rich topsoil courtesy of Ellenberger Organic Farms
grass seed
some one's first mouthful of good clean soil

first batch of sun tea warming on the deck
farmer's tan in progress
homemade spaghetti and meatballs

dirt under my fingernails
herb, tomato, and pepper seeds started
organic root beer and cider
a freezer full of organic beef and pork
the highly anticipated arrival of our new retro phone

a tidy and fairly organized house
enjoying the newly made patio set from found objects and cedar stumps
child benefit cheque from the government {God, I love this country!}

It is on days like this that my heart swells with gratitude for the life that I am so blessed to live and for the husband and family members who have made it so possible. I am living the life of my dreams and a simple thank you never seems to suffice. It is my goal to live each day with gratitude and to do each of them proud.


  1. What a joy it is to watch your dreams happening! Thanks for sharing! I'll be writing blogs like yours about my family someday, you bet I will. Thanks for inspiring me over and over. xo

  2. Ah...we just had our first mouthful of sand the other day...those delightful little scientists that we call toddlers!!!!
    Lovely little blog you have here, and your beautiful pictures speak to the fact that you do indeed have so very much to be grateful for, (as do so many of us)!
    In gratitude

  3. it is the simplest acts and moments of each day that I am the most grateful for.

  4. My parents had a phone like that when I was little and I've always planned to get one when I have my own house.

  5. Lovely. I'm very familiar with that swelling feeling you speak of!

  6. Oh yes, you have so much to be grateful for! I had that enamel cooking pot back in the day (I have no idea why I didn't keep it!!)

  7. i love the peek into your home. and, how i can so relate to this post (except the cheque part!)

  8. Oh Erin, I'm delighted to find you again! For some crazy reason I took a peek at your old blog today and found my way here. I'm so glad I did.

    I'm off to catch up with you. Poppy has grown so much. Such a little sweet pea!

    Hope you're enjoying a beautiful, spring filled weekend!
