bees

so my latest farm project is bees. yep bees. i’ve been taking classes for about a year (not like every week more like once every other month) to really learn about bees how to keep and maintain them. the bee population is rapidly decreasing due to commercial building, pesticides and sprays and other junk we […]

weekend recap home improvement

this weekend was again absolutely beautiful. i can’t believe we have been so fortunate to have so many glorious weekends in april. i’ve lived in michigan my entire life and i’ve never remembered the spring being this warm and sunny. it can stay like this forever. this weekend we (again) worked our tails off doing […]

finally friday housework edition

25 weeks

you guys. how did i get to be 25 weeks pregnant? (don’t answer that). this morning i was putting on my sandals and this is the first time i actually had to rethink my strategy with tying the buckle a bit. every day it becomes a bit more and more real that this babe is […]

baby mama drama

hi my name is abby and i had my first (maybe first and a half) all out baby meltdown about pending baby. it’s not as bad as the movies show. i didn’t throw anything, break anything, joe remained unharmed. but i definitely swirled into an all out panic about what life is going to look […]

lamb updates

you guys, farming is no joke and raising the lambs are no exception. books all make it look so easy but books can’t warn you of the emotional roller coaster you hop on once the sheep start going into labor. i know it sounds dramatic but in a way it kind of is. boo boo […]
