Ever dream of leaving your home in the city or ‘burbs and living the rustic country life? We certainly have, which is how we initially fell in love with the Instagram feed of Kelci Potter, the single mother of two and founder of gold-centric jewelry brand Shepherdess. Filled with baby goats, rainbows, and children (Taj, 7, and Sparrow, 4) scampering through fields, we knew we had to track down the Santa Cruz-based mama and check out her life in the flesh. Clearly, it didn’t disappoint, resulting in our biggest slideshow ever (67 images!), below. Keep clicking to take it all in, plus hear about her unique and earthy take on motherhood, style, and the pros and cons of going off grid.
