Category: Life…ever changing

Missouri Public Affairs Inductee

It isn’t everyday that you find yourself surrounded by so much love, but over the last four months that is exactly what I’ve experienced from professionals, friends, family, businesses, and farmers market customers that I see out and about.   It was in 2003…

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,…

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

We hope your holiday was fabulous and that you can ring in the New Year with cherished friends and family!  (Photo Credit to the very talented and beautiful Chelsea Dygert)

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…

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…

Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Sandwiches

It’s true.  Most moms today fuel up on caffeine, chaos and probably a few choice cuss words in the morning as they rush to get their littles out the door for school.  As a mom-on-the-go I am always looking for easy ways to feed…

Thanksgiving Blessings

As I wash up my kitchen from another day of Thanksgiving baking, I am surrounded by my two favorite smells: Pumpkin and Pecan Pie.  Both smells resinate the holiday season for me and bring back so many good memories. This year I am thankful…

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…

Snow Day Fun

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…

Being A Present Parent

Miss fancy pants turned 20 months over the weekend and we decided a trip to Andy’s Frozen Custard was fitting! Why was it fitting…because nothing is sweeter than Cora’s little face. Well…maybe one thing her big brother’s dimples. Well shucks- let’s call it a…
