Growing a Family, While Growing a Business

I recently posted on my Instagram page a video of beeswax melting over a double boiler. I said, “If you would have told me a year ago that I would be watching beeswax melt as my job, I would have laughed at you!” But,…

Making A Life Change

It’s funny how life throws you curve balls when you least expect it. That’s exactly how I would sum up 2017.  Our little family seems to be on a constant whirlwind of practices, ballgames, meetings, school activities, farm duties, work duties and occasional playdates…

Two things that pair perfectly…chocolate and bananas!  This Chocolate Banana Bread is one of my family’s favorite sweet treats for breakfast, snack time or an after dinner dessert. A trick from my kitchen: I peel and freeze overly ripe banana and store in the…

Flag Football Season Here We GO!

As baseball season winds down for Caston, we enter the fall football season.  Caston LOVES football and the kid has some fancy feet and can catch the ball like a rockstar.  It’s hard to believe he’s only a six-year-old!  We can’t wait to see…

Summertime Fun In Snapshots

Our family’s summer has been filled full of backyard gardening, farm to table dinners, trips to my favorite place in 417 Land (Farmers Market of the Ozarks), lake trips and much more…and July and August are still left. We made a McConnell Summer Bucket…

What snow days are all about- family fun!

Holiday Fun in 2014

I hope your holiday was filled with joyful family memories, good eats and lots of laughter!  As I watched our children this holiday learn new skills, become more independent and make new friends- I realized that my husband and I are just part of…

Cora Turns TWO

I’m finding watching my children’s little years fly past me at a rapid speed these days. Cora, my youngest, turned T-W-O on July 12th. While I was planning her party there was a point where I was in disbelief that she could already be…
