A haiku captures the bare essence and beauty of a poet’s intenthaiku 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!

  1. Great “about” page! I’m also a coffee lover and live in the south, but am from Kansas City. 🙂 We have good soil, though we have gardened in clay before. 😐
    I’m a retired homeschool mom, trying to share a bit of research I did yesterday, about snow hurricanes. I found a small window of amazing history and just thought I’d go around the hs blog world and see if anyone wants or needs a bit of amazement in their hs day. So here it is:


    If you like it, help yourself. Just copypaste, if you want, and share it with your other homeschool friends, please.

    Have a great day, tough gal. 🙂

    1. Katharine, this sounds fabulous! We especially are fascinated by the weather since my husband is a meteorologist. I’ll repost your link soon! I always appreciate input and encouragement from you experienced homeschooling mamas. You give me hope 🙂

      1. Ah! There’s lotsa hope! Your WORST day is better than the best day at a ps, just because of what your children will NOT be learning. 😉

        Glad you liked this. Have fun with it.

        Wow! A weaterman! If he has old stats that would add to my post, could you send me them? Thanks! 🙂

  2. Hi Kim,
    Love your pretty site and so appreciated your commentary on the “about” page. Like you, I’m keen on the notion of slow parenting. A few years back my friend and I created Little Stars Bedtime Cards to help parents end the day with their toddlers on a good note. We seem to be of like minds so I just wanted to say hi and I look forward to reading your posts.
