Dear Timothy James, this weekend you shoveled our walkway, picked up Kleenex for me at midnight, and washed all of our dishes while our pipes were frozen. Thank you for your selflessly serving me! Dear Oven-Cooked Bacon, holy deliciousness, Batman! I thought the only way to cook you to perfection was in a cast iron skillet. Consider me a converted woman. Dear PollenArts, harvesting our own honey was rewarding, but seeing our wax turned into candles is simply AMAZEBALLS. Thank you for helping make our beekeeping adventure come full circle. Dear Mr. Loerke, every day before you leave for work you put your hands on my belly and say, "Be good to your mama today." This always makes me smile.

Happy Tuesday, brave ones! Keeping bees was on my bucket list for a long time. I'm so thankful we had such a successful hive last year! What's one new thing you'd like to try in 2014?

To sew a quilt that will stay in our family for a long, long time.

And to successfully grow cilantro. I kill it, always. It is the herb that eludes me.

Something new I want to try in 2014...I've been eyeing up crossfit...so maybe that?!?

Try brushing a little maple syrup on your bacon the last 3-4 minutes it's in the oven... oh baby!

We are off on a crazy adventure this year, so my goal is to be brave in 2014.

Beekeeping is near the top off list! I have designated 2014 the year to read and take classes about bees and hopefully get the hive in the spring of 2015!! This year I am hoping to sew a quilt for one of our babes. And to add some fun new veggies to the garden!

I just found about oven bacon last year! I LOVE it! No splattering grease and babysitting the bacon, still amazing deliciousness! Also, I love your beeswax candles--so cool!
