I am swooning over that one..... and hoping that someday that will be my word too. I dream of settling down and spreading these gypsy roots of mine. Someday.... Happy root spreading to you!

It is perfect. Gratitude was my word last year. It's such a good word to carry with you for the year..... and I promise you will miss these crazy days :)

Oh my.... me too! I'm so bad about staying focused. Maybe I'll use that for next year! Or incorporate it into my seeking somehow.... xo~

Adventure is awesome! I think if my husband picked a word it would be something like that..... he is definitely up for making some family adventures this year.... and they all involve a tent and the woods :)

Sunday was warm and drizzly. Over 50 degrees. Usually this time of year a beekeeper just watches and hopes. But because the weather was so warm, we decided to open up the hive and see how the girls were doing. I made up a fondant patty for them, Joe got the smoker going, and we headed outside.... First we added... Continue reading

This was so perfect. My oldest turned 18 this year.... and even though he is attending college here at home, everything is different. There is this very awkward shift of letting them go, slowly. It's such a dance.... easy at times and difficult stumbling over our feet at others. I am only grateful that so far we have managed to raise our big two (our oldest daughter is 16) with a sense of humor and forgiveness and love that we all share with each other through the good and bad dancing.....

I've been thinking a lot about a word for the new year. While it isn't something I usually talk about a lot here in this space..... it's something I've done for a few years now in my own heart. Sometimes it takes me the whole month of January to find the word.... or better yet, for it to find me.... Continue reading

It's so good that 20+ years translates to a job in the "civilian world", you know?!?! It's always been something we've wondered about. Congrats to your new little guitar player!! Watching a little musician unfold is as exciting as watching new little reader! Guitar music that comes to mind...... Be Good Tanyas (Littlest Birds song is my favorite!), Ingrid Michaelson (might be uke more than guitar - but Jade says they are super easy to play & convert to guitar, and she's such a sweetie!!), Joni Mitchell, Edie Brickell, Paul Simon, Jack Johnson, Indigo Girls, Old Crow Medicine Show (content might be iffy on some songs, but they are fun to listen to!), Jerry Garcia & David Grisman have a great folk album (albums Not Just For Kids and Shady Grove)! I'm sure you're familiar with Elizabeth Mitchell? We love her too. Folk music is our favorite for little ones...... have fun!!

I hope so. It's been a dream y-e-a-r-s in the making...... one day..... And the girls have no light. Their coop is well insulated and we keep straw down in the coop so the ground is not too cold. They don't lay in the winter..... and I'm ok with that. And they get spoiled with organic cracked corn and sunflower seeds!
