I don’t care that there is snow on the ground {I am showing you this post anyways}

Snow is covering my town, rooftops and weighing down our tree branches right now. I live in Colorado so it will be fall again in two days I am most positive! There are so many things that we do that I don’t take the time to show you. I can get pretty behind in sharing photos for the grandparents (you didn’t think this blog was just for you?:-)). So, even though I can barely type right now because of the …

New Photo Shoot {Grab a spoon and eat her up}

I take all of the photos for my collections and I love it! I don’t usually take photos for other people because it is not where I have focused my attention. It is fun though when I have a chance to have a break from the norm. Recently I did a quick photo shoot of my neighbor’s daughter just for fun. I wanted to get her photos done before I left for Illinois.  Good thing I did..the leaves were almost …

Sugar and Spice {and everything nice…at least most of the time}

When Kelly and I found out we were pregnant with our second baby I was so used to being a mommy to a little boy…that I just assumed our next baby would be a boy too. When we were told our little boy was going to be a girl it took me a few days to let that sink in. Then I started to get really excited. I started thinking about dolls, Barbies, dress up, tea parties, doing nails and …

How To Celebrate a Fall Evening in Style {Welcome to NaDa Farm}

There are some that have things that they could possibly take for granted because they don’t realize how precious it is. Then there are those that completely understand the gem they have in their hands and they love on it, nurture it and create something even more lovely…that is NaDa Farm. I grew up in rural Illinois so maybe farms just pull at my heartstrings. This is not your ordinary farm though. This farm has been loved on by a …

Old Roads {and making room for the new ones}

Dinner was on the table at the farm and my children were nowhere to be found. My brother obligingly set off to find them. I also went out to check on their progress of pulling themselves away from the freedom and wonder of the farm….to obey. All three of them were running down the country lane. I rushed back into the house to grab my camera and quickly capture them, the setting sun, the light on the golden cornstalks. It …

What is your harvest?

We are currently in Illinois visiting my mom and playing on her farm. When you drive from Colorado to Illinois you have so much time to think and ponder. We usually visit the farm in the summer so to see the landscape painted in golds, yellows, reds and orange was a treat. Field after field was being harvested and it hit me like never before. These men and women have worked all year for this. The harvest. They have prayed …
