August 1st

I just have to pop in real quick and tell you that today is August 1st.

Did you know that?

Yeah, you probably did.

Today is the day, that like a million years ago, was suppose to be the day we broke ground. We may not have technically 'broke ground', but so much has happened today.

I received a phone call from the home owners today and we are meeting them tomorrow at their lawyers office to sign the paperwork that will officially make us the owners of a ninety year old farmhouse that has so much potential it makes me want to cry.

On top of that, I came home from book club today and found the Hubs mowing the grass around the building site. He has cleaned it all up and I was able to drive out to the new location for the first time, following the path where the new road will be.

So I drove out, following the sound of the tractor and pull behind mower. As I came into the opening, I saw the Hubs on the open cab tractor mowing the area down.

Seriously, I was overcome.

I wish I had had a camera with me.

I wish I were better with words.

It was the stuff novels are made of, real deal, Nicholas Sparks could have made you cry if he was describing it, novel.

So you'll just have to take my word for it.

It was an amazing site to behold.

I am blessed beyond measure. I am thrilled to begin this journey and to create the home that my babies will grow up in.

Thanks again for coming along, it will surely be an amazing ride!

A Crate and a Challenge

One of my favorite blogs is having a Pintrest Challenge. They do it a couple times a year and its just a fun time to challenge everyone to complete a project they've pinned on Pintrest. I've been wanting to get in on the action, but never found the time. Oh yeah and a little thing called, I don't do Pintrest. It's not because I'm not interested or I don't think I'll like it. I'm terrified of it! I already spend too much time perusing my favorite house app and a bunch of blogs I follow, and Facebook. If I added something as captivating as Pintrest, my house and kids may just go completely uncared for. So in the spirit of playing along with the Pintrest challenge I thought I'd share our headboard that I made a couple years back, loooong before I started blogging. It is by far one of the projects I am most proud of! Almost three years ago, the hubs and I got a new bed, a giant sized, California King! It came with a frame, but no headboa

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday. Yes that commercial . Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today. He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it&#

Happiness

I am a New Years girl. I love goals and check lists and I love the feeling of a fresh start, but resolutions have never been my thing. A few year ago I began picking a word for the year and I found that it works really well for me.  Setting a word for the year has helped me to focus on a quality that I want to grow in myself. Last years word was ‘ intentional ’. It was a full year and in a lot of ways a really hard year. Being intentional with my words, thoughts and actions helped me to really lean into the relationships in my life. The past year felt somber though. It was good and I grew more than I could have imagined, but it also felt serious and deep. I need some relief. This year after praying over it and considering what I would like more of in the coming year, I knew that my word for 2019 had to be 'happiness'. I want more laughter, more spontaneity, more fun in 2019 and none of those things come naturally to me. I thought about words like joy and contentment b
