On The Farm: Sunday Funday Family Chores

On The Farm: Sunday Funday Family Chores

Chores are just better with family! On Sunday we spent most of the afternoon with family. It’s always fun to get the kids together and spend the day chatting and relaxing. Ren loves having his cousins over to play! Little Demi smiled the day away and showed off her new waving skills while Ren and […]

On The Farm: Twins!

On The Farm: Twins!

Day and night we’re checking cows! It’s calving season on our farm and the chores are piling up. Feed hay. Check cows. And now… bottle feed the twins! That’s right, WE HAD TWINS! I couldn’t believe it! We had lost a baby calf just days before and then out of nowhere God sent two! He always […]

28 Cheap Date Night Ideas For Country Folk

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so I wanted to share a list of date night ideas you can do on the cheap! We don’t exactly live near “the city” and with a little one at home now, we don’t get out as much as we used to. So I’m always looking for cheap or […]

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

Sunday may be my favorite day of the week! For our crazy busy little family it seems like Sunday is the only day when we can slow it all down and just be present together. And being cramped together in a tiny tractor cab helps too! Ren and I rode along with Dan to feed hay this past […]

Spying On The New Neighbors

Spying On The New Neighbors

Sometimes I work from our dining room table. It’s a great place to work other than the distractions out my window. We have a lot of busy bird-neighbors!  I couldn’t help but watch this one couple. I tried my best to snap some photos of them to tell their story.  One bird perched on the old […]

Summertime Memories On The Farm

Summertime Memories On The Farm

The past couple months have been busy for farmers. After such a “rain delay” this spring, they had to hit the ground running when it would finally dry up! We were finally able to get our hay baled and put away just a few short weeks ago. Ren got to help! We love family ride-along […]

Foggy Farm Photos & Recent Storms

Foggy Farm Photos & Recent Storms

Recent Storms Mother Nature sure has been making me jumpy these past few days. Over this past weekend we had a tornado touch down about two miles from our home. It tore through one home and took several barns in our neighborhood. Thank God everyone was okay despite the fact that the storm came without […]

From The Garden: Bountiful Blessings

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. […]

On The Farm: We’re Growing

On The Farm: We’re Growing

There has been so much going on the last few weeks! My most recent photos tell the story… Our chores are growing… As we prepare to add on to our house, we have had to transplant many of our flowers (that have been here for decades) in order to keep them. It took us over […]

April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

All the beautiful flowers popping up around the farmhouse have reminded me of some photos I took a few weeks back. We had some refreshing April showers and I captured these photos as one of the first thunderstorms of the season approached. There is nothing like the smell of a thunderstorm approaching! I enjoy it […]
