Friday Night Garden Tour

I’m back from my work trip/vacation and have a ton of photos to share. But first … I took some pics of my gardens tonight. The lighting was perfect – the mosquitos were not. (I risked a zillion bites for all these photos! Ha!) I’ll be back soon to write about our East Coast road […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | Flower Power

How was your weekend?  Ours was nice and uneventful at home. We golfed, we enjoyed time on our patio, and today I packed up my suitcase for the next two weeks. I’m off to Washington DC tomorrow morning for a work-related conference and I’m looking forward to seeing my turkey peeps for a few days. […] Read more…

What I’m Wearing | LuLaRoe

Life has been crazy busy since June so I haven’t had as much time to blog at all – much less blog any recipes (which take a little more time) or sneak in a Turkey Tuesday post – sorry about that! But it’s been a great summer so far, and we’re looking forward to a […] Read more…

Keeping It Real

I often hear from people who think I have it all going on. How do I work full time plus blog (not just for me but for other websites too) plus do what I do for my family?  The truth is, it depends on the day you ask me. Some weeks I’m very organized. I’m […] Read more…

Saturday Garden Blooms

July is nearing and that means the gardens are really starting to come into their own. The lilacs and peonies are long gone, but they are replaced by asiatic lilies, colorful annuals, and soon-to-bloom coneflowers, rudbeckia, hydrangea, and daisies. I so love every season of the garden as each is different and has its own […] Read more…

Farmers Learn & Network, Too!

A week ago I was in Duluth to kick off the summer conference of the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association. This event is a chance for our members – the turkey farmers, turkey companies, and related industry folks in our state – to get together, network, and learn.
