It’s hard to believe that we are at the beginning of another new year!  If I had to give a theme to the year 2015 it would have to be the “year of change”.

So many things changed for me personally in 2015.  I went from a size 18/20 to a size 14! I can’t tell you how thrilling it still is to pass “that” department in a store!

I got married right at the beginning of the year…and it has been a wonderful year!

The Farmer and The Herbalist!

The Farmer and The Herbalist!

We share the same dreams, have the same goals and are passionate about the same things!  We truly have enjoyed this last year and are eagerly looking forward to what this new year will bring!

This happened in the summer of 2015…

I don’t know which is more full, my arms or my heart!  After 35 years of shopping for blue, trucks and “i ji joes”, I finally get to shop in the pink department and I’m reveling in the sweetness of ribbons, bows, and lace and I’m looking forward to baby dolls and tea parties!

My “baby” began his last year of homeschooling the fall of 2015 – and happened to grow a foot along the way.  Now standing at 6 feet tall, his heart belongs to these mountains and woodlands and he spends a great deal of time there.


And towards the end of 2015, we dug a giant hole in the ground…

Next post?  Let’s talk about some of the adventures we are expecting in 2016…buckle your seatbelts boys and girls…it’s going to be an exciting year!
