Camp Drunken Arrow

Last year I was a sponsor.  But this year I got to be a sponsor AND a camper! So…. My adventure began a few weeks ago, when I had to start sterilizing jars and taking inventory of my ingredients.  Having everything ready, I got to work making dozens of fresh lip balms, healing salves, body… Read more »

The Kendall County Fair

Another fair in the books!  More fun had, more memories made, more accomplishments, more prize ribbons! The weekend started with me sneaking over to the fairgrounds to check the big chunk of our entries.  It was a great kickstart to the fun! I did well.  My chocolate muffins won third place.  My pineapple cake won… Read more »

TRAVEL TEXAS- South Padre Island

We did it again!  Our annual beach trip to South Padre! Lots of sand, sun, and sea.  Froyo every day.  A fun outing.  Lots of great food.  And not a single lick of sunburn. How do I do it?  Careful planning, budgeting, packing, routine, and sunscreen!     Where do we stay? Every year, it’s Seabreeze… Read more »

TRAVEL TEXAS- Hamilton Pool

It has been over two years since I heard about (and have started dreaming about) Hamilton Pool.  Nestled into our beautiful Texas hill country, it seemed like such an incredible little oasis.  But I let that first summer slip by.  Disappointed but curious, I went ahead and just planned on a day of hiking and… Read more »

An Interview with Leigh Country

GUEST POST! By Summer Poole

I am so excited to go live with our next guest blog post!   By a fellow mom and businesswoman… and a friend! I can’t recall exactly when we first met.  But I do remember the first time we worked together.  Knowing that I had a booth at the Outdoor Family Fair, and not having a… Read more »

Our Magical History Tour!

I’ll start with the fact that the trip still had me programmed to get up super early yesterday.  But I quickly went back to bed for a two-hour nap.  And today I slept until 9:00, laid in bed watching TV until 1:00.  Hoping I’m now recovered… But the story begins over a year ago, when… Read more »

There’s An Oil For That!!!

Is there really, you may ask?  I think so!  At least, for our day-to-day needs!   I’ll start with how I discovered essential oils.  It was during my “googling” several years ago, to learn more about raising chickens, collecting rainwater, and making homemade body products.  Along with many articles I found, I was also finding… Read more »

Camp Well

So, there was an inspirational and uplifting four-day camp in Fredericksburg last month.  And our body scrubs and healing salves attended!  😉     Camp Well is described as: “Camp Well will be four days of the perfect balance of workshops, breakout sessions, one on one mentor sessions, an outdoor experiences that will be the… Read more »
