About Us

Hi! I'm so glad you joined us.

I'm Kelli. And I'm the main voice of this blog. As in, I do 99.9% of the writing.

However, add my Homestud (John) …

...and our dogs (Manny and Bruce)...

... and you get us. The Sustainable Couple. We're an everyday, Iowa born-and-raised couple, and we always keep it real.

I am a former high school teacher and educational mentor, and I currently work at a non-profit nature center. John is an electrician who spends much of his time on the road. (Read about that here and here.) We've lived a pretty traditional life, although I quit my full-time teaching gig to travel with John. (You can read more about that here and here and here.) Now, we've settled into our tiny log home in the middle of the woods. Our dream of having an urban farm was accomplished, so now we are scaling up and focusing on things that matter to us:
  • Sustainable living. This includes growing a ton of food, keeping chickens and honeybees, composting, vermicomposting, and cooking from scratch. 
  • Using essential oils, better lifestyle choices, and physical activity to maintain our health and wellness. 
  • We believe in living a self-sufficient lifestyle (mentally and physically) and are slowly transforming our practices to encompass those beliefs. We are the ultimate DIYers. 
  • We dig simple, frugal living. 

With love,
John and Kelli
