We finely have chickens and I love them! We have four and we named them after
Jane Austen characters. There names are Mrs. Jennings, Fanny, Harriet and
Henrietta. Aren't they cute?

As the rain drops hit her hand she felt as if
every thing was at peace as the world bloomed around her.

this church has been around for over 100 years!
I love old churches, well i love just about anything old, or old fashioned.
I am convinced I was born in the wrong century!

Down in valley,
valley so low
Hang your head over,
hear the wind blow.
Hear the wind blow, love,
hear the wind blow;
Hang your head over,
hear the wing blow.

From the book Christy by. Catherine Marshall

Its snowing, oh how I adore the snow. Its been snowing all day and
that's weird for where we live. We hardly get any snow

my dad found this little heart shaped rock and he gave it to my mother.
he said he was thinking of her and looked down and there it was.
I think that's almost swoon worthy romantic.
how about you?

"did you not here my lady...go down the garden singing
blackbird and thrush were silent to hear the alleys ringing
oh saw you not my lady out in the garden there."
-from the movie Emma

I simply cant wait till spring.
I'm dying to start planting the garden.

Hi I'm Sarah, I'm homeschooled, I live in the Appalachian mountains with my family and all of our animals which includes 4 dogs, 3 cats and soon 3 chickens. I enjoy sewing and reading. This summer we are planting our first garden, I think I'm in charge of the onions and strawberries. Weird mix, huh! These are the things you will see here. I hope you'll enjoy reading about it and everything in between.
