I am so glad you are here! The Hollow Road is a blog all about building our home and our family in the Driftless Region in Wisconsin. It features DIY, gardening, food, and photography goodies and allows you to follow our journey through infertility, pregnancy, adopting a son, and grieving the loss of an infant son.

I started this blog in 2009 when my husband and I bought our first home together. I wanted to share our story as we made the house our home. It mainly started out as a way to show my mom {hi, mom!} what we have been up to in our house, and in our lives. However, I have realized how much others love to learn {myself included}, so I aim to reach out to as many people as I can! In 2015, we sold our home on West Street and embarked on a new renovation and farming adventure in the Driftless Region of Wisconsin.

Along with building our forever home, we have also been trying to build our family here. You can read about our infertility journey, our pregnancy story, and our struggles with the loss of our infant son in 2014. In 2015, we welcomed a son through adoption and our lives could not be more blessed.

Lastly, I recently started dabbling a bit in photography {mainly to create beautiful pictures for the blog and to capture those special family moments} and am also learning to love the experimentation involved with cooking. I would like to change my “black” thumb to a “green” thumb in my garden as well. This blog will be my sharing outlet for all things happening on The Hollow Road!
