Life on the Farm

Life has been a bit busy lately. So much so that I haven't even had time to think about this blog. I'm trying to get back in the swing of things because a lot of exciting things are coming up (including my very first giveaway thanks to Shauna Niequist!).

Last weekend we made a trip to Missouri to celebrate my baby brother's birthday. He doesn't technically turn 16 until this Friday, but since I'm not able to make it home then, we celebrated early. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of him or our time together.

I did, however, get photos from our time at the farm. Last Friday Todd and I woke up early to feed the cows with Grandpa Joe. Todd's parents were at work and his grandmother was out of town, so it was just the three of us. We were up with the sun and bundled from head to toe. The temperature was a freezing 24 degrees when we stepped outside.

I had my camera in hand and when I wasn't shaking from the cold, I snapped a few photos. I felt a bit like the Pioneer Woman that morning, and one day I think I'd like to trade the corporate world for life on the farm.

I'll be back soon with new recipes and a giveaway!


  1. these pictures are fantastic! what camera/lens did you use. i am in the market for a good camera.

  2. LOVE these shots. And that you might want to end up on a farm someday. And just you in general.

  3. I love your pictures!

    I don't think I know what 24-degree weather feels like. I know I'm missing out! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Great pics, Tara! So clear! Looks like a nice little retreat.
