About Us


We are the Cotten Patch!

I’m Carrie, Jesus loving, kid wrangling, home managing, and self appointed Mayor of my crazy town crew.  My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for almost 20 years and have 4 beautiful cherubs ranging from 16 to 4 years of age.

We met in college, spent our first year of marriage in Alaska (I know, right!!), lived in Texas for the next 15 years and then all of the sudden felt a strong and crazy call to move to the mountains!  We have survived a tour in the army, owned a petting zoo/pony ride business, handyman business, a photography business, and are both certified teachers. So, you can imagine we have learned a LOT of lessons along the way and have quite a lot of stories to tell.

One day we hope to have a working homestead with a garden that actually produces food we can eat (our thumbs aren’t even a slight shade of green), and a tiny house that we built ourselves.  Until then, I invite you in to our journey!

Life is crazy, but God is good.  So my little blog is about the things I love most – faith, family, farming, and fun!   Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something interesting!
