Party fit for a Farm Princess

It’s been a whirlwind of a year with our Lucy Pearl and I still cannot believe we are parents to a one year old.

Matters of the Heart…

Because of an intense stirring in my heart, it’s been a little quiet on the blog lately.

Meet Ruby Sue.

As you can see we spent our Christmas holiday welcoming the newest member to the farm, a little heifer named Ruby Sue. I’ve had my eye on her since we initially met her at our friends’ family cattle farm in St. Francisville a couple months back. I noticed she was the smallest girl of the… Continue reading Meet Ruby Sue.
