It’s Our Anniversary!!! (And BIG News!)

From Scratch Farm is almost four years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we're moving to Main Street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!       Talk about being in the right place at the right time.  After about a month of starting to look at new properties, I happened to mention our search to just the perfect person.  So we told our realtor this was a property we needed to see. We walked in.  Other than losing a…

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 Ben brought home information for this WorldStrides trip.  Of course, I was surprised by the…

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 posts about the benefits of essential oils.  After lots of research, I quickly made the…

TRAVEL TEXAS (Son’s Island)

I had fallen in love with the place just through photos on instagram.  So I couldn't wait to go.  Made reservations for Mother's Day, invited my parents, and planned the weekend.   The island is a 3.5 acre island in the middle of Lake Placid in Seguin.  An easy-access spot right off of I-10, you get to the island by driving over a one-lane wooden bridge, check into your reservation,…

GUEST POST! By JoAnn Schroeder

Did you know that May 1st was National Chocolate Parfait Day?!  Just found that out, as I was getting ready to post this week's guest blog post!  But this is no ordinary chocolate parfait recipe that I'm about to share.  Why, you ask?  Because it was submitted by our very own children's dental office!  ;) We've been going to Little Smiles Dentistry for years, and have know JoAnn for  a…

Chicken Fun Show

Ben was out of town.  But Evan and I were able to attend our 4-H poultry club's Chicken Fun Show. And Evan walked away with a Champion ribbon and trophy!  First Place eggs, y'all!  But let me explain... His plate of three white eggs that were judged on looks didn't place at all.  His plate of three brown eggs that were also judged on looks did poorly. But! Our blue…

GUEST POST! By Courtney Mosier

I'm excited to go live with our next guest blog post!  And one by someone I love following on instagram! The funny thing is, she's not a business.  She doesn't teach me how to be a better entrepreneur, expose me to new recipes, keep me up to date with what's happening around Boerne, or let me peak into the world of fashion and travel (which is pretty much all I…

GUEST POST! By Sarah Keeling

I'm so excited to have our first guest blog post!  And one by someone I SO admire! We've been following each other's accounts on instagram for a while, have participated in the same Boerne Handmade Market, even tried to pull off a Small Business Saturday event together.  But this is the first time we've really worked closely.  When I made the call for models, Sarah gladly volunteered.  She chose to…
