Free to be you

About Me

Free to be unique As we celebrate another 4th of July, America’s Independence Day we are reminded of freedom. Freedom, for us, as a family of military veterans, we do not take for granted. Having seen what true oppression, looks like, and I promise you once you see that you can never forget. I will […]

Welcome baby #5!

New baby

I haven’t posted much in the last few weeks, and I apologize for the temporary absence. June is/was baby month (and secretly I’ll share I’m not a patient person at the end of a pregnancy). I know many moms who say they “loved being pregnant”, well not me. When you are 5’4″ and grow larger […]

Stop trying to do it all

Do it all

Stop trying to do it all, and start accomplishing more  Busy! Life is busy! Am I right? And it seems that it is only getting more so. The busier we get the less we live. But we tell ourselves I have to do X, Y, and Z or everything falls apart right? Trust me I […]

March Round-Up (2017)

March has come and gone, Spring has officially started, and all of life is in full swing. Planting, transplanting, watering, animals, milking, fence mending, so much is here and life is coming anew once again. We can once again look forward to line dryed laundry, sprinkler days, shorts and flip-flops, flowers blooming, melons to eat, […]

February Round-Up (2017)

February Round-Up 2017

Lawdy, Lawdy y’all, February was a bear. We got a lot happening mixed with sickness that just keeps coming around. We got so much planted and growing, and spring just around the corner. We got massive amounts of birds chirping and nests being cleaned out for a new season of life to begin. We had […]

December Round-Up

December Round-Up

December is ending, oh man where does time go? A whole year, 2016 in the rear view mirror. I usually just like to take one month at a time but in December is like a moment where you realize it’s time to put another year in the books. Time to reflect on the past. Also […]

October Round-Up

October round-up

October Round-Up October is fading and the leaves are falling. And I got to be honest, I know many people love fall, the changing colors, the brisk air, sweater and boot weather, not me. It kinda feels like it’s the dying of the year, as fall slips to winter. I really just want to be […]

Time Flies

Time flies, raise the slowly

Time flies: raise them slowly So much about our lives has dramatically changed, in the last year. We have moved, new house, new homestead, new farm animals, new opportunities, But the biggest part was Mason, our 4th child (the new kid on the block) Mason, big man (or really the littlest) he is now ONE!

September Round-Up

round up

September Round-Up I sit here alone in the quiet of the night, the dishwasher is going in the background. I can hear a clock quietly ticking, and reminding me that time is always moving, much like September, but I watched as this month just ticked by. You see I like to think I am always […]

What the future holds

What the Future Holds We moved to this homestead with plans and dreams. They were dreams we always dreamed before ever having a place to make those dreams a reality. Then we finally found a place, and it’s as if a life was breathed back into those dreams. I want to share those dreams, and […]

10 Things

10 Things every city family needs, when moving to the country So this may sound crazy, but a country family’s needs are a wee bit different than a city family. And I as a once city girl, (I say that but to some of you would think what I call city is seriously small town) […]

Ok so break the rules…….

Breaking social norms

Ok so break the rules….. Who needs em’? I must admit part of me wants to break the rules, and by rules I really mean breaking social norms. Living by a set of standards ‘just because’ or because that’s what everyone else does, doesn’t at all make sense to me. Aren’t we all different? What […]

April Round-Up

We wrapped up April, and even though I would like to say we got more accomplished, what we did do was pretty good. There is always more work than time, but April really started us into the growing season. We feel blessed, as we look back and see how far we have come. So the […]
