I can’t believe it’s already September. I haven’t been on the blog these past couple of weeks because I’ve been working on the backend of my blog. Lots of technical things that I still don’t quite understand but hoping it’s making a difference in the load speed. Everyday for the last couple months I’ve gotten attempts of hackers trying to hack into my site so I’ve also worked in adding extra protection to my site and cleaning out any malware. Plus this site will soon be getting a makeover, which I am so excited to finally get done. So while that has been happening a lot has also happened in our life including Jayden starting first grade! It’s crazy to think that it’s a new school year. With a new school year we’ve also have some updates on current projects I’m working on plus house building updates. So read more below if you want to know what we’ve been up to lately in this August life update.
Today marks our 7th anniversary. If any song describes this year it would be the new song “Buy Dirt” by Jordan Davis. My friend introduced this song to me on our recent girl’s trip and she said it reminded her of me and Josh. If you listen to this song then you will understand why. This year we bought our dream farm and we are so excited for what the future holds. We can’t wait to raise our family there.
Hope you are having a great week! Summer is here and Spring baseball season is officially over for the little guy. Watching him play for the past three years has honestly been awe inspiring to see him develop his skills and love for the sport. I still remember the day when he started walking and would carry a bat around with him like Bam Bam in the Flintstones. Jayden has always loved baseball from his very first game at three months old to now playing in little league. I never thought I would be a baseball mom, but here I am cheering my little guy on and I love it. Today I wanted to share some photos I took of his season and my thoughts about being a baseball mom below!
Hope you are having a great week! Father’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share some gift ideas from Dick’s Sporting Goods for the Outdoorsy Dad. Josh loves to go fishing, golfing, camping, and anything that involves getting outdoors. So this Father’s Day I thought I would get him some things he could use for his next fishing or camping trip. Check it out below.
Hope you had a great weekend! Thank ya’ll so much for the love on our last post! We are so beyond excited to finally be making one of our big dream come true. We can’t wait to share more of the building process with you. In other news we unexpectedly sold our house! You are probably thinking how does that happen. Well you aren’t going to believe it, but it was as if God was giving us the green light to pursue our dream. Read more of how we said goodbye to our first home below!
I am so excited to finally share our big news with ya’ll! We bought a farm! There’s nothing on it yet, but trees and fields of grass, but it’s where our future home and the Darnell Family Farm will be built on. It was so crazy how we came about this property but everything points to God’s timing and when it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m sharing more of our story and what the future holds for our family below!
I can’t believe its 2021 already. 2020 was definitely a crazy year but not without some amazing memories. 2020 showed us what was important in our life and that was being home with our family. We still were able to travel, including being able to take our extended family on family trips which honesty was so nice. Our family went to Belize, stayed at a dude ranch in Arizona for the first time, and went to our yearly family trips to Florida and Colorado. We also were able to cross off some big goals in our life, including hubs becoming a Captain. Even with the pandemic we were able to ride out this crazy time and come out stronger than ever as a family. We owe it all to God and we are so thankful for the blessings we have received. Today I wanted to share our New Year 2021 family photos we took and our New Years wishes with you.
Merry Christmas from our crazy family to yours! It’s been a crazy busy time with family, but I just wanted to hop on here to wish ya’ll a Merry Christmas. We took these pictures before we left from Colorado and I absolutely love how they turned out. Unfortunately they didn’t quite make it on time for Christmas cards, but I still wanted to share, because the outtakes of Jayden is pretty hilarious. And those are my favorite photos because it shows his goofy personality. Check out the full shoot below.
Hope you are doing well! We just got back from our family trip in Colorado and had the best time getting away and spending time in the mountains at Josh’s Uncle’s family ranch. It was truly magical, and we got to play in the snow. But we are back in time to celebrate Josh’s 33rd birthday! So today I am sharing this fun holiday shoot we did with this gorgeous green velvet dress and of course a little dedication the the special birthday boy.
Hope you are having a great week! Today I am sharing with you our Christmas message on our Christmas Card. I wanted to share our Christmas message to hopefully inspire people who are struggling this year to have faith and trust in God’s plan. I know it may be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel but 2021 is just around the corner and I truly believe there are better times ahead. We have been very fortunate this year and count our blessings that we have our family, a roof over our heads, and the ability to be able to continue doing the things we love like sharing this blog with y’all. This year more than ever has shown us to appreciate the little things. So thank you for those who continue to follow along and I hope this message below inspires you. Continue reading
