Five Minute Friday-What’s in Your Message?

Published on June 13, 2014, by in Living Completely.

Five Minute Friday is a weekly writing challenge/link-up hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker, author of Surprised by Motherhood. Each week, bloggers/writers are given a one word writing prompt. A timer is set for 5 minutes and writing commences, influenced by the one word. I have not participated in quite a while, but this weeks word spoke to me: Messenger. What’s in your message? A messenger is, of course, a person that brings forth a message. What’s in your message? Whether it is their own or someone elses, a messenger has something to say and/or deliver. What is *my* message? What is it

Renovated Vintage Trailers and Sisters on the Fly

Yesterday I shared a bit about from our trip to the Country Living Fair. Today I wanted to share what we saw as we were leaving the fair: Renovated vintage trailers towed to the fairgrounds by a few lovely members of Sisters on the Fly. If you are not familiar with this group, I urge you to check out their site.

Barns and Outbuildings In Spring

Barns and outbuildings. Whether spring, winter or any other season, their statuesque stance on the landscape stands anywhere from proud and tall, to “HELP, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”. What comes to mind when you see them? These barns and outbuildings that protect new life in the spring and protect all life in the winter. Simplicity of life, respect for the hard working farmers, remembrance of a lifestyle that, sadly, seems distant and untouchable to many people. When I drive around the area in which I live {Wayne County, PA}, there are moments when I cannot HELP but

Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY

The Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY took place the weekend of June 6-8, 2014. Once again, creative vendors from all of the USA {the world???} descended upon this small town bringing with them beautiful examples of objet d’art as well as craft/art supplies, delicious foods, and fantastic photo opps! The Country Living Fair was like a real life, touch as you go Pinterest extravaganza! Rhinebeck, NY will never be the same again! Not only is the fair amazing, but the drive is so pleasing to the eye. The trip over the Hudson River and the mountains was simply breathtaking!

When Love is Scary

When love is scary, it is intense. It has the potential to change an otherwise rational person into an all-consuming, neurotic fruitcake…{think stalker…but that’s not *real* love, of course :)}. When love is scary, it can be a little freaky. For years, I could not put a finger on the intense feeling that  would crop up at the oddest times in my marriage. “Scary” just sounds odd when referring to the person you are married to. Remarkably joyous moments were/are combined with this “YIKES” feeling. Not exactly “fear”…just scary. Asking questions like “Is this for real?” or “Wow…can you really love someone
