We are busy, busy here at Briarmoore and this week has been filled with lots of cuteness. Two of our rabbit does had litters this week. All the kits seem to be healthy and happy. This is encouraging as our last round did not fare as well. All of us are enjoying this new endeavor. … Read the Rest

Peach Cream Tart


As we are in the midst of egg season, I am constantly trying to think up new ways to use the cracks (the eggs with a cracked shell but an intact membrane).  Breakfasts often consist of scrambled or poached eggs, or my favorite- baked oatmeal.  We almost always have a handful of hard-boiled eggs in … Read the Rest

Happy Father’s Day!


Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing man, best friend, and father I know…my husband John. Our children and I are blessed to have him in our lives, leading our family on this journey. He lives thoughtfully and purposefully with God at the forefront of everything. We are certainly not where I thought we would be seventeen years ago…and I would … Read the Rest

With every transition, be it a new job, a new baby or otherwise, we have to manage our expectations.  When our first daughter was born Caleb and I had to work through what we subconsciously and/or consciously expected of one another and of ourselves.  Who was going to change the diapers?  Who was going to … Read the Rest

But the Bible says,”This is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24) And … Read the Rest

We Remember


Today we remember those who have served our nation and laid down their lives for our own.  Your sacrifice is not forgotten.  And to those who continue to serve and put yourselves in harm’s way, we pray a covering over your life. This is a photo of some of the men who served alongside my … Read the Rest


Calving Season

Version 2

Spring is calving season for us and it seems just about every day we stumble upon a cow licking the afterbirth from her new baby or supervising cautious first steps. The scene never gets old and we have had over thirty calves born at Briarmoore this year. John has become quite skilled at tagging the … Read the Rest

Smitten with Sweaters


Winter hasn’t quite released us from her icy grip. Frequent freeze warnings and chilly mornings where our breath still hangs in front of us in the air keep us from packing away the few hats and coats remaining in our closets. Perhaps that is why I have been so taken with knitting sweaters lately. I … Read the Rest
