100 Days of Gratitude

100 Days of Gratitude

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach The quiet act of taking…

There's just something about watching the sky day after day and finding a rhythm in nature through intentional observation. I have fantasies about tracking the weather patterns on our Eventual Farm...learning the ebb and flow of nature in our own personal micro-climate...how each day of sunshine, each drop of rain, and each gust of wind (and it's direction) will directly…
There’s Just Something About a Snow Day!

There’s Just Something About a Snow Day!

As a kid, Snow Days were the best part of winter.  The level of excitement brought on by the cancellation of school was almost uncontrollable.  There was a Snow Man to build, sledding to be done and hot chocolate to drink after you'd played so hard your fingers were almost too frozen to even hold onto the mug of chocolatey, creamy,…

What a Year 2014 Has Been!

What a Year 2014 Has Been!

The swiftness with which time passes these days amazes me. Maybe it's due to the busy days and long lists or the giggles and pitter pattering of little feet...

2014’s Most Rockin’ Posts

As we approach the closing of yet another year, I debated on whether or not I should get all deep and introspective on you, my dear readers...you know, go into all of the changes we've seen over the past year...talk about the challenges we faced...the goals that were crossed off the all mighty To-Do list and those that will be…
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

From our family to yours, wishing you are marvelous, joy-filled Christmas :-) xoxo, M Please note: 1) No children were harmed while visiting "Santa", but man will that pic make for some laughs down the road. 2) Our Christmas tree really is empty on it's bottom half.  Having a toddler running around the house is no joke ;-)
