Life on the Farm

Hello friends! I wanted to stop in and let you know about all the happenings here on the homestead. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s chat!

A real live purebred Jersey heifer! ::swoon:: She is the most adorable thing… More Life on the Farm


Valentine’s Day isn’t really my thing. They say you either love it or hate it, but I am indifferent. It’s a nice excuse to make a fancy dinner or to partake in overpriced chocolates, but my husband and I don’t typically make a big deal of it.   I have never been one for grand… More Spoon
