Welcome back!!

Well it has been a wild few weeks!!! There has been so much going on that I had to take a little break from the Blog, but I am back writing again and I'm so glad to "see" you!

The month of May was full of strawberries, Squash, zucchini and lots of kitchen work LOL! I have been canning Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Jalapeno Jam and Zucchini Relish. I made several jars of Strawberry Butter and Strawberry Freezer Jam and let's not forget all the yummy baked goods!!!!

The strawberries for us are done, BUT blueberry season is ALMOST HERE!!!!! We know for sure we will be picking to us in our kitchen for the jams, butters, baked goods and more. What we don't know just yet is if we will be able to offer just the berries to sell, so be sure to watch for updates for sure!!!! WE LOVE blueberry time!!!

We have a new adventure at our house! We have a what some call a "She Shed" but I call it a Guest Room :)

I LOVE interior design and decorating SO this is right up my alley!!!! I am so excited to get inside and start finishing the inside! Martin has been busy running electricity to the building and putting in outlets for me! I have our newest video uploaded on our YouTube channel! Just click the button to go and see!
