Life Outside Social Media… Medora & Sturgis

Social media has been an amazing thing in my life. I met my husband thanks to social media, I’ve formed some of the best friends I could ask for via social media, I have made a name for myself via social media. Social media has given me more blessings than I can count. But sometimes I let social media run my life. It feels like the end of the world if I don’t get “insert type of post here” up…

Refreshing My Passion for North Dakota

Forest Gump really had it right. Life really is like a box of chocolates.. You never really know what you are going to get. You never really know what sort of chocolate you will be popping into your mouth. There are caramels, nuts, fillings, fudge… But in the end, no matter what chocolate you pick, it never fails that you walk away pleasantly surprised about what’s on the inside. That was last week for me.    Last week I attended…

Moving Your Blog to Self Hosted

Whenever I read articles and listened to social media friends give talks about self hosted blogs, I heard the same thing over and over again. Self hosted is the way to go, self hosted is the ONLY way to go, self hosted is worth it…. Bottom line, self hosted seemed pretty awesome. But there was one catch, I was scared it was over my head. I am not a web designer nor do I know very much coding or techie…

Social Media and Blog Year End Review

I seriously love year end reviews. I love looking back on the year we just had. Time goes by so fast it’s easy to forget what all happened. There is something about looking back at the last year, it makes you realize how far you’ve come and of course all the fun adventures and things you did this year. 2013 was a pretty awesome year and has already been deemed The Year of Marriage in my book. I did a…

2013. The Year of Marriage.

Found this via my new friend Nicole of Three 31 in Texas. She’s a hoot if you don’t follow her! Anyway, she did a year end review link up she actually found from a friend.

Gifts Made with Instagram Photos

Instagram is rapidly becoming one of the most popular social media sites out there. I mean, it’s genius. Combining the power of social media with photography is pretty much one of the best things ever! But as we take more and more photos with our phones and they fill up with images… are we really doing anything with those photos? Does anyone ever print their photos anymore? I love a good print or photo book in my hands.. I love…

Giving Thanks

I am beyond blessed for so many things. I do my best to thank the good Lord morning or evening for the things he has brought into my life and for this amazing life he has given me. But sometimes I am not as good at it as I should be.. Instead of flooding my Facebook and other social media feeds with daily Thanks I decided to put it into one post. Here is my thirty days of thanks, things…

Finding the Silver Lining

Often times those of us blogging about agriculture get criticized for continuing the stigma of “romanticizing” the farm life. When my last post went literally viral and made it onto the Huffington Post. I had a few people who criticized my sunshine outlook on farm life. The truth is, they are right. Sometimes we do romanticize farm life. Want to know why we do it? We do it because if you don’t find that shiny silver lining in the small…
