My husband and I have been at my Mom and Dad’s in New Mexico for the last week and one of the things I love so much when we come home to visit is my Momma’s amazing home-made Mexican food. I feel like I can hardly get enough of it! I told my Mom that since I would be working on this blog post while I’m at her house then she gets to choose what I’m going to write about. Lucky for all you readers she said, “How about you tell everyone how I make Red Chile Stacked Enchiladas”? I was excited because that meant I would get to eat them! So, here is a little tutorial of my special and amazing Momma making her famous red enchiladas.

What Our Flower Farm Means To Me

.

All summer I’ve been wanting to write a blog post about the flower farming business that my daughter and I have. Every time I think about it, this thought comes to my mind: “How would I describe why our flower business is so special to us”? And the words just evade me.

Farmgirl DIH {And A Giveaway!!}

.

Have you heard the acronym DIH instead of DIY?  I just recently found out that it means “do it herself”!  And I love that!  I’m very much a DIH kind of Farmgirl and that is probably because I was raised by a mother, who was also raised by a mother,  that wasn’t afraid to tackle anything.

Farmgirl Fencing {And A Million Other Farm Things}

This summer, three years after we finished building and moved into our home, my husband and I finally started the long and hot project of building the fence around our house.  This isn’t just a simple little fence, friends!  We’ve dreamed of one of those beautiful post and rail fences that you see all over Tennessee and Kentucky on the horse properties.  You know what I’m talking about right?

I Choose Happy!

I’m not one to dwell on negative things in the news or world events.    It’s not that I want to bury my head in the sand either, but I guess I just choose to dwell on positive things.  Things that warm my heart and make my days happier.

It’s “porching” weather friends!  

..

This is the farmhouse that my husband and I built about 3 years ago.  One of the things that we were looking for in a house plan was a house with a lot of porches.  We live on a hilltop with a view all the way around and we felt like (almost) wrap-around porches were really important.

Maybe you would like to come along on a porch tour!

My Daily Life In Pictures {and a winner!}

IMG_9815-003

.

As a writer, there are times when the words just aren’t there.  And sometimes when life has painful experiences and struggles, it is especially hard to find the words.  Because I am a “talker”, usually I’m never at a loss for words (and often regret the ones I do say) but today, with this blog post due, I feel like I have nothing to share.  No stories to tell. No funny experiences.  No project tutorials.  No recipes.  No words.

Welcome To My Kitchen {And A Winner!}

Sometimes as I ponder what I am going to share with you, my Farmgirl friends, I struggle with the words.  This is one of those times.  In my frustration, I walked over to the railing of my upstairs Barn Room to look out the big windows in the kitchen and living room below and I thought, “If only I could just invite all of you to visit me in my kitchen for a cup of coffee and a piece of pie I would know what to say”.  So here it is, Farmgirl friends.  Get your coffee and join me.  I’m going to share my kitchen; my favorite room in our Farmhouse.
