Little Miss Rolly! 😃🙌🐢 so proud of herself for getting onto her tummy without any help.
The very best view 🌾
I taught you how to carefully push the trains one at a time, with one finger. You listen and learn and are so, so capable my love. You play like this all day most days, chattering as you go. I really just adore spending time with you, at home, like this. 💛 . . . . . . . . #pressplay #documentyourdays #letthemusicplay #letthembelittle #ourhome #oursimplelife #childhood #childhoodunplugged #naturalchildhood #honestmotherhood #motherhood #mylove #mypurpose #toddlers #toddlerlife @summerandstorm
4H demonstration today. Kateri's demonstration was "How to Change Your Guitar Stings". She was so serious, if you didn't know how to change your strings before her demonstration you certainly did when you left. #fifthgrade @national4h @oklahoma4h
The bacony biscuit with tomato jam was heavenly yesterday. I spent 3 hours sipping lattes and knitting at @adelladoricafe with friends. It was nice. Today I’m spending time outside. Happy Tuesday friends! . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #cafe #coffee #latte #adelladoricafe

I took the little ones for a wander at Dover's Hill today - oh my, what a view. It was a lovely walk - gentle climbs and descents, woodlands, pasture, the faint sense of Spring not far away, even through the misty drizzle. We saw thousands of Bluebells - not blooming yet - but the tiny green promises were abundant throughout the woodland. We have it etched on our hearts to return in April to see them in full glory. We saw a dunnock, badger setts, robins, rooks, buzzards and..... at least 2 greater spotted woodpeckers, one of which we watched for a long while, pecking and hammering on a winter branch looking for grubs and worms to collect with it's long tongue. And at the very end, the children made it back to the start, only to begin a very intricate rescue game which I can't help thinking had more in common with Thunderbirds than Naturewalk. #keepitreal #naturewalk #naturestudy #nationaltrust #dovershill #cotswolds #walkingfamily #homeschool #homeeducation #charlottemason #charlottemasonhomeeducation #secularhomeschool #youngnaturalist #letthembelittle #outsideeveryday #wildandfreechildren #oursimplelife #lastchildinthewoods #thunderbirds #brothers
Si je vis plus lentement et que je privilégie un mode de vie plus simple aujourd'hui, c'est probablement grâce à mes enfants qui sont une source incroyable de petits bonheurs. Quand je les regarde, bien des tracas de la vie quotidienne m'apparaissent soudainement plus futiles. Ils m'aident à prendre du recul et remettre les choses en perspective. #gratitudeattitude 📷 panier à langer en vente sur la boutique
Crazy busy days, but we wouldn't have it any other way! What do you do to save time? #Monday
Good Monday Morning! I’m off to a coffee date this morning and then I have glorious nothing until work on Friday! But....I have lots to do still. I have my master gardener class to work on plus I’m still reading, and reviewing, a homestead book. I hope to have both those things finished by Friday. It is supposed to be gorgeous here this week. I hope all the snow and the ice underneath it melts. Oh. And I’ve been blogging! If you’d like to be bored to death please check it out. What are your plans for the week? What’s your weather like? This pic is obvi from a couple of weeks ago...shhhh....don’t tell! Have a great day instagram! . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickensofinstagram #chickens #happymondayfolks #chickensofig #iamcountryside
Thankful to have a husband who comes into our bedroom when my alarm for my nap goes off because he missed me so much while I was sleeping and couldn’t wait to spend time with me. Then I tell him I need 30 more minutes because I have to stay up all night for work and he gives me a hug and a forehead kiss and doesn’t complain. I love him and this little life of ours 💕
#Repost @stacyprestonphotography (@get_repost ) ・・・ Do you rest on Sunday? Like, truly rest the way the Bible calls us to? I know I don't. Physically and most importantly spiritually... And with a busy year ahead I know I need to start implementing this value into my family's weekly routine. Worship, reading, supper with family and black and white reruns of the good ole days playing on Netflix (we have a Mayberry addiction) are what I have in store for the rest of the day. My house needs cleaning...like so bad I can't even believe I let the laundry pile up to the height of my seven year old. (Well, that's not true I do that most weeks.😂🤷🏻‍♀️) So kick up your feet, grab your Bible and get lost in rest and God's beautiful Word! #sundayvibes #stacyprestonphotography #lethimsleepforwhenhewakeshewillmovemountains #mylucas #lynchburgtn #shelbyvilletn #tullahomatn #letthekids #runwildmychild #candidchildhood #momtogs #cameramama #pixel_kids #click #clickinmoms #tennesseephotographer #oursimplelife #Sunday

First Sunday of Lent. #mysundaybest
A view of #bryantpark from my trip last week. I feel refreshed and reenergized. I’ve gotten a ton of stuff done too. And I blogged.

