We welcome you with a grateful heart to Jayme Janelle. Where we are living simply, on purpose. We hope that you will choose to become a part of our natural minded community. We are so excited to see where this journey of life takes us as we work towards living a more sustainable, earth friendly and DIY lifestyle.
We moved onto our current homestead in Colorado the second part of 2019 with the desire for increasing our sustainability and we dove right in! Within 6 months we were living ankles deep in homesteading. We put up a pole barn, are in the progress of installing solar panels and put up fencing. We’ve purchased Nubian goats, chickens, ducks, a mini-cow, and our newest addition, Kunekune pigs. I, Jayme, developed such a strong bond with these animals that I ultimately decided for the animals as well as predominantly for our health, to stop consuming animal products. We are establishing a 2,000 sq. ft. garden to grow our own food and had planned to build an Earthship style greenhouse before years end; but we ultimately decided that a warmer climate is what our hearts truly long for. So we’ve decided instead to only add to the homestead which will directly increase the value of the property for a potential sale in the next 1-5 years. Our to do list is ever growing, faster than our list of completed tasks!
We are a family of 10. Ever and I married the winter of 2007. I already had 3 beautiful children, he had one. I had a tubal ligation after my 3rd was born. After we married we saved up the money and I flew to Kentucky for a tubal reversal surgery. It was a success! We then added four more beautiful children to the family. We now have 6 girls and 2 boys. The eldest three are now adults and all living their own journeys, and have given us two beautiful grandchildren.
We have both lived in Colorado Springs, CO for 20+ years and just recently moved out to the much smaller community in a forest near the city. After a decade of dreaming of the homesteading life, we yearned for something simpler where the kids would have plenty of room to run and play and just be kids. A place where we could have a great big garden and farm animals to provide for our family. Ever was Born in Honduras and immigrated here at 19 years old. In 2015 Ever and I started a landscaping Company called Everscapes. We are currently working hard to build our investments to allow us to liquidate our business and move on to a warmer and wetter climate. But we understand this will happen in God’s good timing, and right now, it is the landscaping business primarily providing for our family and rooting us here in Colorado. We are grateful for God’s bounty he has provided us with here.

After working as an RN for 7 years I decided to retire and stay home with our children. With six children at the time I felt I was needed more at home. We had worked hard to pay off over $108k in consumer debt and the landscaping business was booming. I’ve been a SAHM since 2016 and began homeschooling our children in 2017 after the birth of our youngest, Forrest. I relish my role of teaching my children and often they dig into my many hobbies alongside me. I have so many hobbies there’s never enough hours in the day to get through them all. I love cooking, baking, sewing, painting, crafting, gardening and of course animals!
Of all my different hobbies it is nutrition and healthy living that is most often at the forefront of my mind. So you will often find new plant based recipes here. I am also working on a cookbook that I plan to release before the end of 2020!
We have 5 of our 8 children at home. Three are grown and two have gifted us adorable grandchildren. A granddaughter and a grandson.
