hello horses, goodbye goats.
We said goodbye to Latte + Milky Way last week. It wasn’t an easy decision but they are now keeping a mama llama company while her baby is weened. It was so fun to experience raising baby goats(not milking goats). They were great companions for Cookie until her new boyfriend got here.
Speaking of boyfriends… have you met Scooter? He’s the tall, dark and handsome guy. Cookie is the little lady. She’s a few years older, so she’s a bit of a cougar.
Making new images for my Revel Designs blog…
An addition to the kitchen.
Come take a peek at my latest home reno project.
There was sort of a closet/storage space under the staircase. It was creepy, dark, unfinished and had plywood floors.
As an owner of every gadget/appliance under the ☀️ I needed more kitchen storage.
It’s right off the kitchen, so it’s so perfect. It’s white, bright, fresh, and clean! Pretty and organized speaks to me.
Autumn in Maine
Fall is so beautiful here but way too short. Another apple season has come and gone.
All of the glowing leaves have fallen.
Winter is quickly approaching. Brrrr. Thank you fall for easing us into it.
this is my hoME.
As I sit on the dock of my grandparents’ camp for the very last time, I am filled so many different emotions. Nostalgia, joy, sadness, contentment, gratitude just to name a few.
Maine has such a special place in my ❤️ and all of those memories are tied to my grands. Some of my first memories include visiting my great uncle’s family farm in Brooks. I loved waking up to fresh bacon and cuddling cats in the barn, hoping that Grandma would let me bring one home. I had the craziest section of cowlick hair and the air in Maine was the only thing that could tame it.
I had never really experienced camp life until my grands bought their camp in Maine. So secluded, so peaceful, and the only place you could stay up all night doing a puzzle.
They later moved to Maine full time and visiting was always a joy. It truly is Vacationland.
I know there’s so much story in between- but fast forward and here we are. We live here now. After living here for 3 years, we see it through a different lens but no less magical. Breathtaking views and new adventures around every turn. Only time will tell how long we are in Maine but this is where God has placed us for now and we are going to soak in every moment while we are here.
Spring barn refresher.
I spent all day in the barn today. Cleaning up, putting winter equipment away, and getting lots of funny looks from these guys.
Feels so good! I also built a manure/compost bin from pallets and t-posts. Not work for the faint of heart but I did it!
Ready for a fresh start!
This is the string that led to my girls’ Easter treats. I used over a roll all around the house and yard for them to follow to where their presents were hiding. I’m so glad it was a nice day. It was a refreshing and new way to hide goodies.
Soak in Every Second.