Saturday mornings - Connor is at his buddies, Hunter is playing street hockey with the neighbours so Sawyer and I are baking cookies #honestmotherhood we lick the spoon
Oh to be able to climb trees again.... Instead, all I can do is watch with my heart racing a bit, smiling a bit, ignoring a bit, and hoping it counts as Masterly Inactivity. Allowing and encouraging the boys to know Nature, to really know, is one of the most important connections I can imagine. To see them learn - no, understand - how respect for Nature grows in one's heart is simply beautiful. #outsideeveryday #naturefamily #lastchildinthewoods #britishcountryside #treeclimbing #letthembelittle #charlottemason #secularhomeschool #charlottemasoninspired #homeschool #homeeducation #nature #naturewalk #wildandfreechildren #englishheritage #oursimplelife
Tom and I went to the big city for date night last night. It was sooo needed.

FINALLY...a bed!! Our bedroom has always, always, ALWAYS been the dumping ground of the house. Not to mention for a whole year we have just been sleeping on our mattress. It was like camping. In your own bedroom. FOR A WHOLE YEAR! And it wasn't because we couldn't afford a new bed, it was more, something else of a higher priority needed our money. And this happened ALOT & quite frankly I had, had enough. I wanted a bed and a bedroom that wasn't the dumping ground of the house. So I went feck it and bought one! Sure, the frame above our bed has no photos in it (yet!) and the walls need painted, carpet needs replaced yadda yadda, blah blah! But it's a start! We have a bed...and it's funny to admit that it feels like such a novelty - a treat even. It may take us a little getting used too...because were alot higher off the floor now! 😂 x x x x #developinglife #lifecloseup #myhomestyle #interiors #homedecor #stoneandstone #pompoms #pompomgarland #photoframe #white #newbed #myhappycapture #documentyourdays #itsthelittlethings #oursimplelife #february #homelife #instalife #lovelysquares
Petite fin d’après-midi tranquille 💕

I loved everything about not knowing if we were having a boy or a girl. Blake didn’t come home to a perfectly curated nursery, but the slow process of filling this space with some of our favorite things has been just as exciting. Next up: wall mounted dollhouse 🏠 Tips welcome!
Some of my favorite features from the @downtonabbey_official exhibit. It was a great exhibit and I highly recommend you visit if you get the chance. Fun fact: they used the same room for Mary’s bedroom and Cora’s room. If you look closely (when watching the show), you’ll notice the same view out the window from both their rooms. And I learned I have a LOT left to learn about photography. NYC did not disappoint.

A little throw back to wearing my wedding dress again for a photoshoot with Penelope when she was 3 months old, and then taking a picture at that exact same spot with my little Oliver a little later ❤️ Love having these pictures. 📷 by @vannessa.brown.photography • Have you worn your wedding dress again after your wedding day? I want to hear your stories. •

I’ve been very inspired by @mom_on_the_farm and her homestead binder and food inventory. So over the past few days I’ve completed my binder and a full scale inventory: food, wine, and yarn. You can read about it on the blog. And now I’m off to bed because tomorrow is my first trip to NYC in a YEAR people. I can’t let that happen again. Thank you all for always inspiring and encouraging me. . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #livesimply #liveauthentically #beyoself #dowhatmatters #livebravely #countrylife #rurallife #liveyourbestlife #liveyouradventure #farmher #homesteadbinder #inventory
Sometimes your Sunday and Monday are so busy that you have to read #thenewyorktimes on Tuesday with your best pup laying beside you, your feet up, and a cup of coffee. On a really fun note, I got called in to work yesterday and happened to be there when a sales rep stopped by and I got to taste 2 very yummy wines. #theperksofthejob #imnotcomplaining . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #livesimply #liveauthentically #beyoself #dowhatmatters #livebravely #countrylife #rurallife #liveyourbestlife #liveyouradventure #farmher #sundaytimes
Added some new babies to the family 🌵🌱🌿#seasonsofsimplicity
My Momma came to church with me this morning. ⛪
Good Sunday Morning! Today is the last busy day for me for a while. I have to work and then I’m off for 2 weeks. I have a lot to do in those 2 weeks, most of it’s fun. There’s an Arabic Language and Culture class, a trip to NYC, and a trip to a sheep farm. Plus I have my homestead books to read and review and some other fun things planned for the blog. Speaking of blog, if you are interested I have a couple of new posts up. Oh, and knitting. Lots of knitting planned (you can read about that on the blog). I had a scare with one of the chickens last night! I was tucking them in for bed after work and one of them started doing the ‘snake’ head shake! I brought her into the house and she ate tons of grit. We massaged her crop. It was solid as a rock. By the time she went back to bed it felt much better. I checked her this AM and she’s just fine. Thank goodness! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #livesimply #liveauthentically #beyoself #dowhatmatters #livebravely #countrylife #rurallife #liveyourbestlife #liveyouradventure #farmher #blog #homesteadblog #thankyouwspl
