I have no idea how this little egg found its way to this. But it is one of the prettiest things I've seen up against this small Japanese dish and an old church hymnal that sits in our living room. Sometimes the simplest of beauties happen when you least expect them. Appreciate them when you can. I've come to enjoy these natural beauties each and every day. The simple life is the best life. #simpleliving #simplelife #reallife #stilllife #eggs #fresheggs #chickens #homestead #homemaking #beautiful
I really can’t explain what it feels like to have a newborn again, almost 10 years after our last. But I can tell you this, there’s nothing like newborn grunts and kisses. And there’s always, always room for more. Love expands! 💙 #everett #boymom #newborn #fourthtrimester #reallife #motherhood #farmlife #homesteading #homestead
A few years back, I had the opportunity to photograph a historic civil war era home that a couple had just bought. They were renovating it to turn it into a wedding venue, and were trying to keep it as close to era specific as they could. Unfortunately, now years later, their plans didn’t pan out and the property has been re-sold to another buyer. One that I hope embraces the integrity of this beautiful plantation home. I thought I’d share a few photos with you, since I know you enjoy old things just like I do. Words really can’t describe the beauty, history, and amazing farm life behind this home, right in the town I grew up in. If only I had a million dollars, I would’ve bought it myself! #presqueisle #farmhouse #vintage #civilwar #renovation #fixerupper #oldthings #photographer #farmlife #plantation
I am consistently amazed by the amount of people who still look at me like I have an octopus on my face when I tell them I had a birth center birth. Their response is often, well that means you did it...naturally? Um, yes. And I had a hospital birth the first time and, guess what, I did that one naturally too! Natural is the keyword. Why is it weird and uncommon to choose to do something that is natural? Seriously? Now, they're (and maybe you) really going to think I'm crazy. Because this time around I decided to have my placenta encapsulated. Uh huh, that's right, I'm one of THOSE weirdos. But let me just tell you how incredible it has been. The healing process has gone so SO much quicker. My milk supply was incredible (before I got mastitis), and even now it's helping my milk supply come back. And the baby blues were kept further at bay this time around than the first time. And the health benefits extend far past post partum recovery. I'd do it all over again in a heart beat. Because, well, it's natural. And apparently natural is weird these days. And I'm ok with being weird if it works efficiently. I still laugh when I think about the night I had Everett, because I had originally decided not to encapsulate my placenta. But when the placenta was delivered the midwives and nurse just raved over how healthy of a placenta it was. How it was one of the biggest placentas they'd seen. etc. etc. So I figured, you know what, let's do this thing. You can find pictures of the placenta on this post (FB doesn't like placenta photos...see what I mean!?) My handsome husband even got schooled in how the placenta works, why it looks the way it does (tree of life!), etc. And thought it was the coolest thing. —-continued in comments...
