a life of plenty, through living simply.

Sharing the beauty and contentment that comes from living simply and genuinely. In the garden, deep in the soil. Caring for creatures, seeing them thrive. Eating well, through consciously crafted recipes that are both nourishing and satisfying.

Slowing down. Breathing deeply. Living genuinely in full contentment and sharing it here, with you!

Life of Plenty Blogger and Owner


My name is Ruth and I live in a rural county in SW Virginia. Daily life for us is beautiful, meaningful, and inspiring and I am driven to share the beauty in choosing to live a rural lifestyle. 

I've been a vegetarian for many, many moons and my recipes reflect the years of knowledge I've gained from this palate. I am passionate about healthy living and eating without compromising satisfaction.

Have a question about animal care, gardening, or a recipe? Get in touch. I'd love to hear from you!
