How did 2014 fly by so fast?
Just a reflection back on the last 12 months.
We started off moving to a new house in January.
A move that was a surprise to both of us!
Moving day was brutal!
Below zero temps and even worse wind chills.
We had to wait for the snow plows to clear the road to the new house.
A day after we moved in the pipeliner got a call for a job in
And off we went!
While there I got to visit the Statue of Liberty.
If you remember last winter,
it was a long cold one!
When spring finally arrived
we got busy working around the new place.
My first garden turned out better then expected!
It kept me in supply of beautiful flowers all summer long!
We added a few buildings to the landscape.
The garden shed.
The chicken coop.
The pipeliners shed.
We also did a few get-aways.
Another trip to the Statue of Liberty
A birthday trip to Chicago to watch our favorite team!
Whats a little rain?
Stopped to see the pickers.
(they weren't home)
We harvested our first honey.
Sadly we said goodbye to our little farmhouse.
And in the same month said goodbye to our
beloved beagle Molly.
There was still a lot of happy moments spent with
Our first time seeing a hockey game.
This die-hard Packers fan even went with him to a
Bears Monday night game.
(love the guy who photo bombed us)
We didn't spend any time in our pipeline house the past year.
Gotta feeling that will change this year!
In November we added onto the farm.
We purchased the 5 acres next to us.
Maybe some steers in the future?
But the best thing about 2014 was spending
most days hanging out with my
silly, little, buddy!
Grandma and grandpa sure love this guy!
What a crazy, busy year we had!
But a very blessed one that's for sure!
I am not sure what 2015 will bring this family.
But if it is anything thing like last year,
it will be filled with lots of hard work,
laughter and love!
I am ready to enjoy every minute of it!
