Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve! This time last year we were in the midst of a move. We had just moved the day before and were surrounded by boxes and chaos. So much has changed since then, but we still surrounded by boxes and a bit of chaos. This year though, its boxes of presents and chaos... Continue Reading →

Chicken Math

Ever heard the term Chicken Math? I hadn't either until I got my first chickens.

Real Life and Little Things

Sometimes I feel like we are in an endless spiral. Every time we make progress in one place, we fall behind somewhere else. We have been here 6 months and there is not one single room or project finished. I’m not kidding. We are living with holes in the walls, awkwardly placed furniture to cover... Continue Reading →
