Friendships are something to be valued. ♥️⠀ ⠀ The older we get the harder it seems to find true friendship. ⠀ Acquaintances abound. ⠀ Deep friendships are few. ⠀ ⠀ One of my goals this year is to invest in my friendships in a real & authentic way. ⠀ For me friendships are about quality, not necessarily quantity. ⠀ ⠀ I’m so thankful for the amazing ladies the Lord has put in my life. I don’t know what I would do without them. ⠀ ⠀ We may not talk everyday, but when we do it’s full of life, love, & conversations that fill my cup. ♥️⠀ ⠀

Naked. Lobster. Roll. ⠀ FREAKING. AMAZING.⠀ It's all about balance, y'all. ⠀ ⠀ I hate mayo....like I can't even tolerate the smell of it. ⠀ So naturally I've avoided Lobster Rolls like the plague on all my trips to New England...you know like all 30-something of them. ⠀ ⠀ On our visit to #portlandmaine we stopped at this lobster roll joint that man of the locals said served the best "naked roll"---no mayo, just tossed in butter. ⠀ ⠀ Y'all. I have been dreaming of that Lobster Roll ever since April. ⠀ It was amazing.⠀ ⠀ Jonathan kicked off his Father's Day Weekend by cooking us some Naked Lobster Rolls. ⠀ ⠀ Oh. My. Goodness they were SO GOOD. ⠀ Worth every gram of fat & carb!⠀ ⠀ Speaking of...knowing I would be indulging tonight on Lobster Rolls, I saved all of my fats & carbs for dinner.⠀ ⠀ Did I still probably go over on my daily allotment of each?⠀ YEP. ⠀ Am I going to feel guilty & punish myself with extra workouts tomorrow?⠀ NOPE.⠀ ⠀ It's all about balance.⠀ I'm not perfect and I will inevitably get a hankering for something that's not on my nutrition plan. ⠀ And that's okay, as long as I don't make a habit of it.

Priorities & Value. ⠀ ⠀ You can't decide on your priorities without knowing what you value. ⠀ Our priorities flow from our values. ⠀ ⠀ When looking ahead at the life I want to live it's impossible for me to envision a single day where my values aren't there to guide me. ⠀ ⠀ In a world where we have hundreds of opinions, views, & propaganda thrown at us on a daily basis, our personal core values & beliefs will be the foundation on which we stand. ⠀ ⠀ My values describe who I am and guides me when I'm faced with any type of situation that comes my way. ⠀ ⠀ What are yours?⠀ Do you have life values that you live by?⠀ Are your daily, monthly, & yearly priorities an outflow from your values? 📸: @staceyforetichphotography

What brings you happiness?⠀ ⠀ I believe happiness comes from things in my life & true joy comes from the Lord.⠀ ⠀ Many things bring me happiness....or so I thought. ⠀ I used to be so enthralled with material things that would make me happy for a little while until the excitement wore off. ⠀ ⠀ The older I get the less desire I have for material things. ⠀ Sure, I still like getting things, and occasionally I'll get my heart set on something that I "just have to have" but my happiness isn't dependant on it. ⠀ ⠀ I'm learning that my happiness is up to me. ⠀ It took me a while to figure out where the purest form of happiness comes from.⠀ ⠀ For me, true happiness comes from within. ⠀ ⠀ I now find happiness through ⠀ my relationship with my husband⠀ my Motherhood.⠀ My friendships.⠀ My health & fitness ⠀ ⠀ Each of these things brings me happiness because they fill my cup. ⠀ I am happiest when I am caring for myself and those around me. ⠀ ⠀ I may not be the perfect wife, perfect mother, perfect friend, & I still haven't reached my health and fitness goals yet, but knowing that each day I take steps to be better & reach those goals gives me confidence in myself and allows for happiness to breathe life. ⠀ ⠀ The girl in this picture is confident & happy. Not because she is perfect or has reached all of her goals, but because she is doing her best in all areas of her life. ⠀ She is trying to be a better person today than she was yesterday. ❤️

One of the biggest harvests this year! We are drowning in strawberries, redcurrants and rhubard and I do not complain! First jam of the season will feature all three of them. I cannot wait to try it.

#Grounding. Sounds like magic & fantasy, but it's real. Physically connecting to the Earth IS beneficial in SO many ways. There is a transfer of ions that our bodies NEED among other things. Take a few minutes today to take the shoes & socks off and walk around, outside. You'll be better for having done so. . . #homestead #homesteadhomies #ProvenanceAndRoots #garden #seeds #chickens #rooster #hens #bantam #isabrown #australorp #eggs #growyourfood #growyourmedicine #countryliving #naturalliving #OhioHomestead #MorrowCounty #MorrowCountyOhio #GileadTownship

The girl cashier at the grocery store loved my #bags today! She couldn't believe how much could fit in them and how #strong they were. They hold sooo much! They line up great in back seat I don't have to worry about everything spilling out and rolling all over the truck! Carrying them in is so much easier also we don't have 10 bags up to our elbows and the trips back to the car are alot less. They are also better then fabric because fabric rips pretty easy also. These are all #recycled #feed bags!! Anyway, I took some pictures just because Inlove them so much :) #feedbags #farmersmarkettotoe #totes #totebag #livestockfeedbags #etsy #etsyseller #rabbits #chickens #horses #country #countrylife #farmersmarket #grocerystore #farmlife #farmanimals #barnyardanimals #dogs #cats #homesteadersoftennessee #HomesteadersOfIGandFB #HomesteadersOfInstagram #homesteadhomies #homesteadingwiththerhudes

Today will be the day you will look around and see progress. You will understand your value and completely give yourself a better chance of being happy. Have you wondered what a day without stress looks like? That chicken plucker we got works better than expected. Have a great day and never waste it. #offgrid #chickens #chickenplucker #what #smile #beard #havefun #getoutsidemore #smile #ptsd #homesteadinglife #homesteading #offgridliving #homesteadhomies #offgridlife #outside #happy #embrace #grounded #dorothy #gingerbeard #harvesters #oakleysunglasses #amazoninfluencer #yardbird #videooftheday #videooftheweek

The other week when we placed tires to be a foundation for a Shipping container @factotum_farms . It brought back such fond memories for me of the time I spent in Taos at Earthship and after that in Truckee with some tire pounding friends. Let's pound some more tires people. ---- This is a first for Jim and Mark here. After a few rounds everyone gets faster and we really start having fun. #naturalbuildingworks #tirewall @greendreamproject

What are you doing today? We have to get some pond liner clay as well as see if we can get some materials to keep this going. Each day we do two things to the property to get it one step closer to being completed. It is not a race but it will be nice to sit back and know it is all done. #offgrid #diyprojects #homesteadhomies #outdoorfun #smile #enjoy #havefun #workhard #smileharder #dumor #reclaimed #oldschoolwoodworking #ptsdawareness #homesteadinglife #offgridliving #offgridhomestead #oldschool #interiordesign #design #playingaround #farmstead #happy #throwback 🔙 #awesome #bepositive
