Prepping for our Homestead Move

Prepping for our Homestead Move

You guys! The feedback we've received across all platforms (and in real life from family, friends, and colleagues) about our impending homestead move has been nothing short of amazing! Granted, there are those who think we're a bit off our rockers to leave our current (so lovely) rental, but most come around quite nicely when we explain the situation a…

The Next Chapter

Hello Friend! Long time no chat! How are you? How's your fall moving along? I do hope your transition from season to season has been a smooth one! Things have continued to be rather quiet in this space, but it's not for lack of activity, I promise. Between the closing up of the season, busy work schedules, Kim's continued recovery…

Concussed

Five weeks ago, Kim fell down the stairs on her way to grab a late-night snack and gave herself a concussion.

The sounds, the smells, the sight of it all moves me like…

If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee... I'd greet you with a great big hug and thank you for joining me on this fine September morning! I'm in awe that it's been since February (yes, February!) that we've taken the time to sit together for a while and catch up! But we'd chuckle it off and decide on a beverage before curling…

The Changing Seasons – August 2017

Oh how I've missed participating in Cardinal's monthly Changing Seasons link ups! Not just because it allows me to reflect on the month that has just passed, but also because it allows me to see how other are experiencing the passing of time in their corners of the world! Alas, despite my best intentions, I fell away from participating a…
