I was trying to decide what some of my most favorite posts are and were, but I honestly love everything you share! You are one of my "must reads"! I love the little glimpses into your precious home and I love posts where you share your favorite outfits. I am an avid thrifter and I love those posts too. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself with the world here in your little creative space! www.onewomenshaven.blogspot.com

I love your creative ideas for living on a budget including gifts ideas and meal planning. I'd love to hear more about how you and Luke create and maintain your budget while keeping your fun lifestyle in mind. More and more I find myself oohing and ah-ing over your photos. I would especially love to see a tutorial on how you create your signature photo style for your blog photos. Day in the life features are also always fun to read! :)

Kristen said...

I also love your living on a budget posts. My husband and I just bought a farm so I would love to see more "farm life" posts and gardening tips and different ways to use up all the produce. Love your blog! Keep on keeping on!

Kelly said...

You are my favorite blog!! Thanks for all the fun insights. I'd love to see more on your garden... What you decide to plant, growing tips & tricks, what you can/store. Granted gardens are largely different year to year based on weather. Any tidbits. Thanks for all you do!

Eliza said...

I like your style posts on Instagram and would definitely love to see more of those here! But in general, just keep it up. :) xo

Hi Natalie! It's always a pleasure to read your colorful posts :-) I especially enjoy your gardening posts, and, like Kristen, I would love to read (even) more about farm life, gardening, animal tending and canning/preserving.

Heather said...

Hi Natalie, I just recently found your blog (from a link from The Homespun Heart) and love it! I especially enjoy your decorating ideas & how-to's. Love your signature style. :) Of course you've got a lot going on, but selfishly I wish you'd post everyday. :)

Yours is my favorite blog! I love the simple life, gardening, crafting, cooking, canning....I must say I am looking forward to seeing the porch you are hoping to add to the house next year, so renovating your sweet cottage is fun to see also. Your photography is fabulous. It makes me want to get a camera and give it a try.........you make daily life..............lovely!

Leah said...

I just saw that you are listed as a vendor for the little craft show! Just getting to meet you in person is enough of an incentive to go but I also can't wait to see what you will be selling.

Autumn Season said...

It would be great to see more glimpses of your house because I am a sucker for decorating and design. Additionally, I love your instagram style posts, and it would be great to see some more of that here. Hmmmmm, I love hearing about the homesteading life and what is going on at the farm.
Plus, crafts!

Melissa said...

I miss seeing more posts about you and your husband's time together.

Jane said...

I just love your blog. Thank you for sharing this little part of your world. I live in Australia so much of what you cover is not the same for me, but please continue because your posts often bring a smile to my face!

Aliesha Caldwell said...

Gift ideas are always my favorite! I love your blog. :)

Lisa said...

Hi Natalie, I really love your blog! Thank you so much for taking so much time and energy to work on it!
I always really enjoy the beautiful photos of your home and sure wouldn't mind seeing more.
What I really, really would love to see more of is the farm and your garden! I would love to learn more about how you grow that much incredible food! Also hearing about the animals is always fun too. I don't know if that would be something you would consider, but I could imagine Luke doing some horticultural post if he ever wanted too.
Anyways thanks for all your work, I love reading here <3

Rachel C. said...

I'd love more posts on keeping goats and chickens and on gardening. As well as more canning tutorials!
Love your blog:)

I recently found your blog. I LOVE it! I love everything about it. My heart years for the freedom and love that comes from you. I would love to see more fashion 2nd hand inspiration. I visit our local thrift stores and come out with nothing. I just don't have the vision. I'm the type that buys 5 of the same shirt in different colors (shades of black, gray and ivory) because I am scared of taking a risk. You always look beautiful!

Thank you for being you, original and beautiful.
