Change is in the air

For all my Cali friends and lack of seasons.. my drive to work!

Don’t judge, I know I shouldn’t take pictures and drive..

I love how empty the road is in the morning. You get the full effect of the beauty.

I know this wont last long…

Can you see the leaves changing?

Got some red in there

Imagine this as your yard, what a view!!!

Mike just loves this so I had to get a picture.

There is a turkey. I actually came to a full stop for this one. Usually they are in groups of about 20, he was all alone.

Probably my favorite color on a tree so far!

Until we meet again….

Watch our garden grow

We are desperately trying to get our garden finished. I keep asking myself, why is this taking so long??? This we we planned to finish. It would be beautiful outside and we would go out to garden, and within minutes, rain!!!!! It has rained all week on us.

We did manage to garden a bit, this crabgrass is crazy! Biggest part of our gardening is pulling it to clear the other space we want to be able to use.

I have discovered that something magical happens when you ask the kids to take pictures for you. Lincoln had my phone to capture Jaxx, and I just love the photos he captured! Jaxx is doing a great job pulling up the crab grass, when he isn’t busy playing with the hose and soaking himself and everything else within spraying distance.


We plan to finish up this week. Buying more plants!!!!

We currently have 3 different types of tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, cauliflower, dragon peppers, basil and a blueberry bush. I only have a few photos but will keep posting as we watch our garden grow.

It has been a fun project plating together with the kiddos. They are super excited to be able to pick their own food. I am hoping it will make Jaxxon try more veggies….


I toyed around with this post all night. Do I post or not?? That was really my big question.

So I decided it would be fun to play a little game. Never have I ever… Have you played?

So we recently bought an old farmhouse in Maine, and we love it. Our home was built in 1794, 224 year ago. Additions is mid 1800’s, so still a long time ago.

I would love to see your comments on things that you never ever had to go through prior to moving into a new place of your own.

Here is mine!

Never have I ever had to use a toilet plunger so often.

We have a strict no wipes down the toilet, we don’t need them in the leach field. So that isn’t the cause. But I feel that every few days after the little ones go to the bathroom, we are always having to plunge the toilets. So it made me think. Do these kids poop bigger than they did 200 years ago? Our toilets aren’t 200 years old so it has to be the plumbing system.

What have you encountered that you never thought you would have to go through? Leave me a comment!


The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I honestly have no idea what I am doing here. Who would have thought I would be sitting in front of my computer typing a blog. I usually just share photos on Facebook and Instagram, I don’t even know how to use twitter!!! But blogging it is.

We recently embarked on the journey of our lives. I am a 44 year old mother of 4 and I have always been a city girl. Born and bred right outside of Los Angeles, Ca. How much more city can you ask for. I always had that nudge and tug on my heart to be in the county. And here we are, uprooted and moved to Maine. How much further from CA could we get?

Thank you for joining me on this journey. I will try my best to keep you entertained, once I figure this whole thing out. I think I just need to go day by day and a little back step once in awhile to let you know how it all started.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
