The Barn Project

The Barn Project

We spent the weekend helping my parents fix up the old barn at the cattle lots on the ranch. This beauty is old but I love the character and the stories it could tell. The horse stalls at the other barn just aren't functional and quite a ways from where the arena will be. This area provides a lot more cover and will be handy to have everything in one spot. The north side is now opened up and three stalls were built, each with a run for the horses to get some sun and graze. Does anyone remember my old mason jar lights that hung in my store on main? Each stall will have a fixture. They are all LED and I might have changed two bulbs the entire 6 years they hung in my store. The pitch is super high so we won't have an issue with a horse touching them and they will give the stalls some fun character. I plan to stain all of the wood to give it a more rustic feel. We still have to run...

Tybee

Tybee

As promised, here are all the details of our 2021 family vacation. We decided to venture to Tybee Island, Georgia and it might be our favorite spot ever. We like to try new places but loved this area so much, it might just have to be our annual thing from here on out. I'll list all of the details below, links, etc. I'm also going to give a few tips and tricks to help make your trip run a bit more smoothly. I'm finally realizing these "hacks" make a vacation much more enjoyable for mom. I've found when we book ahead of time, it's not so overwhelming to plan and pay for a vacation. I booked this over a year ago and what I love about doing so is that I can put a deposit down and pay throughout the year. We have been trying to be more intentional with less stuff and more experiences, so this was a huge part of the girls birthdays and Christmases as well as our own. So worth it! You can...

A Move Towards Financial Freedom

A Move Towards Financial Freedom

I did a thing. But first, I’ll tee it up. ⁣⁣The choices I've made in my life and as a business owner haven't always gone as "planned". I’ve learned that I don’t mind approaching things in a non-traditional way. I felt the tension of what I was “supposed” to do; go to college, get a degree, a “grown-up” 9 to 5, get married, have kids, go through the motions of a cookie cutter "American Dream".⁣⁣So, I went to college but, I left in the middle of my Sophomore year to get married. We had a baby and then two years later I went to Nursing School. I decided that wasn't for me and was presented with a dream to open a store. So many of you have watched my journey with @farmgirlada + I can’t wait to tell you even more about our recent move. Let’s just say it’s it took me awhile to figure out what would actually be the best but— we made it! I shouldn’t be surprised a cattle ranch, in the middle...

Summer Bible Study

Summer Bible Study

I'm gearing up for our Summer Bible Study with my Branded With the Word group! I started this last June and enjoyed our time so much. Hopefully this season is a slower pace, in that giving you the opportunity to be more intentional to dive into the word. This group is just that and a way for us to connect as women and study, pray, and grow together. If you'd like to join, please comment below and I will get the link to you. We will be going through 7 weeks of Seamless by Angie Smith starting June 1st. Talk soon!

Farm Girl/Callison Ranch Market Grand Opening

Farm Girl/Callison Ranch Market Grand Opening

We had our grand opening a little over a month ago and it was such a sweet start to our new adventure. In true Oklahoma fashion, we ended up getting a 100% chance of rain. Despite the weather, people showed up for us and came out in droves. We are so blessed with the best support and we couldn't have had a better day! I'll try to keep this mainly photos for you all to enjoy but I just want to say, I'm so thankful and blessed to have my store here. I'm busier than I ever was on Main Street which is still so crazy to me. I also am blessed to get to work alongside these three precious women. They are such sweet blessings to me. I truly feel like we are all better together. We work well and work hard. We build each other up and it's nice to have company. I didn't realize how lonely I had been working by myself for so many years and I'm just grateful to be next to some God fearing cowgirls...

Cheryl

Cheryl

I held it together last night a lot better than I thought I would. But seeing her house packed before we ate our last meal at her kitchen table broke my heart. ⁣⁣This is Cheryl - she’s 30 years old than me + one of my best friends. She came into my life the day I opened Farm Girl in 2014 and has been a constant since. My biggest blessing God will probably ever give me through my store is Cheryl. She knows everything about me and loves me anyway, despite my flaws. She’s prayed me through the toughest times in my life. She’s rallied around Zack + I in our marriage and parenting. She’s weeped and celebrated with me.⁣⁣⁣ The last few years, we’d meet at a local coffee shop on Thursdays and she’d teach me how to study scripture. Like really dig deep, cross reference, understand the context, etc. Studying a book at a time, we’d dissect each verse. We’d talk about our week, everything going on...
