Sharing again because this shot is just too cute not to share. And giggling to myself remembering the rodeo thst ensued when we tried to convince Eli’s little Lamb, Cream to wear this flower crown. Hence the lopsided crown.)

  • I found the coolest little guy in my garden. In Vegas he would be a pipe cleaner you would find at the craft store. 😆 #mycountrylife

  • If you’ve been following us for a while, you probably know that we love taking the old and making it new again. And if you’re new here, welcome!

This car is a relic of past years on the farm, and we thought she deserved a special role as the official greeter of all  visitors who enter. If you stop by, don’t forget to wave hello 👋

  • It looks SO country. That’s ok, I love it and it functions exactly like I want and we need it too. Trying to get the house in order since January has been the slowest thing ever. Partly because during that time, outside has been a focus and partly because I move like a sloth these days. 🤰. I was trying to really go through things before Texas, but never finished. After we got back things became a disaster. Between me spending nearly 3 months in bed sick and Clayton on the loose, the house had little hope. 
I started making slow progress in January. It makes it both better and worse that I’m not just cleaning up, but literally, cleaning out every drawer, nook and cranny. I want everything to have a place and be tidy and everything that isn’t loved or purposeful gone. During this process, everything has gotten dumped on and around the dining table. BUT I can finally see the finish line 🙌. This space was part of the process. It felt too cluttered and wasn’t functioning the best it could. So I moved out the big chunky piece of furniture that had lived here and replaced it with the two pieces I put together. Now our trash can is hidden, my veggie storage is in the kitchen where it belongs and everything feels more open, airy, simple and clean. It seriously feels SO good. 
Every time I get a space and the things in it cleaned out and up, I can literally feel a little weight lifted off my soul. It is amazing! Knowing all that extra crap that isn’t necessary is gone👌. And what’s left all belongs, has a place and serves a purpose 👌. “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” -William Morris

  • Notre premier jour.
Tel un personnage romanesque, il nous a tout d’abord fait une démonstration de trot puis de galop prouvant ainsi qu’un âne possède autant d’élégance qu’un cheval.
La tête haute et le cou bien droit il s’est approché de moi. Nous nous sommes retrouvé face à face. Son regard plein de bonté ne me quittait pas des yeux comme s’il voulait m’offrir son plus joli sourire. Je lui ai chuchoté que je le trouvais beau et fringant. Il a baissé la tête, l’air un peu timide, et l’a frottée contre mon ventre. Je l’ai serrée dans mes bras. Puis joue contre joue nous avons discuté tout bas. Je recevais les caresses de ses lèvres sur mes doigts comme un cadeau. Nous n’étions plus des inconnus.
Ces instants, ces sensations, ces sentiments construisent une histoire qui s’écrit dans ma mémoire, un récit qui fera partie de mes souvenirs toute ma vie.

Un homme, un chien, un coq; il manquait un quatrième mousquetaire à mon armée de cape et d’épée qui ne pouvait s’appeler autrement que D’ARTAGNAN!!!
.
Nuestro primer día.
Como un personaje novelesco, nos hizo primero una demostración de trote y luego de galope, demostrando así que un burro posee tanta elegancia como un caballo. Con la cabeza alta y el cuello bien erigido se acercó a mi. Nos encontramos cara a cara. Su mirada de bondad no me quitaba los ojos de encima como si quisiera ofrecerme su sonrisa más bonita. Le susurré que me parecía guapo y apuesto. Bajó la cabeza, con aires de timidez, y la frotó contra mi vientre. La abraze. Luego mejilla contra mejilla hablamos bajito. Recibía las caricias de sus labios en mis dedos como un regalo. Ya no éramos extraños.
Estos instantes, estas sensaciones, estos sentimientos construyen una historia que se escribe en mi memoria, un relato que formará parte de mis recuerdos durante toda mi vida.

Un hombre, un perro, un gallo; le faltaba un cuarto mosquetero a mi ejército de capa y espada que solo se podía llamar D'ARTAGNAN!!!

