Mother’s Day 2022

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and it was wonderful! I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, as well.

My day started out with tea in the garden with my oldest daughter, Piper. She also cherishes simple, peaceful moments as I do. She is a bit of an old soul in this way and I love it. These moments out in the garden together as the sun rises are some very special moments between us. We often talk about God and anything else Piper might have questions about.

After eating breakfast, we all went to church. Then, we grabbed footlong hot dogs from an ice cream stand for lunch. Nick (re)filled our 4x4 garden bed in the afternoon while I did a couple loads of laundry. Then, we all went to Piper’s friend’s birthday party at the tumble gym. The girls had a blast!

My Mother’s Day ended the same way it began - with tea in the garden. I ended the day praising God for the blessing of being the mother to my two beautiful daughters. 

What a gift it is to be a mother!

Gracefully Grown

I've been working on some fun projects, lately! I have a lot going on with my garden planning and prepping. I have been trying to document the process along the way. I created a separate space for sharing all about my homesteading adventures. I am still trying to figure out if I want to compartmentalize in that way or combine it all with this space. For now, I'm keeping it separate. 

If you are interested in homesteading, gardening, canning, etc. you can go follow me over at @gracefully.grown on Instagram. I also wanted to share a little video I made showing how we built our raised bed garden.

If this is something you enjoy, please let me know! Learning about homesteading has been so fun for me lately. It's something I really enjoy doing!
