early morning walks on the farm








these last few weeks i have been challenging myself to pick up my camera more. too often i pull out my iphone to capture a moment, knowing i will be disappointed with the quality in the long-run. 

i have been going to sleep earlier & waking up with the sun to take brief walks out to the pasture to our chicken coop & where our goats spend most of their time. i am in love with this place we now call home. i see an orchard in our backyard, pigs housed right outside the pasture & an expanded chicken barn for raising sweet layers for eggs. in fact, we purchased 50 day-old chicks this week in hopes of starting our own (small) egg business. this spring, freckled hen farm will sell a limited amount of free-range, non-gmo, happy & very well-loved eggs! at dinnertime, our conversation almost always ends with the "i can't believe this is ours!" conversation. we are so thankful.

this weekend we are hosting a farmwarming for family to visit our new home & give well-seasoned advice on how to better keep our pond & raise our animals. i come from a long line of farmers & producers so i am excited to have them here. 

wishing you all a wonderful weekend! don't forget to enter to win a miss money bags wallet! it ends monday!
