    Closing Down The Summer

    Pendleton Family Farm August 18, 2022

    Closing down the summer here at our new property. It’s been a wild 5 months since the last update on the blog. The move, the adjustments, the plans. Here’s what’s been going down.  We’re all adjusting well and the kids couldn’t be happier. Why did we move? You can read all about that here. We moved from 60 acres down to 1.23 and the funny thing is…I’m more satisfied now…

    December Updates On The Farm

    Pendleton Family Farm January 6, 2022

    December updates on the farm. I had realized this week that I haven’t wrote any monthly updates since September. Whoops! Life has a way of just happening and the past few months have been nothing short of crazy town.  *Please note this blog post contains affiliate links.

    New Years On The Farm

    Pendleton Family Farm January 4, 2022

    New Years on the farm. What a time to be alive. The new year brings about so many things for so many people. Most of us have goals we want to accomplish the coming year and dreams we’re striving for. Our family is no different, but our focus this year is grass and garden.  We spent our New Year’s Day walking around the 60 acres we are blessed to be…

    Thursday Ramblings

    Pendleton Family Farm December 9, 2021

    I had a hard mental day the other day. I just did. There was no fighting it, I just had to feel it and feel it all. Rose colored glasses we put on a lot of times hinder our vision to see the truth and the truth is exactly what we need at that moment. Eyes to see, emotions to feel, and then we can gain perspective and put our…

    Letting Go Of Perfection

    Pendleton Family Farm October 20, 2021

    Letting go of perfection. I had an hour long FaceTime conversation with a friend yesterday. It was glorious, uninterrupted, and just what my heart needed. Even though we now live 3 hours away from each other, we didn’t skip a beat. It had been a while since we had last talked and we spoke all about what had been going on in our lives and the lives of the ones…

    The 4 Gift Rule

    Pendleton Family Farm October 12, 2021

    As a single mom for 7 years, Christmas was spent over indulging my two children in a ridiculous way. The bottom of the tree was filled to the brim and most times spilled out across the entire living room. The 4 gift rule came into play a few years ago.  *Please note this blog post contains affiliate links. If a purchase is made through one of my links, I earn…

  • Why Our Family Uses Essential Oils

    Why Our Family Uses Essential Oils

    Pendleton Family Farm September 16, 2021

    Our family has been an avid essential oil user since 2013 when I joined Young Living. Just like most families, we wanted a different way to treat, heal, and live without always grabbing conventional treatments of medications, cleaners, and personal care products. I had always loved holistic approaches to life, but it wasn’t until I graduated for nursing school, that my passion came full force.  *Please note this blog post…

    On A Monday

    Pendleton Family Farm August 23, 2021

    I’m writing…on a Monday. That can only mean one thing…kids are back in school. This post will be a lot different than our regular scheduled programing of farm chores, livestock, and garden updates. It’s going to be me. It’s going to be what I wrote about for years…parenting.  I CAN BREATHE New little clean back to school clothes on that they have picked out, their hair “just right,” lunches packed…

    July Updates On The Farm

    Pendleton Family Farm July 23, 2021

    I know I say this every time we do a farm update, but it’s been busy lol. The gardens, the livestock, the home…all of it. July updates on the farm.  CONSISTENT EGGS The kids and I took a quick trip to Pigeon Forge (more on that later) and when we got back home…the egg situation was insane. Five days of eggs on this farm is no joke and most of…
