You guys. A couple of weeks ago I met Karen, @thelittlegreycoop , thru this great big world of Instagram. It probably wasn鈥檛 all that random since we both live in Upstate NY and have a love for homesteading and photography. What makes this connection special is when you casually mention you鈥檇 like to have a cow ornament to go with your chicken ornament and then it shows up at your house! Take a look at her packaging and that card. And the chicken bookmark! I鈥檓 so happy to have met Karen, and all of you, with your generous spirits! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #homemade #iamamodernfarmer #modernhomesteader #womenwhofarm #instaconnections #friendswhofarm #cowornament

My sweet friend Bethany, @theredshedhomestead , tagged me to show off my pup for #farmpupfriday and who am I to say no to showing off this cute girl? If you鈥檝e met Anna Lee you鈥檒l know she鈥檚 not much of a farm dog, although she loves to alert you to visitors both real and imagined. BUT she鈥檚 a cutie and she鈥檚 up for anything! She loves playing, barking, eating, and long walks, on the beach, up the road, backyard. Doesn鈥檛 matter as long as she gets to go. Thanks for tagging us @theredshedhomestead !!! . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #homemade #iamamodernfarmer #modernhomesteader #womenwhofarm #annalee #rescuepup #christmastime

I'm trying to sum up what this first year with her has meant to me, but all I can do is soak it in. How many of you were first-time parents in 2018? It's a wild ride. Slowly but surely we are getting close to her one year birthday. Seems like such a big deal, yet, to her, it'll just be a normal day like any other. Except now she can have honey 馃槅...

Sometimes I go and go and go and then I hit a wall. Today I hit the wall. So I canceled my after work plans, came home, and made a cup of homemade chai tea. It鈥檚 the first time I鈥檝e made home made chai and the first round didn鈥檛 go as planned (let鈥檚 just say lemon and cooked milk is not a good idea). My plan for the rest of the day is to snuggle on the couch and work on Christmas gifts. The @iamcountryside theme for the week is homemade. As you might know, I鈥檝e been on a big making kick lately and needless to say, as is evidenced by the chai tea making, sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some. Happy hump day friends! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #homemade #iamamodernfarmer #modernhomesteader #iamcountryside #chaitea #homemadechaitea #harneyandsons

The right to choose at any moment is crazy to me. We have the ability to choose almost anything in life. Even in things we have no control over, we have the ability to choose how to react to them The only place that our ability to choose is not valid is to choose for others. We can not do that. #讞讬讬诐驻砖讜讟 #simplelife #oursimplelife #advancedselfie #photography #inspiration #instagram
24 | Normally I base how good my bday is on what I got and what others did for me... so silly. This year I focused on what I already have and what I needed today and that was sloowwww day with my best gal. The best gift of all is my husband and daughter two people I love endlessly and who love me right back, I never thought that at 24 I would be so complete and be living my best life 馃А I left the chores, napped with my girl and took a walk amongst the trees. Perfectly simple. My heart is full, so is my champagne glass and I hope everyone else had a great day too 馃嵕馃А馃寛 #birthdaylove

We visited Santa and Mrs Claus today! G didn鈥檛 warm up to Santa, but was okay with having Papa Dave, my Dad, hold her and she made Daddy be in the photo too! A fun family day!
I was deep in sleep, when I woke to crying, and realized this cutie was vomiting on me. Suffice it to say, I jumped up so fast, I thought I was going to be ill too 馃檲 Poor baby is the second one to get this nasty virus, and was up all through the night. I'm so thankful that so far I am well, and can take care of my crew.

