I am back.
I miss blogging. And the other thing is, I have a lot of opinions swirling in my head and voicing them to only my husband gets boring. He's heard it all before so I think he tends to nod and agree anymore, not really hearing what I say :)
2012 was trying for me. Lots of ups and downs.
A special little boy turned 1 -- gosh, now he is almost ready to turn 2!
And I also became prego with my second child -- which contributed a lot to the lack of tending to this blog. I am not a person who glows being prego. In fact, the only glow coming off me is probably from the sweat that develops on my face after I dry heave every other minute of EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! We are in the home stretch now though, and soon we'll be welcoming another little bundle on the farm!
I also took a plunge and have started my own business with Essential Oils. There will be many more post on this to come - trust me!
Many of you were following along with my sweet mare, Gypsy. I am so sad to say she did not pull through and she passed peacefully, near her pasture with her herd on Sunday, September 16. She let me know it was time, and even though it was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, I know it was the right decision. I miss her so much every single day. There will truly never be another horse like her in my lifetime. And I know her herd misses her too. It sucks. It was a low point of my 2012.
Alas, 2013 is now upon us. And any year ending in a 13 HAS to be a good year, right?
So, I am hoping to dive back into my blog. To talk about life, REAL food, kids, farming and anything else that tickles my fancy.
Tried any new recipes lately? Care to share?
