Tornado warning

I was just checking Facebook, as I’ve been known to do from time to time, and wouldn’t you know it, one year ago today we were issued our very first tornado warning. I remember it well! We had only lived in Tennessee one month, and I thought it was hilarious that we were already experiencing the adventures of the south. …

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 …

MOOOOve on over

So we’ve got cows! I imagine, that from the Reader’s perspective, it would seem that we are just randomly adding animals to our repertoire here, but I promise you that is only sometimes the case. I mean, the ducks- random. The cows and the larger livestock- not random. Thomas has been diligently praying about whether or not to get cows, …

Summertown, where the living’s easy

Seriously, that’s what is on the ‘Welcome’ sign leading into my town: ‘Summertown, where the living’s easy.’ Pretty clever, I think. Sorry for the delay in blogs- if you care- but for one, I went to a week long conference in Vegas, which was a blast but time consuming, and two, I’ve been chewing on a blog that I just …

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 …

The struggle is real

The last few nights have been some of my harder nights as a mom. If you’re a mom, you know that there are SEVERAL nights that will rival for this title, so maybe you’re already nodding along saying, ‘Amen, sister,’ but let me just start by saying these have been the kind of nights where although I did have to …

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 …

Farm Fresh

So much to report down on the farm these days. I swear, things are always changing here, and it’s not even something that we can foresee or plan most of the time. We have become experts are rolling with what’s thrown at us. For example, it’s freezing here. By that I quite literally mean the HIGH has only just today …