What's the story you're willing to create? How bold are you willing to be? What is the impact you want to make, + what is the legacy you want to leave? It starts in my heart, + moves through the relationships with my loved ones, + out into the world. We're all connected, by our energy, by our stories, + the story you create for yourself will cause ripple effects to everyone around you, through everyone you meet. You don't have to live the biggest + the boldest, but you have to live the truest to yourself. Figure out what that is, who that is, + live forwards. . . . . . #focusonsimple #whatisyoursimple #oursimplelife #myintentionallife #legacy #whatisyourlegacy #lifeisshort #makethemostofit #spiritualgrowth #expandyourmind #mindbodyspirit #beyourbestself #workinprogress #universalassignment #lifelessons #lifelearning #lifeteaches #showup #beopentolearning #beopentogrowth #mindfulnessmatters #heartofgratitude #heartofservice #onelife #bebold #createyourstory #whatsyourlegacy #betruetoyourself #weareconnected

Summer is here (kinda) and Hazel is loving being not so covered up! She would probably even prefer to just be nude all the time 馃槀 We are loving this gorgeous rust nappy cover from @mali_love_co so light and breezy and just so so so beautiful. This business is based in Perth and is run by a fellow Mumma too! So if your looking for summer clothes for your babe or gifts for Christmas definetly consider shopping closer to home and #supportingsmallbusinesses this Christmas 馃巹 #hazelconstancerice
Thanks, Appreciation, and Gratitude all have been on my mind lately as we are preparing for the Birth of Jesus. 鈥 How fitting because Mary personified gratitude when she accepted the responsibility of bearing the Son of God in her womb. She is a such a strong example of gratitude. 鈥 Christmas preparation for our family this year is focused on Gratitude. Grateful for our family, friends, and relationship with God this year. 鈥 I love this time of year and even more because I am blessed to have the opportunity to experience it through my daughter. There is truly nothing better than experiencing seasons through the eyes of a child. 鈥 May your family enjoy this Christmas season reflecting in gratitude for all the gifts God has given you this past year. 鈥 God Bless! 鈥 Photo Taken: Tracy, MN corn field (1st snow fall of the year! 鉂勶笍)

What a perfect time of year to be intentional in how you create memories + traditions with your loved ones... Traditions are the stories from our family that are passed from one generation to the next. They are our history and provide the knowledge of who we are, where we come from, and the values we hold. They are how we know we belong. Follow the link in my bio to read the latest blog post on creating traditions with intention.

I have to admit that all of the movement, noise and traveling has got my body a little disheveled.

My beautiful blue eyed girl has been super tired and sad the last couple of days and has needed some extra feeds, cuddle naps and love 馃挄 Teething? Growing? Probably. It鈥檚 been pretty rough for me but I鈥檝e had to remind myself that what鈥檚 going on for her is so much bigger than I can even imagine and she just needs me more right now. So we cuddle on the couch, boob most of the day and I binge on NETFLIX which I haven鈥檛 done in months... pretty blissful really (apart from the sad baby馃槶) #hazelconstancerice

You do not need permission to be happy. You do not need permission to go after your dreams. You do not need permission to feel worthy. 馃尃 You don鈥檛 have to prove anything, or achieve anything, or do anything to deserve to be happy, to go after your dreams, or to be worthy. 馃尃 It starts within you. 馃尃 It takes a little bit of fire, a little bit of strength, a whole lotta self-love. 馃尃 It鈥檚 easy to feel like you need approval to realize your dreams. It鈥檚 hard when those who should love you the most, are actually the most skeptical. When they believe you need to meet their expectations to be happy, to chase your dreams, to be worthy of love, success, happiness. 馃尃 It鈥檚 hard. 馃尃 But it starts within you. 馃尃 You do not need permission to be happy. You do not need permission to go after your dreams. You do not need permission to feel worthy. 馃尃 You have nothing to prove to be deserving of these things. If you want to be happy, go after your dreams, feel worthy, it starts within you. . . . . . #focusonsimple #whatisyoursimple #oursimplelife #myintentionallife #legacy #whatisyourlegacy #lifeisshort #makethemostofit #spiritualgrowth #expandyourmind #mindbodyspirit #beyourbestself #workinprogress #universalassignment #lifelessons #lifelearning #lifeteaches #showup #beopentolearning #beopentogrowth #mindfulnessmatters #heartofgratitude #heartofservice #youareworthy #youareenough #exactlyasyouare #itstartswithyou
