reunion recap + a glimpse of the homestead

Hey hey, Sweet Friends! 

Even though I don’t usually stop in on Monday’s to share our weekend highlights, I do believe this past one is worth making an exception. 

A little background first. 

Our family holds its annual reunion every year on the 4th of July weekend. It has always been kind of a big event. Lots of people, great food, games, fireworks and just loads of fun for everyone. 

At the end of the 2018 reunion, my Farmer raised his hand when someone asked for a volunteer to host the following year’s festivities. I wasn’t near him at the time and didn’t immediately register what he’d done, but once I did, I was like “oh boy, what did he just get us into?”

So in the Spring of 2019, my Farmer built an equipment shed onto our existing barn, as well as what we later named, the Conference Room. 

The shed is beautifully built and houses various pieces of hay equipment 363 days a year. However, one weekend of the year, all the equipment is pulled out and tables and chairs are set up in their place.

friday favorites: welcome to july

Welcome to July, Friends!

Is anyone else struggling to accept the fact that we are more than half way through 2020? I mean, it occurred to me that I've worked from home more this year than I've been in the office. That seems so surreal.

Funny story - I took my Middle Little Farmer for his annual check up yesterday, and it had been so long since he'd been to town that he honestly couldn't remember where the doctor's office was or recognize the route we take to get there. Crazy.

Anyways, Friday has arrived and I'm linking up with Erika to share a few favorites from the week.

Found these rubber boots on Amazon, and my Littlest Farmer loves them. I'm hoping the eyes can help him recognize when he has them on the wrong feet.

twenty questions: all about the blogger

Happy last day of June, Sweet Friends!

Can you believe July is already here? I'm struggling a little to grasp that concept. We've been in quarantine since March, and as of right now, it looks as though I'll continue working remotely through the month of July. Even though things are starting to open back up in Kentucky, our daycare is still only open to essential employees. Surprise, finance is not deemed essential, and honestly, I'm okay with that. I am also incredibly thankful to work for a company that is willing to accommodate its employees and their families during times like these.

I digress... moving on.

Now, let's get to know one another better. I realized it had been ages since I'd done an about me post, and since those kinds of posts are some of my favorite kinds to read, I decided to throw a little party. I hope you'll join us.
