apple oat streusel cake

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 […]
