Back to reality

07/23

We had such an awesome two week visit with my sister and her two boys. Everyday, we planned out something fun- shopping, splash park, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, picnics, play places, etc. I believe I added about 30 thousand miles to my car (my parents live about 45 minutes away). It was so worth it though. I just love these people. 

 

 

We attended the local duck race where there were kid games, food, music, and good ole fashion fun. 

 

I was even able to squeeze in a date night with this handsome husband of mine:

 

Now that my sis is safely back in CO, it is time to get down to business here on Brown Acre. I've taken some great photos of the garden for a July garden update later this week. 

Also on the agenda (my to-do list is a mile long) is getting items made and gathered to be submitted to a few different shops- some local, others a little further away. I'll keep ya updated on that=). Super pumped!

For all you locals, there is a new little shop called All things herbal, which is right downtown, next to the new coffee shop and veterans square. It is such a cool shop!! I'll be installing a Pretty Pickle section in the front of the store later on this week.  In the main part of the shop, they sell all kinds of organic and local foods and stuff. From venison and chicken to cheeses and breads. So stinkin' cool for Fairmont. Be sure to check it out!! 

Come back later this week for garden photos (and a peek at the baby chicks!)

And I’m terrible sorry for not updating more often this summer!…"

“Keep Momming”

07/10
"Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.…"
