Well, I guess Hell has frozen over. Covid Hell that is. Who would have thought it definitely can get worse?! What’s next?! A tsunami? Not funny. Full disclosure, it’s my fault. I’m sorry. I have been praying for snow all December, and, all of January I prayed for a trip to Colorado. So, there it …

 MUTTS If you’re not a dog person, you don’t understand. It all may seem crazy, but dog-people crazy is definitely normal. What’s not normal is my dog being human. I swear, he’s part-dog, part-human.

When we first moved to the country, it was a mess. Unbeknownst to us, the barn was full of fleas. There was no central air and heat, just one lonely window unit in the kitchen, then several fans throughout the house.

Want to see the farm-aily (my farm-family) life? This is my favorite place on earth. Let me show you around! We moved from the suburbs of Dallas to a town about 45 minutes east of the Dallas area over 3 years ago now. Seems like we have been out here a lot longer. We bought …

As a family of 7, in a pandemic, I think to myself, ‘let’s be productive’. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. The trouble is, what to do with the kids?  To be brutally honest, our family was in desperate need of quarantine. We have two careers in the house, countless activities, and projects coming …

Whoa nelly, Christmas wasn’t kidding this year. I have so much to say about this year, I don’t know where to start.  Well, let’s start by saying how incredibly grateful I am to have what we have. How cliche, huh? I agree. But this time it’s overwhelmingly sincere. I turn __ this January, and I …
