• Growing Herbs on the Windowsill {Gypsy Magpie}

    You Reap What You Sow

    When I get frustrated, the best way for me to find peace in my head is when I put myself to work. Gardening has become one of my favorite things to do because I don’t have to think. It’s one of those times when I can let go of my mind and just use my […]

  • Water, Water, and Water Some More!

    The past month has been a little stressful around here. The Holidays tend to be crazy anyway, but adding in my grandpa’s passing and funeral, sickness, and lots of stress with my sweetheart’s job, has made me feel a little overwhelmed. The dreaded “Not Enoughs” made an unexpected visit in a big way and left us all […]

    DIY Mudroom, Merry LATE Christmas to ME!

    When my hubs asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I gave him a big hug and answered…”wood“.

  • Nourish the Children this Christmas

    As I have been wrapping Christmas presents for my children the past few days, I can’t help but feel a little ache in my heart. Here in America, we have an abundance of blessings. For the most part, we have access to clean water, a hot meal, and a warm place to live. The majority […]
