Launch day is finally here! Welcome to my new blog. This space has been a labor of love for the last 8 months and I’m so excited to get back to writing and sharing.
After 10 years of blogging, I decided to give this space a facelift with the help of my sweet friend Talia and start from scratch. Most of my ramblings over the last decade have been geared more towards family updates and a way for me to get my thoughts out as journal entries for my kids to read one day. Albeit I will still be doing that, but this space will now serve a few other purposes and as a creative outlet for me. You’ll also find more recipes with Hayfield Meals , Home Design projects, faith, favorite things, happenings on the Rafter PS and more! I have so much planned for my little corner of the web and can’t wait to start sharing with you all. For the full effect, viewing on a computer is best!!!!
Every single detail on this design was personalized to me. The main logo is a redraw from a photo of me below. The rope, and horseshoe details to symbolize my hobbies. The Indian paintbrushes throughout as my favorite flower and a personal family sentiment. Our brand, my about story, love for music, rose the longhorn, a quote from one of my favorite books, etc. Everything was carefully planned and thought out.
The rural lifestyle is in my bones and I am grateful we get to raise our kids this way. I’m thankful I get to live out the rest of my days, still on the back of a horse, in a paintbrush covered field of cattle. What a blessing. I cannot wait to document this trail ride of life on my small corner of the web. I hope you enjoy this space as much as I do and hope it serves as a place where you can find unique things, laughter, encouragement, tips, and to use as a resource.
