the friendliness of your beautiful voice. You make me feel my 5 year plan is possible!
