I'm a 36 year old wife and mother trying to keep sane in my busy life. I love documenting the everyday events in my life, renovating our 1874 farmhouse, and just spending time with my family.
Interests: My family and all of their activities, reading, photography, horses, historic homes, homemade things, antiques, farms, gardening, decorating, restoring our home, finding new hobbies, and reading blogs that I love.
