leaf and learn

Hello! We're the Morans.

We left the big city suburbs to live a simpler life in the forest with our kids - and we're documenting our adventures online!

Maybe you're interested in making a similar move, too. Maybe, like us, you're curious about becoming more self-sufficient, learning skills, and being closer to nature. 

We'd love to bring you along with us. Our hope is that by sharing our stories, mistakes, and discoveries, your path might be a little smoother. At the very least, we hope to inspire you. 

Thank you for being here!

Taylor,  Nick, + the boys
