Magazine Features in Country Sampler Farmhouse Style and Homespun

Some time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I had the pleasure of being featured in two magazines.  Normally I’d share that with you right away while the issues can still be found on the newstands, but I was going to therapy three days a week until Christmas and trying to finish my shopping.  So those features were forgotten about until my mom discovered the magazines in the bathroom!

A Personal Update

Happy New Year! I didn’t want anyone to think I’ve fallen off the face of the Earth so I thought I’d give you an update.

Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip

Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip Every year we go on a family kayaking trip.  I look forward to it every year.  Some trips are very memorable, like the time my sons climbed a short cliff and jumped into the water below and the year we stayed at a campground that had horrible karaoke music.  But this year, our family kayaking trip was memorable because I almost didn’t survive it.

I’ve recently had several new requests for photos for magazine features.  I’ll let you know if or when they end up in print, but it made me think back to my past features.

All You Need is Love … Plus Some Good Medicine

I’m a total multitask person.  I never do just one thing at a time, and I’m always thinking of the next thing I need to work on. But this week … … This week my get-up-and-go just got up and left. And it didn’t look back to see if I was going to follow.

You know, the ones where they try to convince you to buy a ginsu knife, and if you’re not convinced, “but wait, there’s more!”.  They’ll also throw in set of steak knives and a can opener!  Today’s blog post is something like that. 🙂

Country Living Farmhouse Pets | Meet the Minis

Country Living Farmhouse Pets | Meet the Minis About a year and a half ago, my daughter gave away her beloved quarter horse, Indy. It was a tough decision, but at the time she was in college and working full time, and she just couldn’t give him the exercise and attention he needed. Fortunately, we know the family and are able to visit him occasionally.  But we still miss him a lot. We weren’t the only ones who missed him {Read More}
