Waiting To Meet You

Waiting… Seems like all we do these days is wait. Wait on contractors. Wait on a house. Wait on a baby. Wait. Wait. Wait. I’m feeling as if time is moving so quickly yet I’m stuck… like a hamster on a wheel… just waiting for everything to change. Because any day now, EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE. [...]

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

I talk about it all the time but I can’t help but think how much this “homestead” has been a blessing to us. We didn’t buy this land for the house, yard or garden but those things have surprisingly become the things that make this our home. It’s almost as if this place found us. [...]
