#thisweek 6.16.17 Happy Father's Day!

Hello everyone! It sounds like no matter where you live in the country this week you may have been experiencing some crazy weather. Temperatures way up then way down and rain and then serious sunshine. For us, that meant Matt was paying some extra attention to the garden this week and we snuck in a night of camping on one of the dry, cool nights.  I guess I was being optimistic when I thought a 44' x 36' garden would be enough. We have plants everywhere! The garden is growing, we have cherry and lemon trees growing outside our bedroom,...

The Ultimate Question- Am I doing enough?!

The Ultimate Question- Am I doing enough?!

Normally I try to write these blogs Thursday night so I have plenty of time to check on what we did, get the pictures, organize, etc. This week I looked back and felt like there was just nothing there. Now that the barn is done we have been doing the same things over and over. Matt spends his days alternating between making canvases, watering the garden and planting who knows what, and doing yard work. I have been painting, listing, taking care of dogs (for those who don't know we have a little dog-sitting side business), and helping Matt where...

#thisweek 6.2.17

Usually when I write these I have to look through social media so I can make sure I am only going over what happened in the last 7 days. This week it was more like, "What the heck did we even do this week?"  Our biggest accomplishment by far was finishing the barn demo on Tuesday. We are officially down to a foundation and lots of stacked wood. We had a whole dumpster of debris cleared and the rest of the wood was burned. We got the green light from our insurance company yesterday (woo!), so now we are slowly...

#ThisWeek 5.25.17

This week has been a blur to the point where I am not sure whether or not you can really tell from our social media. On all fronts- work, the garden, the property, personal life- all have all been a whirlwind of activity this past week. Work has been steady, and when you rely on consistency to pay the bills it is really great to have a good month. What is even more important though is really getting something out of it. On some level this happens every day of course, but some projects stick out more than others. This week...

#ThisWeek 5.19.2017

This week... definitely one of those times where you look back and you truly don't understand how you're still standing to tell about it. So much happened! I'll start with the fun part- Matt's birthday present. We went on a helicopter tour of the Blue Ridge Mountains and it was absolutely incredible. We highly recommend going if you are ever in the area, especially in the fall. The colors will be amazing! Now for the craziness- priority number one this week was getting a jump on tearing down the barn on our property. To make a long story short, the...
