A haiku captures the bare essence and beauty of a poet’s intent. haiku homestead is a lifestyle blog about home and hearth minus all of the fluff. Its about living lightly with intention, purpose, and joy. Its a yearning for poetry in motion in normal, regular everyday life.
Hi! I’m Kim. I guess if anyone could be labeled a “professional homemaker”, it could be me! Hilarious. Not that degrees mean that much, but I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing with a specialty focus in Maternal and Child Health. After a career burnout many years ago, I studied Interior Architecture and Design at UCLA and dabbled in design with some of the best hospitality (think hotels, spas and restaurants) greats in Los Angeles. My amazing hubbie has a career that has taken us to many interesting parts of the US and as a result, I’ve adapted and have designed everything from homes to commercial spaces to barns and chicken coops! We have lived on the East Coast, the West Coast and many places in between (including the Midwest and a very remote area of Montana). Currently, our digs are in the Southwest and we are adapting beautifully to high desert living. I’ve also been a stay at home mom, work at home mom, and soon-to- be full time working mom as I return to my BSN roots to help moms and babies as a Lactation Consultant. I do still love to play with design, though, so this blog is my hobby to mess around with when I have the time (hint hint…please read between the lines and know that I just can’t respond to many comments or inquiries)
Thanks for popping in. I’m so glad you’re here!
