Go big or go home bedroom set!

I love and live a simple life. I chose a simple life, because for me it is the good life. I am happier to slow down, enjoy small pleasures, and am elated and so very thankful to be free from the busy, repetitive and rushed world I once worked amid — albeit a world I learned… Continue reading Go big or go home bedroom set!

What makes your ❤ beat fast, your palms sweat, your knees weak, and your breathing rapid?  Well for me, it’s my Farmer (a.k.a. my hubby)! There’s jus’ somethin’ about a strong, hard-workin’ man covered in mud, oil, and cow s#!t that does it for me!  And on the rare occasion that he gets all cleaned… Continue reading Abandoned Farmhouse Writing Desk

And it is this kind of easy lovin’ that has inspired my latest Country Chic Paint project.

7 Bad Boys!

My Farmer n’ kids went to the Jets game tonight. I stayed home to work and keep an eye on our calving cows. I thought it would be somewhat of a quiet evening… till I looked out the window around 6pm and saw a bull standing in the middle of our driveway!  Seriously?!  Tell me… Continue reading 7 Bad Boys!

My Farmer… The Finest #FELFIE Out There!

Felfies (selfies of Farmers) are self portraits of Farmers around the world doing their best to keep everyone fed. It’s a way for us Farmers to represent our industry, whoever we are, wherever we are, whatever we’re doing. #FELFIE a Farmers’ Self Portrait How could I resist this new rage?  My Farmer is pretty fine (OK… Continue reading My Farmer… The Finest #FELFIE Out There!

A Farm Wife Can Dream Right?

It’s harvest-time… which means I’m laying by the pool, eating popsicles and working on my tan.  Haha — a farmwife can dream right? Although that’s what I wish I was doing… in reality while “the men” are out harvesting, I’m doing my little part to help make their life a little more pleasant during their long,… Continue reading A Farm Wife Can Dream Right?

Let’s Go Kids!

Camping! A word and thought that had to leave my vocabulary and mind when I married my Farmer 16+ years ago. For those of you that don’t camp, you may think “So what?!”… but camping is something I always thought I would do with my kids one day, and I have yet to do it…… Continue reading Let’s Go Kids!

OK But I Have to Feed the Cows First

These were the words My Farmer spoke 13 years ago today when I woke him before sunrise to tell him that I was “pretty sure” I was in labour, and that we needed to get to the hospital.  YES… even on one of the most important days of our lives, the cows came first… over… Continue reading OK But I Have to Feed the Cows First
