It’s been some time since I’ve been in this place. I didn’t intend to take such a long time off from blogging, it just kinda happened. So much has occurred since January, that I’m not sure where to start! Actually, I suppose I already have: I’m here! It will take some time to retell the […]

Oh the weather outside is frightful…. It’s just mid November and would you believe that we already have foot of snow? And we are getting into the single digits at night? We often have snow by Thanksgiving, but it’s not that common to have this much snow 2 weeks before hand! It’s a good thing […]

I have really been enjoying all the fabulous and creative ideas that have been shared this week by so many talented ladies! I am quite honored to be along with them, opening up my “idea box” and showing a glimpse of what’s inside. I hope you all have found some ideas to help spear head […]

On the 18th, we had our 4th annual community hay ride (which the Mission we work with puts on and together. So basically, our whole family. ). It was a beautiful day, a bit windy, but very comfortable compared to the snow we had for the hay ride last year! We didn’t have as many […]

my very own swoon
