Raising Our Kids In A Different Time

Just a quick photo to share with you today.  A little reminder to slow down and take things slow… to enjoy the things that we enjoyed as children, especially with our own kids.  In the age of driving in the fast lane and technology based communication it is nice to think about a different, simpler time . I snapped this picture of my little girl one beautiful summer evening while we were doing barn chores.  It reminded me so much of my own childhood growing up out in the country.  It makes me unbelievably happy to see her getting dirty, having fun and doing something as simple as...

Happy Mother’s Day – Lessons Learned From My Kids

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful and loving mothers that are stopping by A Spotted Pony today!  I wanted to share a little story with you about the best part of being a mother and how my children have taught me the most important life lessons.  I hope you enjoy it! Being a Mother is by far the most amazing gift in my life.  I have changed so much since having children and have learned so many important life lessons.   Our little family has faced many difficult times since our children have arrived, but somehow our strength as a family unit and our faith has been only...

The Best Things In Life Aren’t Things

Just a quick post to share with you one of my very favorite quotes.  Although my blog is all about the “things” that I make and the “stuff” that we do, it is certainly not everything that is important to our family!  I strongly believe that “The Best Things In Life Aren’t Things”!  This picture is one that I love from our family photo shoot last fall, and combined with the quote says IT...

What Does Fall Mean To You? – A Baby In A Pumpkin Photo Idea

Fall is by far my favorite time of year.  The colors are breathtaking, the air is crisp, and although I hate to see summer go, I welcome the warm and cozy feeling that fall brings.  It is a time full of family, food, football, and fun in our house. I relish this time of the year.  Things seem to slow down a little, and there is more time for what our family loves.  Time together, enjoying friends, family, and warm comfort food.  There is always a football game to watch, and not quite as much work to do.  We switch from grilling and cold salads to warm soup, homemade bread and baked...
