Twenty 17

The thing I am most thankful for this year is family. Heading into 2017 I made the resolution to make more time for, and create more moments for, our little family. Putting away the ornaments and wrapping up the year has got me a bit emotional and reflective. The days felt like they would never …


Easy Alfredo Bake

I’m a fan of quick and easy dinners and this one goes under that category. While my kids love anything with noodles, my husband prefers a meal he can put on his plate and just dig in. I just want a meal that someone won’t complain about! These ingredients are easy to keep on hand …

7 Black & White Photos

Seven black and white photos of my life; no people and no explanation. NicoleNicole is a wife, mom of three, and dairy farmer from northeastern Michigan.

Potato Soup, love momma

It’s getting a little colder out and when I come in from morning farm chores I am chilled right through my entire body. These brisk fall mornings make me crave sweatshirts, a good book, and comfort food. This recipe I have to share with you is comfort in a bowl. To be honest I don’t …

Family, Farm Wife Feels

9 Years | I do’s & I didn’t’s

See that pager on his hip…I haven’t been the most supportive wife during the last year. When my husband told me he wanted to join the township fire department I didn’t anticipate feeling the way I did–like he was choosing something new over me. We’ve been married for awhile, we are business partners and work …


5 things to do this fall in Michigan

Michigan weather has definitely cooled off since September began; it seems my social media feeds are filled with fall décor and pumpkin everything.  In the spirit of embracing the new season I went out today and bought a pumpkin spice candle…and a new sweatshirt for good measure.  Fall is simply stunning in Michigan, from breathtaking …


Finding balance

  It’s the beginning of a new school year and adjusting to a new schedule. We merge normal every day routines with pretty new clothes and set bedtimes. These first few weeks are exhausting. These first few days are a little bit busier. Today we jumped right into it all, mom life & farm life …


Moments with Dad

It isn’t my farmers favorite job. In fact he would rather be doing pretty much anything else on the farm then hauling manure every other day. But for that little kid, it is awesome. NicoleNicole is a wife, mom of three, and dairy farmer from northeastern Michigan. She and her husband milk 60-70 cows and …


Homemade Cinnamon Rolls! 

These are some damn good cinnamon rolls and you need ((NEED)) them in your life! They are great to keep in the fridge and heat up one at a time or for a hassle free weekend breakfast. And I usually have extra cream cheese frosting and sometimes {always} eat it by the spoonful 😁. The …


Creamy Chicken & Biscuits

I acquired a cook book from a friend of mine recently and as I flipping through its pages a recipe card fell out. It’s one of those cards that I just feel the previous owner ripped from the pages of some other soures and used more than once. It must be a good recipe… Not …
