A Simple Life 2013

It has been quite a year around our home. Many blessings and changes and as always two parents trying to keep it going in what we call "organized chaos". 

We love home and family and though life is often exhausting and leaves us falling into bed at night, it is not lost on us how much we have and are thankful for.

We gardened and raised kids and animals and survived another very hot summer.
We had a child spread her wings and fly the coop while we had some new chickens actually come to live in our real coop.

The holidays are here and we are busy getting the house together and have been decking the halls all weekend. 2013 has been a great year and I am looking forward to some new adventures in 2014 but mostly to this little simple life I cherish the most.


  1. Looking forward to reading your sweet blog in 2014! I'm also excited to see your Christmas decorations, they are always so adorable :) xoxoxo

  2. You do have a beautiful life, and a beautiful family Elaine, so much to be thankful for!

  3. Well, I know that I enjoy knowing you through the blogosphere….you and your sweet little family! You do have a simple life, but it's so *rich*….
