The Truth, Our Story
Believe it or not, I can barely keep a secret from you all. Barely. But telling our story and letting you in on a little something was something I managed to do. Many of you have been wondering, so we decided to make a little video to explain our story. Som...

Waiting, and Waiting, and Waiting: Enjoy the Journey!
TIME: I don't even know what it is anymore. It's gone by fast when I think of the fact that 2015 is gone and we are halfway through the first month of 2016, yet I feel like it could still possibly be 2014 (partly kidding). It's also crept by like a slug or ...

2 Months Later + A Tool & Wood Shed Update
I haven't posted a blog in two whole months. Pretty much exactly to the date. I've decided I may have to become a seasonal blogger. While I'm hibernating (and not quite as busy), I will blog. And when the weather turns, I will disappear from the blogging wo...

Adoption Update
I will apologize from the get go. The whole "adoption update" isn't much. It's just that we get the same question often lately..."how's the adoption going?" or "any news yet?" And we've got nothing. So, sorry I brought you here for very little. Another mont...

Three Favorites
All I have to say is cashew pepper dip, organic chorizo, and Humm kombucha. I want to scoop up the cashew dip and eat it by the spoonful. I don't, so instead I dip veggies in it. The chorizo, better believe that gets all mixed up in some of our fresh eggs, ...

A Fear to Start, A Goal Accomplished...Half Ironman Training Update!
Nearly 4 months ago I swam laps with my head above water. I would panic if my head was under water for too long while attempting to free style swim. I never wore goggles, a swim cap, or ear plugs. Take a moment to envision the chick that shows up to lap swi...
