So it's almost the end of May, but my monthly goals for April are coming right along! Looking back at the list... Finish the bookshelves for Baby J's room - We're LOVING how these turned out! I followed this tutorial from Shanty 2 Chic's website. Was able to utilize leftover sandpaper, primer, paint, and screws so … Continue reading April Updates
Farm life can be an emotional roller coaster ride sometimes. Not just for me, but for my kids, our relatives, our friends, and for the farmers too. For one, there's no social planning with farming. Well you can plan all you want, but there's NO guarantee the plan will go as scheduled. This had been probably … Continue reading Ups and Downs
I love food. Seriously, I have an emotional relationship to it and actually spent quite a large sum of money (and my parent's too) learning about it in school. GO HOKIES!

You mean you aren't on a first name basis with your USPS workers!? Perks of a small town 🙂 Inside, she was delighted … Continue reading Thanks Danny!
I'm loving this time at home with the babies and could get used to being a stay at home mom. Darn you expensive health insurance! Most of our days are spent playing, feeding, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and once in a while there's even an occasional nap. Now that I've physically recovered from childbirth there … Continue reading April Goals
I woke up this morning greeted by this cute little smile... It actually made me laugh. Mr. Cozy Coup does not normally take up residence on the entrance steps. How did it get here? I've been meaning to start this blog for about five years now, but in the back of my mind I kept wondering who … Continue reading Farm Sweet Farm
