This morning, I read a beautiful post by my friend Tiffany Davis of ImperfectlyHappy.com. First of all, I love the title of her website. So may times as I browse homesteading websites, an image of perfection is portrayed. While we certainly want to put our best foot forward, perfection on an urban farm or homestead is neither attainable nor the goal. Rather, we are always learning, always growing, constantly adjusting, and forgiving of ourselves when things do not go as planned. When crops fail, or goats don't cooperate on the milkstand, or an unexpected cost pops up, every challenge is an opportunity to learn something new or to grow in character.
