Because it could be so different....
Breaking my blogging 'fast', a rather unexpected break, but one that coincided with life moving at warp speed, and me not wanting to be absent from a second. Lately, I have been reflecting on life, the daily routine we have created, and find myself in awe o...

Just a moment
A quick picture, one of our chilly days here on the farm.... I do so enjoy this time of year. I have also vowed to slow down and not do anything that makes me anything less than a happy mama and wife. We don't eat a lot of cookies (and we don't consume whit...
