Horses?

Horses?

I heard laughing in my assistant’s office today.  “She is bringing her horses?”  Then I heard more laughing.  Turns out it was horse trailers, not actual horses, but nonetheless we all had a good laugh for how ill-equipped we are to handle livestock,...

How many dogs are enough?

How many dogs are enough?

It was before the next grueling workout at Orange Theory in Huntsville, Alabama, and I was talking about my farm.  I don’t remember who I was talking to, but that morning changed my life forever.  A woman sidles up next to me and says, “You’ve got a farm?  Do you...

Everything and Everybody – Second chances

Everything and Everybody – Second chances

It’s my favorite place to shop these days, the Salvation Army Thrift Store. The store is packed with donated furniture and cast-off bric-a-brac of all kinds.  Recently I scored an artist’s easel and a pair of seventies platform heels for a theme party.  You...

Lucky Learning

Lucky Learning

Things I've learned from Lucky… No matter how dirty your water is today, tomorrow and a fresh pool can excite and thrill you beyond belief. If bad things happen, just let them roll off your back. If predators get too close, just honk at them and get out of the way....

The Mosaic Creative – A vision becoming reality

The Mosaic Creative – A vision becoming reality

The vision began when Leigh Daniel heard from a friend about a little parcel of farmland in New Market, AL. You should definitely read more about that in her July 2019 blog post How to Manifest Your Dream.  After a real estate auction to secure it, the dream of Leigh...

You’ve got termites

You’ve got termites

What? More bad news? I remember when I was a kid, my cousins had a termite infestation, and I saw swarms of them in their living room wall. Yikes! Now I have them at what is soon to be the library and reading room. I waited for the suggestion, “You need to buy a new...

How to manifest YOUR dream

How to manifest YOUR dream

A case study - Leigh Acres Think about what you want with clarity. It was common knowledge I needed a farm. The animals were taking over my small historic mill house. If I wanted to keep adding to my menagerie, I had to get out of the city limits and get myself some...

FINDING PURPOSE

Giving back to the world can create a sense of purpose that many of us are lacking. Working together to provide for others and giving them second chances is more than just writing a check at Christmas. It’s taking on the challenge of creating a space where people are treated equally and are working together to transform lives.
