About Me!


Hi, I'm Amy Hyink!  

I'm in my mid twenties, and I live in Temple, Texas.  I live with my husband Parker and two very interesting Canine roommates Abby and Banana.  I created Dabbling Domesticity as a lifestyle blog to document things I make, grow, cook, and discover. 

I have always had a fascination with domesticity.  As a child I loved cooking, cleaning, crafting, and dreaming I was a pioneer woman.  Today, I'm bringing my childhood dreams to reality through a lifestyle that encourages self reliance.  I am constantly learning new ways to bring sustainability and comfort into my life.  On an average day I might be hanging my clothes on a line to dry, making lye soap, or milling my own flour!  It is these sort of things that give special meaning to my life, and I will always be excited to learn more.  One day Parker and I hope to play pioneer on a bigger scale by owning our own little house on the prairie!

That is me on the left... Pioneer Amy!  Jasmine is my dear friend Miranda

Thanks so much for stopping in!
