{Women & Fly Fishing}

Tuesday, December 12, 2017



I was greatly encouraged yesterday by this article in the New York Times about women and fly fishing.
Thankful for my friends and Orvis family who continue to inspire more women to get out on the water!

{The Things That Matter}

Friday, December 01, 2017


"It's not what's under the Christmas tree that matters, it's who's around it." -Charlie Brown
Teaching this truth to a 3 1/2 yr old is a full time job these days.
Anyone else with me?

{Meyer Christmas Tree Farm}

Tuesday, November 28, 2017






Saturday was the perfect finale to a 5 year run of cutting down our tree at Meyer Christmas Tree Farm.
Sadly, Michael and Laura are retiring after this season! {Insert lots of moans and groans here}
This year Brave was old enough to pick out our tree on her own,
and after going up and down each row of tress 193 times she finally found one she couldn't leave behind.
In the words of Clark Griswold, "She's great. A little full. Lotta sap."
When do you get your Christmas Tree?
It's been a tradition of ours to do it Thanksgiving weekend which we love!

{Happy Thanksgiving!}

Friday, November 24, 2017


Our list of things to be grateful for this year is as long as the Magna Carta and as wide as
Joey Tribbian's Thanksgiving pants.
So grateful for these two!
How was your Thanksgiving?

{Welcome Magee Ray & Dolly Marie!}

Monday, November 20, 2017







I couldn't be more thankful for the last 48 hours.
Two babies from two of the strongest women I know who labored on the same floor just 15hours
apart with rooms next door to each other.
Welcome to our lives and arms sweet Magee Ray & Dolly Marie!

{A November Tradition}

Thursday, November 09, 2017

My dad always taught us to plant paperwhites in November so they would be in full bloom for Christmas.
Today the tradition was passed on to Brave who has affectionately renamed them "paper wipes"
Fa ra ra ra ra ...
Happy Thursday, ya filthy animals.

Nothing better than kicking off a Saturday morning with leaf angels. 

{Gratitude Lately} Coop de Ville Edition

Tuesday, November 07, 2017


Lately we've been thankful for our first pullet eggs.


For coop swings that give our chicken wrangler another excuse to play outside.



For chicken cuddles with Cluck Norris.


And for a sense of humor I inherited from my dad.
Happy Tuesday, y'all!
