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 »

You Do It Suet

Not that I ever poured grease/fat down our drains!  But, I can’t tell you how much more I love making homemade seed cakes, rather than dealing with the hassle of containing and throwing away the leftovers! I discovered You Do It Suet several months ago, as they started following us on instagram.  I quickly took… Read more »

The Free Hugs Project

I wish today was a normal day.  I wish there was nothing special about it.  But…. Instead, it’s a day that most of us will remember forever.  It’s a day that most of us will reflect on what we were doing on this very day 15 years ago. All of our stories matter.  But I… Read more »

Kendall County Fair!!!

Sadly, we didn’t have any chickens to enter into the fair this year.  But we didn’t walk away without ribbons!   I decided to enter the baking competition again. My mint chocolate cookies are some of my favorites.  Love them still, even though they didn’t win.   My pumpkin muffins recipe is delicious.  But I… Read more »

Back to School!

First week of school is done!  A couple bumps in the road… and I need a nap.  But overall, it was a success. The middle schooler loves his classes and has a bunch of his friends with him throughout the day.  The little loves his elementary school’s new building and his classroom.  And we’re all… Read more »


It’s time to make it a habit.  It’s time for it to be on my calendar.  Maybe I need a perfect spot and someone to keep me accountable? My first thought is that Friday mornings are great for me.  And I’m wondering if a coffee shop, bakery, or library may be good places to park… Read more »

It’s Our Anniversary!!!

It’s From Scratch Farm’s 3-year anniversary!!! And I’m going to give you a peek into the business… and a great deal!   First, I’m Amy.  I’m 41, the mom of two awesome boys.  I’m also a children’s portrait photographer.  I’ve been single for the past year.  I love to cook and bake.  Love animals and… Read more »

The Love Letter Library Part 2

Do you remember what you were doing last weekend? I was due to write a new blog post Saturday.  But after watching a little too much footage of the Dallas shootings from Friday and reading too many heated facebook posts and comments, I threw my hands up.  I knew I was going to spend most… Read more »

The Love Letter Library

Love is her jam! I discovered The Love Letter Library’s instagram account at this time last year.  It was in the midst of my separation and my move.  My life was changing; my sons’ worlds were rocked.  It came at the perfect time to lift my spirits, see that beautiful things were happening around me,… Read more »
