I've been quiet here, yet again. Things have been strange lately. I honestly feel like I've been transported to a strange opposite world, where my understanding of life totally conflicts with others. At least, that's what the media tells me. My husband is facing a vaccine mandate at his job. Is he in healthcare, you … Continue reading Facing a Vaccine Mandate
A rainbow after a tropical storm sat over our home all day. God is faithful. Good morning, ladies! I realize I've been MIA lately. I've had full intentions to blog the last few days, but life has simply gotten in the way. Besides tending to my Etsy shop, we have resumed our homeschool lessons and … Continue reading Where Have I Been?
Good afternoon, ladies! Sometimes, I feel like I don't have too much to share with you regarding what has been going on in our home. Well, not today! This week has been busy. We have worked, we have played, and we have gotten a lot done. This is such a good feeling. At the same … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse Into Our Home #14
I hope you are having a nice Father's Day with your family, if you choose to celebrate it. We are enjoying our favorite guy today, as well as spoiling him a little. He takes good care of our family and definitely deserves it! Last night my older children and I spent some time decorating our … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Morning || June 20, 2021
Happy Thursday, ladies! I can hardly believe we are nearing the end of the week. I've been trying to get into better shape since my youngest is no longer nursing, and goodness, the past few days have been tough. I'm grateful to have some resemblance of self control back, though. I'm always so hungry while … Continue reading I’m Back on Instagram (For Now)
Sometimes I wish that time could stand still. Perhaps you know what I mean. My children are growing like weeds, and I want to do all that I can to enjoy them. Each day they are marching closer to independence, and I simply love being a mama of littles. I'm trying to soak them, and … Continue reading Simple June Blessings
We got the call last week. In March, my husband and I ordered an Amish-made log canopy bed in honor of our anniversary. A splurge, to be sure, but I am super happy with the decision. Rolling words like Amish, log, and canopy bed together makes me feel pretty wonderful. Anyhow, we got the call … Continue reading Our Anniversary Gift Has Arrived!
Excitement has been buzzing around our house all weekend. It has been such a good one. Normally I am perfectly content staying home, but we have been gone quite a bit the last few days. Lots of planning and a few surprises have been involved. I was grateful for a fun surprise yesterday, even though … Continue reading A Long Weekend
Happy Tuesday, ladies! I hope everyone had a good day yesterday, and are looking forward to the rest of the week. I thought I'd share a bit about my Monday with you. Our Mondays are a little different, in that my husband is usually off from work. It's a good time for us to get … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Day: May 25, 2021
(Our Sadie girl is looking super cute thanks to my daughter's photography skills!) Happy Monday, ladies! It is getting warm around here, and I must say this is one of my favorite times of year. Oh, the flowers are so lovely! Flowers are one of my favorite things ever, and seeing them in bloom everywhere … Continue reading May Homestead Update + Giveaway Winners
Well, how's that for a title? Yesterday was Mother's Day, and I hope you had a very blessed day with your family. Mine was both perfect and hard at the same time. That's life sometimes, isn't it? We decided to stay frugal and drove the Cherohala Skyway for the first time. Ah, there were so … Continue reading Life Update, Free Financial Trackers, Plus a Giveaway!
The day seemed to dawn early this morning. After a long night with a little one, I would have been quite happy to stay in bed! After rising for the day, I got dressed and fixed a cup of milk for my little guy. I then settled in to pump and watched part of Jamerill … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Day: May 5, 2021
Happy Tuesday, ladies! The days are getting warm and my kiddos are itching for summer. I, on the other hand, relish the beauty and (relative) coolness of spring. Georgia summers can be simply sweltering! Granted, we are in north Georgia, but it can get very warm and humid where we live. I've been working in … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse Into Our Home #13
Happy Tuesday, ladies! I hope you have had a blessed April so far. Today I've been able to catch my breath for a minute after a very busy few weeks. We have been finishing up schoolwork, and are almost done! As much as I love homeschooling, having a little break in the middle of the … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse Into Our Home #12
Goodness, life has been busy, hasn't it? I've meant to post for at least a week now, but just haven't found the time. Life has been so good, and I hope to update you soon. We have made a deposit on two polled lamancha doelings, our garden fence is going up, and there are so … Continue reading Our 16th Anniversary
So much of this week has been glorious! The weather has warmed up in our neck of the woods, and we have been spending lots of time outdoors. I love this time of year. Semi-warm days without insects and poison ivy is just about perfect. I've been homeschooling our crew, and have enjoyed reading to … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse into Our Home #11
Another week is almost over, and it's been an enjoyable one. Sometimes my days feel monotonous, but I always try to remember that there is such good to be found in each one. I enjoy writing these posts, because they remind me of all the little blessings that are here if I just look. This … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse into Our Home #10
Late last night, I scrounged through my closet, looking for a few bags of Valentine's Day goodies. Once they were found, I arranged a special place for each child, writing their name on a scrap piece of white paper. It's Valentine's Day! While my husband and I mainly practice our faith in Messianic ways, we … Continue reading How We Celebrate Valentine’s Day
Happy Friday, friends! I can smell Challah Bread baking in the oven, and my Himalayan Salt Lamp is brightening the dreary day. We have experienced two straight days of messy rain, and I'm looking forward to the weekend. This week has been both busy and blessed, as always. So many good things have come from … Continue reading A Weekly Glimpse into Our Home || 2nd of 2021
The day dawned early and bright, with excitement in the air. It was my son's birthday! I could hear him up and chattering through my bedroom door. I smiled while talking to Moses and getting ready for the day. The first order of business was bread! My husband enjoyed the sourdough loaf bread that I … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Day || February 8, 2021
