New Beginnings

This is my first ever blog post. I guess you could say I’ve been a long time reader, first time writer. I really wasn’t sure of including a blog portion on the website I am a very private person. The idea of sharing personal ideas and photos with total strangers doesn’t make me comfortable. But people have been telling me for years to write a blog to cover all my creative do-it-yourself projects and family fun ideas. Over the years I’ve made my own barn door in my kitchen, made my own backyard fire pit, chalk painted my entire kitchen cabinets (black), wall papered many rooms, made my own light fixtures, painted a mural wall.. the list goes on.

Now, as I embark on a brand new stage of my life as a business owner in a picturesque, and natural environment, I feel like I have a lot to be grateful for and because of that a lot I have to share.

I hope you will follow me on my adventure as I leave the corporate world of stale air, no windows, nonproductive meetings, and developing a hunchback over my computer, and discover the total happiness of digging in the dirt, helping things grow and sharing genuine experiences with people.

It may be a bit of a hard go at first. I don’t expect it to be all sunshine and rosemary. I know there will be piles of shit along the garden path (figuratively and quite literally – we got a load of horse manure), but I also know we have a great support system in our family, close friends, and the previous owners have been great mentors.

So the next time you see me and there is dirt under my finger nails, know that no matter what kind of day I’ve had. I’m grateful for that dirt. The sight of it will bring a smile to face and make the journey, no matter how hard, totally worth it.  I will be happy to share on this blog all the dirt there is on how I’m learning to embrace a life that is more deeply rooted in nature.