  • [APPARENZE]
🌬Nella vita cerchiamo sempre di apparire nel modo migliore, di vestirci come la moda ci impone, di fare le ore piccole e di bere alcolici; perché se non fai i risvoltini ai jeans non sei fashion, perché se preferisci trascorrere una serata in casa sei noiosa, perché se non bevi non sai divertirti!😓
Sono stufa di queste regole, stufa di dover seguire stereotipi che non sono i miei, di dover esser sempre io a dover "cambiare" per essere accettata.😒
.
"Meglio soli che mal accompagnati" dice il detto, probabilmente è vero...ma soli si starà mai veramente bene? Bè la risposta è no, ma sono sicura che al mondo esistono persone come me, "DIVERSE" che non significa migliori, ma semplicemente AFFINI al mio vedere e sentire.💛 La difficoltà più grande però, consiste nel trovarle!😌🍃
Forse sono io a pretendere troppo?

  • Ses yeux en forme d’amande et son regard attendrissant me conquirent dès le début, en photo, avant même de la connaître.
Je me suis présentée à elle en la regardant dans les yeux et en lui murmurant des mots doux. Impossible de ne pas prendre cette bouille à bisous dans mes bras alors, je l’ai embrassée. Elle a posé sa tête sur mon épaule. Mes mains ne cessaient de la caresser. Nous poursuivions notre première conversation comme si on se racontait un secret. Cette échange d’affection, de tendresse et déjà d’amour; il était là notre secret. 
Un moment précieux et délicieux que je n’oublierai jamais.

Amandine est le diminutif d'Amanda dont l'origine latine vient du verbe amare. Sa signification est "la petite affectueuse".
Son prénom ne pouvait être un autre.
Ma grosse et douce peluche adorée s’appelle donc AMANDINE.
.
Sus ojos en forma de almendra (amande en francés) y su mirada tierna me conquistaron desde el principio, en foto, incluso antes de conocerla.
Me presenté a ella mirándola a los ojos y susurrándole palabras dulces. Imposible no querer abrazar esa carita y cubrirla de besos, así es que rodee su cabeza con mis brazos. La puso sobre mi hombro. Mis manos no dejaban de acariciarla. Continuábamos nuestra primera conversación como si nos estuviésemos contando un secreto. Este intercambio de afecto, de ternura y ya de amor; ese era nuestro secreto. Un momento precioso y delicioso que no olvidaré jamás.

Amandine (Amandina en español) es el diminutivo de Amanda cuyo origen latino proviene del verbo Amare. Su significado es "la pequeña cariñosa". Su nombre no podía ser otro.
Mi peluchin adorado se llama por tanto AMANDINE.

  • Easter Colt Start // Classy 6yo Arab - Ranga // Sequence of photos illustrating the proper process of mounting a young horse. Nice flex, very relaxed. Horse is happy and confident. This was the start of his second ride.

  • It was absolutely gorgeous out today. The sky was a milky blue, and the tiny leaves on the trees were a bright translucent green. I could have gone for hours. Do you know that feeling?

  • So, the other day my husband said something to me that made me think deeply about my purpose for this account. He asked me why don’t I post more often because we’ve been making so much progress on the house. I told him I didn’t feel like I was in a good place right now to share our home. So many other accounts in this community are filled with finished products and beautifully styled homes, it made me feel like ours would fail in comparison. But that’s just it...I was comparing our chapter in life to someone else’s. I have been doing myself and all my husband’s hard work injustice. I didn’t create this account to gain a 100,000 followers. I didn’t create this account to make money. I didn’t create this account looking for a career. I created this account to be inspired by others in hopes to inspire someone else within this great community of home builders, designers, and moms. Within that aspiration I got lost in everything being perfectly displayed and “finished” while deliberating each picture I took and if it would flow perfectly in my feed. I got caught up in the daily struggle of being a mama to two small kids and not having time for myself to do something I enjoy. Well, not anymore! Who cares if my photos aren’t professionally displayed, staged, or edited? I’m not here for that. I’m here to share our journey - the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly. I’m here to share our incredibly unique story of building our own home on my family farm. I’m here to share my vision, hopes, and dreams for our home. I’m here sometimes just to vent about the daily struggles as a mom with two small kids just so I don’t feel alone in this world. I’m here to document all of our hard work so I can reflect on it again someday and feel humbled. Everyone has their own story as does every home. Welcome to ours! I look forward to sharing more with all of you! ❤️ #loveyourhome #whitefarmhouse #farmhouse #farmhouseinspired #tuesdaythoughts #newhome #newbuild #lovetohome #modularfarmhouse #frontporch #southerncharm #southernstyle #countryside #countryliving #farmhousedesign #farmhouselove #momlife #momproblems #mommyhood #thisisus #mycountryhome #mycountrylife #homesweethome
