Summer Photos//feat. Random Things About My Summer

Hey Everyone!

I’ve taken a bunch of pictures this summer and I am (of course) excited to share them with you all as I tell you a bit about my summer. So let’s not bother with a meaningless intro.


I got to spend an amazing week at summer camp. I am so thankful for the wonderful memories I made and the time I got to spend there.

My grandparents visited, It was good to see them and the time flew by as it always does.

I have gotten to go (big) blueberry picking twice. Although I do not enjoy it as much as strawberry picking it is still something I love.

Reading everyday for several hours is my favorite part of summer. I have read more books than I can count, well not quite but close. One of my favorite places to read is in my wonderful Wise Owl hammock, that I got for Christmas last year.

As I have mentioned before I love fresh, local veggies, and being able to work with them has definitely been a highlight of my summer. I love making salads for my mom, using whatever fresh veggies we have around.

Life here on the farm has been as crazy and wonderful as it always is during the summer, non-stop work for my parents and lots of sunshine.

It is so hard for me to believe that the summer is already so close to being over. Summer always flies by, unlike winter, unfortunately.

I keep having to remind myself to enjoy August and not constantly be thinking about how sad I am that it is August.

I love fall and I love spring and sometimes I enjoy winter, but nothing ever compares to summer, ever. In some ways all fall and winter we live for spring and summer, especially if you are a farmer. We have to prepare for calving and then cheesemaking and then haying and markets and the list goes on and on.

It’s always hard to come to August and realize that summer is almost over, you look at your summer goals and are amazed by all that you haven’t accomplished and all you want to do before summer is over.

Honestly, I am nowhere near ready for the new school year to start and whatever challenges it will bring my way, so I am going to enjoy every last moment and hour day of my summer.

I challenge you to enjoy every last minute, day and hour of your summer (or at least as much of it as possible). 🙂


How has your summer been? What are some things you are hoping to accomplish this month? Do you have a favorite picture from this post?

Weekly Verse #17

Hey Everyone!

I am so sorry that this post is a couple days late again! I plan to be back on schedule from now on.

Another Maya photo, since you all seemed to like the lsat one so much! 😀
A sky and snow photo!

Our verse for this week is:

Psalm 143.8

Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning, for in you I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

This is such a beautiful verse and prayer. We all want to hear of God’s steadfast love and I think this is a wonderful prayer to ask to hear of God’s love.

What stands out to you from this verse? Anything? Which picture is your favorite? Do you like cat pictures or sky pictures better?

Snow Photos!

Hey Everyone!

I am really happy to (finally) share the pictures I took a couple weeks ago of the snow. I thought about waiting another week since we are getting more snow, but I want to share them today. Just warning you, though, I will probably be posting more snow photos soon. 😀


I love how the snow on the green grass looks. In person the grass was even greener.

This picture makes me think of a brook. I love the contrast of the dark wet rocks to the fresh white snow.

More snowflakes, the reddish color of the stump is so beautiful.

More snowflakes and moss. ❤️


The orange fungus, white snow, dark bark combo is so pretty!

Snowflake and bark close up. I love this picture. I think this one is my favorite from this bunch of pictures.

One of our barn cats, Maya. She let me take quite a few pictures of her. This one turned out the best. 😀


Which picture is your favorite? Why??

Thanks for taking the time to scroll through all these photos! I am excited to hear what you thought of them in the comments!

So sorry that this post is a couple days late! I was having trouble with our computer.
