First love

Okay Readers, as it is Valentine’s day, I thought it might be appropriate for me to share a little love story… This isn’t the love story you might be expecting… yes, I am happily married to a man I’m obsessed with… but before Thomas, there was someone else. Someone many of you have likely fallen in love with, and someone …

8 states

I don’t know if you follow me on social media or not (let me take this opportunity to suggest that you SHOULD and you can find links right on over on the right margin of this blog page) but if you do, you might have noticed that we have been on somewhat of a amazing race across this great country! …

Country living

As I sat there, at my daughters horse back riding lesson at 8am on a Monday, I was pleasantly aware of how beautiful life can be. It was about 70 degrees, german shepherd puppies were playing at my feet as I typed, and the view wasn’t half bad either. I used to hate Mondays. I used to stand in my …

Summertime in Summertown

I’m not one for heat. Even though school is out in the summer and I remember liking that as a kid, I would have to say that summer is pretty much my least favorite season. I just don’t like being hot. However, I still stand by the fact that Tennessee summers have been WAY better than I could have ever …

When the storm comes…

I started homeschooling today! Yes, I realize that a random Sunday in the middle of the summer is a fairly strange day to start homeschooling your kids, but hey, it’s the first of the month so it felt fitting in my OCD brain somehow. Well, that, and the kids were basically begging me last night to start. We began our …

Chattanooga

The Cunningham clan made a get away this weekend, and it was much needed! It’s been a while since we put this ol’ travel trailer to real use- never mind the fact that we use it as a guest house when visitors are in town, which is frequently. But we haven’t towed it anywhere since last summer, which is to …

9 years

9 years ago today, I said yes. No, not to getting married, but I guess you could say that I was saying yes to ‘happily ever after…’ On March 8, 2009, I nervously took a step into entrepreneurship. I didn’t know that’s exactly what I was doing at the time, but I could tell that I was on the verge …

Shalom Family

The end of January was spent in the most amazing way here at Shalom Farm… After 17 days away from my immediate family, I had the great pleasure of flying home to Tennessee with my mom, Papa Scott, my sister, Uncle Chris, and my nephew- Baby Dylan. All my most favorite family people were united for the first time since …

Winter

Well, I’m not off to an amazing start on blogging this year, I’ll be honest, but I’m hoping to make up for my CRAZY January by blogging extra in February. You’re welcome. January marks the beginning part of winter, and I have to say, I’m already over it. I LOVE winter. Winter is my jam! Technically fall is my favorite …

#downonthefarm

Our population here at Shalom Farm has SORED to outrageous heights in only about six short weeks. We’ve hit the big 5-0 if you can believe that! 5 humans 3 dogs 2 cats 16 chickens 9 turkeys 12 guinea fowl 2 hogs and 1 Turdy- although I haven’t seen him in a while… 50- animals, all! Again, at one point, …
