Breathing again.......

A cloudy day outside...but a cozy day in the kitchen!


Dearest Readers,

Well, 2016 is behind us and a brand new year lies in our path.....fresh, with no mistakes in it... 

I must admit that 2016 was one of the most difficult and joyous years of my life.  Difficult, because Dearest had become profoundly deaf in both ears, our Darling Girl spent 5 long days in the hospital (we watched the Super Bowl from her room), and our Soldier Boy deployed to Afghanistan.  Joyous, because Dearest received Cochlear implants and can now hear, our Darling Girl is feeling much better and said "YES" to her beau, and our Soldier Boy returned home to our loving arms!

I feel like I can breathe again....and I hope this newfound energy will spill over into many areas of my life...including my little home here! 

Just a few diversions I plan to share......

I have found a few new blogs to share with you and I hope that they will bring you joy and encouragement.  

We have a wedding to plan and I will be sharing all the darling ideas that our sweet daughter comes up with....look out Pinterest!

My pantry will become a topic of conversation, as I look for more ways to provide for my family.  

Our Greenhouse is a constant source of delight and defeat....I'll be dishing all the dirt that happens in there!

Of course, the chickens will be front and center, along with our camera-shy alpacas.  And...I am hoping for goats, but we will see.

I hope you will leave me suggestions as to the types of things you would like to read!

Well, that is all for now...

Yours so kindredly,
Shan
