Let them be kids


When I saw this week's theme of "Let Them be Little" on Iheartfaces I just HAD to dust off this blog and post one of my all time favorite photos.

Three year olds and their clothes are some of my favorite things. This photo with Emma and her mud boots, in a ballerina dress, hair tie with a ribbon on it around her wrist as a bracelet, and a bike helmet that she had decorated with markers... brushing a horse with her sister's hairbrush. Can anything speak THREE YEARS OLD more strongly than that?

This photo is actually one of the ones that made me desire to learn to take great photos to preserve my children in all their wonderfulness. Emma wouldn't be caught dead going out of the house in this outfit today... I am so glad that I have this memory forever.

Head on over to I Heart Faces to see other photos entered in the "Let them be little".

Some things just bug me...




Finding one of these bugs around my homestead would really be one of the things that bug me.


Seriously bug me. I am pretty sure I'd scream like a girl.


Which is OK since I AM a girl.


But there are some people (I won't mention the names of any "Sweet" Savages who might be implicated in this photo) really need to get out a bit more.

Our first Farm Kid Injury

Guess who was jumping (and falling off) hay bales last night?


Little did we know that a cast can also double as a gun...

Some recent events...

Ahh... spring is finally here. I am so very glad to get the cold weather behind us and to see the flowers again!


I was even able to eat my first salad fully out of my garden. Oh... yum.

55 / 365 - Barn Quilts of Central Kentucky

I would like to catalogue the barn quilts of Central Kentucky... does anyone know who owns these barns?

I would also be interested in YOUR barn quilt if you have one. Please pass on my name to your friends too. :) I need permission from the owners before publishing anything, so I am starting to gather the releases. Thanks!

Sarah's Sunflare


I heart Faces is a website that holds weekly challenges. I have not participated in many, but this week they are having one one sunflare! I HAD to enter this photo. I love it. This was taken one day in January when we had experienced several days of gray and rainy / snowy weather. The sun broke out for a mere 5 minutes, with great light. I coerced my most willing model (7 year old Sarah) to run out with me to get some pictures. She was jumping on the trampoline to keep warm. :) I love that little girl!

So head over to I Heart Faces and let check out the other sunflare photos!
