    Happy Nov. 12th.

    Once a year we celebrate an event that is yours alone A time when creation stood still to watch in awe. A miracle, transforming you from thought to crying babe A moment that those who cared will always recall. It's not a day that ages you or makes you wrinkle It's not a...

    Ranch Life

    "Ranch" is actually too grand a term for 28 acres. But since we have horses and our attempts at growing anything are mostly a miserable failure...ranch it is. My father has a multitude of free range chickens with which I try to remain uninvolved. Emergency back up only where...

    What Is This?

    I love living a simple life. Having what I need and less of what I think I want. Life for Rob and I is basic and we try to keep the drama at bay as much as possible. Our home is our sanctuary and everything has its place and every purchase we have made for our new life together...
