• Leaping into 2021

    January 1, 2021Brandy

    Raise your hand if you are beyond ready to leave 2020 in the dust???? It has been the weirdest of weird years. Everyone has felt the strain as we navigated through an ongoing pandemic. It has been a year of heartbreak and hardship… but yet there has also been so many beautiful moments. It is in the hardest of times that the human spirit shines through. Personally, it was a big year of transition. I passed the bar exam, started my full time job, bought a farm, moved, jumped into homesteading and rebranded my social media to match this new…

  • Fuel Your Best Self: 5 Ways I am Improving the Food Quality I Ingest

    December 30, 2020Brandy

    Something I have felt really motivated to do this past year is to improve the quality of the food I am eating. That does not mean I just buy organically labeled food and call it a day.

  • Our First Season of Chickens

    December 4, 2020Brandy

    Isn’t it ironic that I was raised on an 80 acre farm in the heart of Amish and Mennonite country and yet, I never owned a chicken nor lived on the same property as chickens? My mother is deathly afraid of birds and that fear was passed on to both my sister and I. I don’t even remember a “why” but I have always thoroughly hated and been equally terrified of all feathered things. The chicken barn at the county fair? Wouldn’t get within 20 feet of it. I wanted NOTHING to do with birds. Nothing. Meanwhile, my dear husband…

  • Why I started this blog

    November 28, 2020Brandy

    Hello! Welcome to The Stylish Homestead. Some of you might know me from my blog, The Legal Duchess, and I appreciate you following along. If you are totally new, welcome! I started blogging back when I started law school as a creative outlet and a way to fill a void in the online market as there were very few law school specific bloggers out there.

After graduating law school and passing the bar exam, I just felt…
