Chats With Cass | The O'Donnell Homestead

Here, we slow down. Here, we sit and chat about urban homesteading, homemaking, and slow living. We have the conversations that are difficult. We talk about life, we talk about our character, we talk about the people we hope and strive to be. We tell stories and listen with eager ears. Here, we turn back the clock a bit. Like sitting in front of the fire with your dearest loved ones. Taking the time to sip our coffee slow, and tuck into a conversation without the rush and propensity to move onto the next thing-fast and ferocious without any regard what we might be missing in the meantime. Let's learn to talk to one another again, and find the beauty in magic in conversation and storytelling. Let's Chat. Slainte!
