Thank you all for the kind comments on my last post. I know there’s a lot of negative repercussions from such a decision but I appreciate the kindness and support that comes from being believed in.
Just wanted to share a little of what we’ve been up to. It’s been a really busy and full winter, far different from ones in the past. We managed to stay really active between joining the gym to teaching the boys how to snowboard/ski to climbing at the new rock gym that opened in town. My body has been consistently sore for months and the boys have had a blast learning new things.
In no particular order: Grateful
Morning robes cacao.
Seasons first smores.
Lady with her couple hour old bucklings.
Tristans’ first skin tear at the climbing gym (proud mom).
What happens if I ask Collin to try NOT to smile.
Rescuing one of my young pullets from being lost in the woods.
Shooting a new line of linens for my shop.
Kid kisses (I can’t get enough of these two).
Almost done with marathon training and really ready for it to be over! I’m glad for the experience and the mental distraction it’s been this winter but I’ve dealt with many injuries.

I have kids arriving in April; two first fresheners. I’m very excited and nervous at the same time. Living the good life! Hugs to you and your ‘growing’ family!
Yes! I’m so happy for this again but the responsibility is so big! nervous about my transition back into milking especially being alone. Good life indeed, full of hard work! xo
Not to worry… as long as you have a kid or two, they will ‘milk’ mama for you (when you’re unable) without any problem. Mama will also adjust to your schedule. Wish I could be your back-up when you travel 🙂 Have faith… all will be fine dear one!
now i want some smores. i love seeing photos of you and your animals. reminds me of being on my grandparents farm in brazil.
Aside from giving birth, running a marathon was the hardest thing I’ve ever done…but I’ve drawn strength from it ever since. As in, “this can’t be too bad, after all, I’ve finished a marathon!” 😉
yes! every milestone I pass I keep telling myself I have no more life excuses and there have been many runs I’ve compared to labor too!
I love cocao yummm… wish I didnt give up sugar or I could make some!
thanks for continuing to share your thoughts, powerful photos and a slice of your life. you will make the best decisions for you and your family. for now, I am glad you are still here for the rest of us.
Hey I just wanted to leave a comment, I have followed your blog for a while and really appreciate what you do as a mom, very inspiring. I am a mother of one and love what I can learn from all the people around me. I also want to tell you good job on the marathon training. I am training for a marathon as well and it’s been hard and painful, but I was glad to see someone I admire doing the same! you will run great and remember you have a lot of fans cheering you on!
