School is out, and I am ready to do another giveaway!! πŸ™‚

First things first! Β I am having a little get together at my place this Tuesday, the 23d! If you are local Β to Myerstown, and want to come, please contact me! Contact info is under the ABOUT tab, or you can message me on Facebook! I will have a few snacks and some giveaways, and will be sharing a bit about Plexus products, and how they have made a difference for us, and others. This is not a party where you feel like you have to purchase πŸ™‚ I do not carry inventory, so you can leave your wallets at home, and come listen in! It will be very relaxed πŸ™‚ Our new and improved pink drink will be available to taste, and I am more than excited about it! Added prebiotics have made this wonderful drink even better!!

Also, check out the latest blog post here, ,for some really neat ways Plexus has helped them!!


Ok!! HereΒ is the gift you can win!!

A dish towel, my favorite chocolate, a notepad, and a 3 day trial of 2 of my favorite natural products πŸ™‚ The trial pack includes the newΒ Plexus Slim, which is a blood sugar balancing drink ( think all day sustained energy), and Edge is our natural energy product. I use the pink drink daily, and Edge for days when I am extra busy, or did not have much sleep. My hubby loves Edge as well, for when he is running around the clock. πŸ™‚

Valentines Supper

I don’t always do this for Valentines Day, but this year I felt like it πŸ™‚ So I pulled out the china, and the glasses that were collecting dust, and tried to make my valentines feel a bit special! I had fun snapping pictures too πŸ™‚img_20170214_151403_370 img_6899_edited-1The centerpiece was cranberries and greens…Β  Β  img_6885The food….img_6903A little snitch πŸ™‚Β img_6904_edited-1 img_6905_edited-1A candle lit view…img_6896_edited-1img_6901_edited-1img_6900I spoiled them with cranberry ginger ale and everyone got a chocolate rose.img_6902_edited-1My happy crew. And real life!Β We did not get dressed up πŸ™‚ Hubby was at his side job, and after milking, I came in from the barn to his phone call. “Sorry, but I won’t be home till after 7:30. So we ate without him πŸ™‚ Well, life doesn’t always go exactly how we planned, does it? But by the looks of it, it was a pretty big hit all around πŸ™‚img_6906_edited-1Happy Monday , friends!!

A change.

The new year has begun, and with it a few changes.

After getting several calls about taking photos for people, and turning them down, I thought this might be a good place to address the changes I’m implementing πŸ™‚

I have decided to cut back on my photography. I still enjoy it, and may do it for a few family members or friends, Β but I need to reevaluate and prioritize.

I am busy being a mom and also doing all the book work and bill paying for the farm, helping milk a few times a week, and working out of our home with my health and wellness business.

I am honestly getting more joy out of sharing health with others than I did with photography, and that is why I’m keeping photography as a hobby of sorts for now πŸ™‚

Messages from those that say how much better they feel, how they have fewer headaches, weight loss, lower blood pressure, not as much pain, etc., are what drives me to do what I do! πŸ™‚

So for now, you’ll still see pictures on the blog, and I’ll still write if God lays something on my heart, but I will not be doing any sessions. Unless perhaps you beg nicely, haπŸ˜‰

And if you are looking for something to do on Thursday evening, Β I’d love to see you! πŸ™‚sip-and-see_edited-1



Last post of the year! :)

I missed posting this at Christmas, so here is our family,lovely self timer shot and all πŸ™‚ Really, it involved a lot of exercise for the mom, as I ran back and forth so many times, the children were done,Β and finally said “Ok, that’s a wrap!”, and we get what we get πŸ™‚ So maybe next year I should hire someone πŸ™‚img_6651_edited-1As I shared before, this year was tough, and yet full of blessings, and we grow more when we have to struggle, do we not? I am looking to the new year, new goals, and I’m excited for what God has in store!! One of my goals is to do something nice for somebody every day. Whether it involves something big or little. I can tell you that God has been working on me, to nudge me to do more, because I have so much. To be honest, some days I feel like I don’t have much. But that is the devil’s tactics. And how can I learn contentment if I always look at those that seem to have it better?Β  I’m a work in progress, and still fail miserably some days! πŸ™‚

Our oldest is 14! She enjoys school, her friends,Β holding her baby brother, and time with her horse. Cleaning and barn chores are not her favorite thing, but sheΒ is a big help to me!!

Our oldest son is 11, and he has been such a great helper lately! He loves to get up at 3:30 a.m.Β to help his dad milk, and we have to limit that to 3 or 4 times a week, because he does need sleep to handle school and it’s challenges! I alsoΒ love how he has been making his bed very neatly each morning without me telling him to πŸ™‚ Of course he is a normal child, thinking he knows pretty much, and fighting his siblings, but we definitely are seeing some positive changes πŸ™‚

Next in line is our “farm boy”. He is 8, 9 next month, and still loves his cows, playing farm, and getting dirty πŸ™‚ He is a strong willed child, and hard to handle sometimes, yet he has a soft heart. We have seen huge improvements in him with school, and he almost made honor roll! We are so grateful for the supplements that we are certain are helping him, and I love listening to him read, and hearing him talk about school!

Next in line is our spitfire πŸ™‚ She turned 5 in Nov., and is full of energy and creativity. She was “the baby” for so long, that she is still a bit jealous of her baby brother, but she sure does love him! Her will is strong, and she is so independent that it drives her momma crazy sometimes, but who likes boredom anyways?? πŸ™‚

And then our newest blessing. He is 6 mo. already! The children still fight over him multiple times a day πŸ™‚Β He is chubby, and full of smiles, and recently started rolling. He has a cheering crew for everything he does πŸ™‚

We are blessed! My prayer for you all is that 2017 is a year of new growth, stronger relationships, and full of blessings from our heavenly Father!!

Thanks to all my followers who check in onΒ my little space here! I appreciate it!

Bring on 2017!! πŸ™‚
