blessed

We are immensely blessed and it is never more evident than at Christmastime.

another day, another farm

The Middle Tennessee/Kentucky region has this whole fall pumpkin patch thing down. We were invited to visit a new one tonight with our dear friends. It was a blast with live bluegrass music, animals and a bonfire. We also did a nighttime hay ride and picked pumpkins by lantern light. We finished the night off with some warm apple cider. Yum!

back at the farm

We made our yearly pilgrimage to Christian Way Farm again. We just love this place. Austin was elated to discover a train made of mow-mows. It was like a dream for him.

Very serious mow-mowing!

It was our CC community's field trip so the girls had all their friends.

He was SO TIRED. I looked back and he had just decided to take a break in the middle of the road.

A minimalist single column blog

Isn’t it refreshing? One, single, lonely column of beautiful content without the distraction of a sidebar. The blog sidebar has many faithful followers, however we are not one of them (sorry). The demise of the sidebar has resulted in some great new design possibilities and we’re jumping in feet first. Starting with this purposely minimalist blog design. We’re not lazy, we swear, we just love big, huge photos smack in the middle of a white page. Don’t you? Especially when it’s your lovely work and thoughtfully crafted words locking eyes with readers.
Now, we’re not bloggers (not lately anyway), so we won’t go on and on about our love for a great single column blog. Instead we’ll simply add in some dummy text to help you visualize and move on to the next item on our to-do list. How about another photo for good measure as well?

DESIGN IS A FUNNY WORD. SOME PEOPLE THINK DESIGN MEANS HOW IT LOOKS. BUT OF COURSE, IF YOU DIG DEEPER, IT’S REALLY HOW IT WORKS.

Optional Blog Sidebar Layout

Sometimes you just want to mix it up, and now with our optional sidebar layout you can do just that. Choose to add a sidebar to the entire blog, or just to specific posts – the choice is really up to you! A fully widgetized sidebar is the perfect place for a signup form, some social media links, archives, search bar and more. Choice is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?

Styled headings for structure

Have you ever encountered those never ending blog posts that have no headings and no photos and you find yourself getting a bit lost/bored? There are some incredible writers out there that don’t need all that fluff, but let’s be honest, more often than not a great blog post could use a little structure to organize its greatness. So here are some sample headings to let you know that we didn’t forgot about them. Quite the contrary actually, we’re big fans

Here’s a sample heading

Sed sodales erat at quam mollis, nec maximus massa scelerisque. Maecenas sapien nisl, tempus vitae elit a, aliquet varius sapien. Donec egestas auctor euismod. Nam rutrum facilisis rhoncus. Aenean id eros mattis, maximus felis eu, auctor lectus. Mauris quis nisi ut lorem viverra varius tempor eget odio. Fusce ultricies mauris ut lectus gravida imperdiet.

And yet another sample heading

Sed mauris nisl, scelerisque quis ex ac, hendrerit pellentesque urna. Suspendisse suscipit efficitur elit et commodo. Praesent hendrerit, ipsum vel dictum pretium, nunc quam efficitur eros, eu facilisis lacus mi faucibus turpis. Pellentesque orci leo, mattis vitae leo in, euismod feugiat augue. Duis augue risus, porttitor quis nunc in, semper malesuada tellus.

Last one, we promise

Nam dapibus quis tortor vitae blandit. Quisque a enim id diam elementum sodales. In pharetra at orci sit amet iaculis. Suspendisse porta tellus a tellus maximus, non pulvinar ipsum eleifend. Donec id velit placerat, sodales ligula eu, volutpat metus. Donec ut ex velit. Cras congue metus in fermentum posuere.
