Angi  Creating a simple and beautiful life.

It’s real winter now according to my 4 year old. ❤️ our view after a foot of snow yesterday. We are cozy by the fire!

The first bit of “real” winter came yesterday for the kids. ❄️ Basically just a bunch of flakes that immediately turned into a muddy mess, but they were thrilled. ❤️

Hey everyone! I have been M.I.A. for the last few months, and I finally have a video explaining why!! Link in profile.

Safe from the frost. #autumn #frost

Power is out. Homemade candle in a jar. Listening to the rain of #hurricanemichael and heading to bed, because going to bed 2 hours early is sleeping in 2 hours! I could stay up and read with a flashlight but I’m cozying up in bed to sleep instead. Here’s to hoping I managed to turn off all the light switches that were on so I won’t be woken by blinding light when the power comes back on... 😁

Look at those baby faces! 5 years ago today... ❤️❤️❤️

I’m rather relieved that the bulk #Hurricaneflorence missed our area, but it has definitely made for a week of steady rain. Dark skies and mud all day every day. Cozy, but a little difficult to dig post holes for grape trellises when I’m up to my ankles in muck. So I’ve been fall cleaning instead! Itching to get back outside and get things ✅!

Newly planted strawberry beds! 15’x30. The strawberries have been taking over too much of my vegetable garden, so I moved 1/3 of them to this bed that is dedicated to strawberries (with some chives for optimal growing) and the remaining 2/3 of the strawberries will be planted around the fruit trees when they go in later this week. Things are starting to come together!!!

The oats are up!! We have been so busy with so many new and fun steps here on the farm. I’m going to be sharing bits of a few of our projects over the next week. 😊

Another batch of winter ready tomatoes coming out of the canner, and the garden transitioning to greens and roots rather than summer’s soft vegetable goodness. My favorite thing to do is live in the moment. Today. Not mourning the end of summer or putting on boots and scarves because I’m wanting fall to be here now. So I eat summer tomatoes and fall greens, and savor the humid misting weather that is neither summer or fall. All the seasons can be your favorite when you live in the beauty of each day. 🌎🌒

My parenting style= please go play outside for as long as possible. Sometimes this is what happens. 😂

The flowers keep coming! Pollinators galore have been in my garden all year and it’s reassuring after hearing so many city friends who don’t see the butterflies and bees anymore.
