"Precious Moments" Children

I think we’re all familiar with Precious Moments and their line of all sorts of things from coloring books to ceramic figurines that are characterized by sweet angelic children. Many of them have a faith quality to them of children bowing their heads sweetly in prayer or carefully holding their Bibles…There may not be any Precious Moments type kiddos at your house. There sure aren’t at mine, but with our guidance and support, our kiddos’ own unique versions of precious moments will be apparent!

Without Daddy

Today I’m packing. Packing clothes, swimsuits, activities for the girls, and all our baby “stuff” for my expectant sister in law! One thing I’m not packing is items for my hubby. I haven’t been sure how to feel about this.

Becoming A Farm Wife!

It was 2010, I was in love with the tall, dark man of my dreams. A Norwegian guy with a name to prove his heritage! Between the flurry of planning a wedding, quitting our jobs, selling my house, getting married, moving across the state, seeding our first crop, living in a travel trailer, and harvesting our first crop, I got a crash course in the stress, up in the air, controlled chaos, excitement, and unending challenges that come with the role, which I have fully embraced and have become so proud of...Farm wife!

To My Love

Happy days after Valentine's Day! Valentine’s day is always fun, but in truth I find it more important to show and be shown love the other 364 days of the year. I know you feel the same way! That started me thinking... We have a unique situation. We spend a lot of time together because of our agricultural lifestyle. This fact does not give either of us an easy out.

Searching for Sleep

After posting on sleep the first time, I had many friends message me to share that sleep is a struggle in their homes. It was wonderfully reassuring to hear that we weren't the only ones struggling! The conversations usually continued on to strategies tried and even a small private messaging group of sleep deprived moms was formed for support, encouragement and strategy sharing.
