I’ve been under the weather this past week and trying to resume eating. I haven’t really eaten anything in days and have decided to ease back into it with soups. I have always loved soups and this past week, I was inspired by Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers’ link up to…

We were hit hard by the first blizzard of 2014. The winds were incredible and I could barely sleep a wink worrying about the chickens, how our 10 pound dog would manage in the snow drifts, and how to contain the excitement of two young children ready to pounce in the snow at first chance.Read…

Living by the sea has wonderful opportunities for families. One of my favorite things to do is to head on down to the local inlet and go crabbing.  Sometimes we only catch a few and other times, we fill an entire bucket.  The quantity never seems to matter, the fun is always there.
