Color Me Rad 5K!

 

Who’s ready for a colorful time!?

Color me Rad 5K is coming to Ballston Spa at the Elms Family Farm on September 14th!! Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, the truth, personal responsibility and grizzly bears. Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad.

Have you ever participated in a race? Fun Run? Let me know in the comments!

If running isn’t your thing, feel free to walk, jog or push a stroller. Color Me Rad is all about getting out and sharing some Happy, Healthy & Together with your favorite running buddies.

Bountiful Blessings

I’ve always dreamed of owning a farm. Acreage, chickens, goats, a bountiful vegetable garden, a beautiful flower garden. But alas, I only have 1/4 acre, and it’s mostly shade.

I’ve had echinacea and mint growing for years but I’ve been too busy to try to harvest them. I never knew what to do either. But this year I decided to do it. I cut a few echinacea and a bunch of mint. And now I have them hanging up in my house to dry. I’m really excited for the end result! Can we say mint tea? Yes please! 😄.

We have a small chicken farm here. 20 chickens. They’re fun. The kids love them. I love the fresh eggs we get every day! If you’ve never had farm fresh eggs, you’re really missing out. They’re so much better than store bought eggs!

And the berries!! I’m so excited about these berries! We’ve always had black raspberries but this is the first year for red raspberries. A bird much have dropped a seed because they just randomly sprouted up in the back yard! There was an invasive vibe growing back there, along with other weeds. I’ve worked hard to remove all the weeds to really give this berry bush a chance to thrive, and it has! There’s easily 100+ berries growing and I couldn’t be more delighted! It’s a small reminder to me that God will provide and give you all the desires of your heart. 💜

Do you have a farm or garden? I’d love to hear about it!

Summer is for s’mores

Summertime is officially here! And summertime calls for s’mores.

I’ve got a lot of hungry mouths to feed this summer and it’s not always idea to make a fire outside. Let’s be honest, it’s hot! 90 degrees and 90% humidity is NOT s’mores weather!

I decided to treat the kids to indoor s’mores this week. They were delicious! Ooey and gooey just like on a campfire!

It’s also berry season around here! A mysterious raspberry bush has been growing in the back yard and no one knows how it got there! I think a bird must have dropped a seed. Who knows! All I know is now we have several red raspberry plants growing! I couldn’t be happier! My children all love raspberries. They could eat them everyday but they’re so expensive. We have black raspberries, those have been around for years. But the red ones are new! I’m delighted to be able to just go in the back and pick some for them! They’re absolutely delicious too!

Happy summer everyone!
