Ren’s First Haircut

I hope you all don’t get too tired of me posting thousands of photos of my little family. And if you are tired… sorry. Sorry, not sorry. (I actually never say that but it fits here) 🙂 I feel it’s important to document all of these little moments! Especially because this little guy of mine […]

Grandma Jackie

Grandma Jackie

I recently submitted a short essay (you guys get the longer version) to a contest for Missouri’s best grandmothers. I don’t know if she’ll win but I sure wanted to share her story anyway! She is such a special lady and has impacted my life in so many ways! Everyone deserves a “Grandma Jackie” their life!  […]

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 […]

It’s amazing how quickly the […]

On The Farm: Miracle Baby

Dan and I were checking cows the other evening and noticed one of the cows had separated herself from the group. She looked like she was ready to calve so Dan planned check on her again later. He returned to the field a couple hours later, right before our bedtime, and still no sign of […]

A Summer Poem Of Sorts

A Summer Poem Of Sorts

A catchy little poem came to me after work Monday as I walked out of my building into the heat and humidity of a Missouri summer evening. I jumped in my car and felt the heat immediately surround me as I searched for my keys. Beginning to sweat, I turned to grab my seat belt not […]

Grandma’s Blonde Brownies

How To: Hunt and Prepare Wild Mushrooms

The spring rains come frequently followed by small glimpses of summer sunlight leaving the ground nourished and full of life! It is such a beautiful sight to see green grass and bright flowers popping up everywhere around our farm! April showers (also) bring… MUSHROOMS!
