Good Grief

Grief is a hard thing. No matter how you slice it, it’s just stupid and hard. A very sad thing happened to my family yesterday. Our four month old Golden Retriever puppy was hit by a car in front of our house. My three sweet children and my husband and I all sobbed in our front yard as Tracker took …

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 …

Who let the cows out?

Today was upper body day at the gym of my front porch. The last week has been upper body day if I’m being honest, because I officially have an injury. You heard it here first people, I’m an athlete who has an injury! I’ve been called a lot of things in my day, but athlete has never been one of …

The latest

We’ve been busy down here on the farm recently. Busy with all kinds of different thing, ┬ábut busy in the best ways. I actually hate the word ‘busy’ because people use it as a life avoidance technique, as an excuse, and as a badge of honor, and I use it in none of these ways. When I say busy, I …

The final chapter

Yesterday was a hard day for our family. After several blogs, 2 and a half weeks, and dozens of comments with advice and feedback, we made the difficult decision to put our Golden Retriever, Scout, to sleep. If this is the first you’re hearing about Scout, our adventure began when we picked him up the December 30th, expecting to be …

March on

It’s March on the farm! Can you believe it? Time- it’s amazing how fast it goes. Although it hasn’t quite been a year since we moved from Nevada to Tennessee, it HAS been one year since we closed escrow on the farm! Thank God for Facebook, or I might not have even remembered. But alas, we have been farm owners …

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 …
