Neighbours. I have the best kind. The kind that will drop everything when you’re in a pinch and need a hand. The kind that will stop whatever they’re doing to tell you that you have some cattle outside the fence — and will also head on over to help you get them back in.

“Perfect” — we strive for it, we desire it, we crave it. But WHY do we do this to ourselves, when truly NOTHING is perfect?! I find myself guilty of this far too often.

I however can’t… Continue reading JUST for YOU my girl!

I’m a farmwife. It’s good. Really good in fact. I however wait a LOT — on my Farmer. I will likely take my last breath waiting on him.

I love and live a simple life. I chose a simple life, because for me it is the good life.
