Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend I learned you like to ride a tiller like a tricycle. Reason #284 why boy roommates are AWESOME. Dear Old Bricks, finding you in the alleyways of our neighborhood was like hunting for Easter eggs. Even though you didn't taste like chocolate, free landscaping is sweet. Dear Mike, last week you greeted Rowan, River and I outside of Quills, and based on how you were dressed I thought you were homeless. Turns out we are neighbors, both have yellow labs, and like to grow black cherry tomatoes and eat purple basil. Thanks for humbly reminding me at age 33 to not judge people based on their appearance. Dear Timothy James, Goonies has been my favorite movie since I fell in love with my first Cyndi Lauper cassette and was old enough to live off of Fruit Roll-ups and episodes of The Cosby Show. When you told me they were making a sequel I almost died. Scratch that. Goonies never say die.

First cassette tape? Don't know what one is? Watch THIS. It will make you feel OLD. Happy Wednesday, brave ones!

"The Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed." -Ghandi
Happy Earth Day, Homies. Because nothing says Happy Earth Day like cake.

PS, to make just buy a box of yellow cake mix and use food coloring to make 3/4 batter blue and 1/4 green. Pour the blue batter on the bottom of a greased cake pan and add the green on top. Once the cake has completely cooled, slice off the top layer using a serrated knife and voila! Earth cake.

Remember the girls fly fishing trip I took to North Carolina last August with Bek & Molls?
I was 2 weeks pregnant and didn't know it yet! Here's a video of our time together on the Davidson River.
Happy Monday, brave ones!

It's hard to believe our blog turns 4 years old today!
I remember thinking blogs were these weird online diaries that no one but your
mom and old friends from high school creeped in on from time to time.
I couldn't have been more wrong!
The friends and community our blog has allowed us to make have been life changing.
Thank you for supporting Tim, River, and I {and soon to be babe!} over the years.
You've watched us grow, struggle, move across the country, buy our first home
raise chickens and bees, travel, and strive to live simple and grateful lives.  
We couldn't be more blessed by you all!
Happy weekend, brave ones.
XOXO

Dear Timothy James, last night I found our newest pullets sleeping in piles inside the coop. Let the wild clucker games begin! Dear 16 Yr Old Grocery Store Bagger, yesterday you said to me, "No pregnant lady should have to carry anything except her baby." Then you escorted me and my one bag of bananas out to my car. Thanks for restoring my hope in humanity. Dear Saving Mr. Banks, seeing you took me back to sitting on the floor with Twinner while watching Marry Poppins and eating stale Goldfish out of china teacups. Fist pumps for being practically perfect in every way. Dear Mr. Loerke, after spending most of Friday getting our seeds in the ground, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for lots of grilled corn this summer and pumpkin everything this fall. You in?

Happy Sunday! One of my first jobs in high school was bagging groceries at our local super market. I loved it and hated it all at the same time! What was one of your first jobs growing up?

{Gratitude} Lately

Wednesday, April 09, 2014


Lately I've been thankful for baby kicks and a giddy Papa.

For handmade gifts made out of corduroy.


 For the reminder to be both of these things.


For a community of women who love bacon as much as they do celebrating others.


And for talented and thoughtful internet friends who I adore and have yet to meet.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Wednesday, brave ones!
What have you been thankful for lately?

Sheesh, this lady is talented.
