Little Free Library

In March of this year I was approached by a dear friend asking if she could commission me to build something that I'd never really heard of before. I did some online research and told her "Of Course!" However, I didn't really know what I'd gotten myself into!

Beatin' the Heat

I'm not sure what the temperatures are like in your neck of the woods...but I do know that here in Snohomish...they've been hanging out in the 80s! And if you know anything about me...you know that the good Lord built me for colder weather.

Rest Now Mr. Williams

Yesterday while scrolling through friends' posts on Facebook I let out a gasp which made Michael look at me funny. Robin Williams...dead.

Rainy Days = Comfort Food

This summer has been quite interesting to say the least around these parts! When we first moved to Snohomish it rained almost every day! And when I decided to work on my coop, it was sweltering for two weeks straight! Butthe clouds have come back every now and again...some days bringing rain...others just bringing some relief from the heat and humidity.

Ol' Fashioned Coop Raising

Moving to Snohomish has really turned into something great. Both Michael and I really enjoy the privacy we have here as well as the room to do the things we've always wanted to do. Michael can't wait until this winter when I start building the terraced gardens on our front hill...and me...well I couldn't wait to build the coop of my dreams!

This REAL Housewife is now the REAL RURAL Housewife

Hi...remember me? I'm the REAL Housewife of Snohomish County. Well folks, I have no excuse for being absent from blogging for such a long period of time! It's been over three months to be exact. As I'm sure everyone else has been experiencing, life has really changed for us in the past few months...so hopefully you'll let it slide that I have been absent so long. Will you? Please? :)

It's Spring! Kind of...

Well the official first day of spring has come and gone. Sadly, the only thing that really lets me know it's here is that I've now mowed the lawn three times! Other than that...it still feels like a dreary Seattle winter around these parts.

Napa Valley Vacation - Day 6

Today was an incredibly fun and full day! We started our day in Napa and are now getting ready for bed in Nevada City, CA. And the best part of it all...the temperature is MUCH cooler up here! (This blog was typed on 3/18...but because of no internet service it is being posted on 3/19)

Napa Valley Vacation - Day 5

Well the title of the blog changed from conference to vacation...that's right...today was the first day of our vacation! And we started it off the right way...we slept in...until 8. HAHA. Isn't that sad when sleeping in is either 7 or 8 AM! Well, it truly was decadent!

Napa Valley Conference - Day 4

Today was the final day of the Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives conference in the beautiful Napa Valley. While the days were extremely long, and some of the talks rather boring (for me personally), I'd say all in all it was a fantastic conference and the highlight of it all was definitely today.

Napa Valley Conference - Day 3

It was another gorgeous day here in the Napa Valley. I truly do feel blessed to have the life that I do, and the opportunity to travel to the places that we do. We've really enjoyed our time here so far...but that being said...the days have been very long and some of the lectures have been a bit dry.

Napa Valley Conference - Day 2

I honestly have no idea how my eyes are still open right now. It seems as if we've been here in Napa for about a week and a half...it's hard to believe we just flew in yesterday! Today was a long day with the conference going from 7 AM until 5 PM.
