Fairs, Festivals, and Markets

If you say the words "Market" I will pretty much be interested no matter what.  I love being outdoors, sampling food, purusing unique items, getting some sunshine, and walking away with a keepsake that becomes my own.  It is one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend day.


Below I  have done my best to compile lists of Farmer's Markets and Antique markets that happen once a month or once a week in my neck of the woods... Don't miss out on this goodness!

In the Nursery: Whole Hearted Parenting Manifesto

I recently finished a book by Brene Brown titled, DaringGreatly .  It really moved me, and I am definitely still processing it. At the beginning of the book I wasn’t resonating deeply with the topic of vulnerability, as most people will tell you I am an “open book”.  I will answer most questions without holding back and love to deep dive into good conversation.  However, what I came to realize through her many examples is that we all wrestle with vulnerability, guilt and shame throughout this book even if is more momentary than constant.  I gleaned SO MUCH from this book that I did not anticipate, and I thought I would share this Parenting Manifesto that she put right at the end of the book.  I am printing it and framing it for our nursery, as I think it communicates some deep parts of my heart cry for parenting my kiddos well. I hope this resonates with someone else as much as it did with me.   I needed these words to remind me that parenting is not a checklist,

Processing our Chicken Processing

For years now, Bill and I have discussed getting our own meat chickens.  We wanted to know it all.  What the process looked like, what our food ate, control their environment and make them feel safe and loved during their short life.  We wanted to give ourselves to them and sacrifice our time to them since they very quickly give their lives in order for us to be sustained.  Well 10 weeks ago we got meat chickens chicks and yesterday was our first processing day.  We learned the process of getting a chicken to alive and well to packaged and in the fridge.  It was very educational and also emotional, as we raised these birds from two days old. I will never forget how I felt taking a birds life to feed my family.  It hit my soul in a unique way and I want to stay fresh to that pain.  After I held the knife and looked at the bird and burst into tears.  Our farm mentor said "I would be worried about you if you didn't feel emotions."  I stood still for a few moments givi

At the Library - May through September 2019 Reading

We had another baby in May (SO much more on that later) and blogging has obviously taken a back seat, but I am still reading for pleasure and have managed, in my sons first four months of life, to complete these 8 books!  Y'all, I remember a time when even completing 2 books a year would have sincerely sounded daunting, much less with a newborn.  If you want to read more, you can find the time!  Take stock of your days and see where you are wasting hours.  For some of these, I listened to the audio book while I was pumping or watering the garden.   Rather than give you an individual breakdown of each of these books, I just want to report I found them all incredibly enjoyable.  A total cross section of a food memoir to a psychology deep dive to nature centric novels, I would recommend them all in different capacities.   We have fallen a bit behind on our Bible reading, but we WILL finish by the end of the year. You do not make it to September
