Things to know before moving to the country

Back when my husband and I decided to pack up and move to the country I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I grew up on my grandparent’s ranch as a child but I never lived there and I was a kid, I didn’t pay attention to anything besides playing in mud…

Parenting is HARD!

Just so it’s clear this picture is my oldest son. It is not staged, it was just a regular afternoon out in the back yard. I said smile for the camera and that is what he gave me! Priceless. This past week our schedule has been totally out of whack. I had a really good run.…

Creamy Spaghetti

Who doesn’t love spaghetti? Surely not me. Within the last year I have started making my spaghetti differently then how I had it growing up. It’s not because that way was bad, trust me it was delicious, it’s because I realized that I prefer my spaghetti a bit more creamy. (Translation…fattening) This recipe is as simple…
