Casual Friday: Down at the Strawberry Patch

Whew. The first week back getting back to business around here and it feels good. Like, really good. Slowly, but surely I feel like we are finding our groove which is making all the difference (if you missed where I have been you catch up here and here). I just do better when I am […]

Dickens of a Christmas on Franklin’s Main Street

While none of us can wipe the smiles from our faces with how quaint our new town is, it is an ongoing joke with Jarett and the kids that I am their very own Lorelai Gilmore now. And that we, in fact, moved to our very own Stars Hollow. Okay, so I may squeal with […]

Saturdays at Franklin’s Farmers Market

You better believe that when we were researching Nashville as a potential future home at the top of our pros list was this. The accessibility of fresh foods and produce. To know where our food is coming from and develop relationships with the talented individuals who make it happen. It’s something that had been stirring […]

As John Muir would say and our journey to Tennessee. Catch it on Haus of Layne #RoadTrip #SummerMemories #MovingToTennessee

As John Muir Would Say

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” We woke up this morning with a strangely calm feeling. Despite the journey ahead, 1600 miles with the seven of us and our entire life packed into the trailer and cars, we feel strangely calm. Despite not knowing what is out in Franklin, Tennessee and despite walking […]

The Space Between Doubt and Faith

A friend called the other day to ask how things were and how the move to Tennessee was coming along. As I opened my mouth to answer from the other end of the line, my voice cracked as the tears began to fall… “I don’t even know right now”. And then, as if the surface […]

Moving Organization Tips and How to Tackle The Packing

When we decided that we were moving last month and that it will be approximately 1600 miles away, I knew that with our entire brood (not to mention having our belongings stored for 3 months while between homes) I had to approach it as methodically as I possibly could. No one has time for Mama […]

Our Leap of Faith and Adventures in Moving

I promise there is a grand excuse for the quietness that has been going on ’round these parts. It seems that the entire month of December whizzed by and left us a bit dizzy with some big decisions our family was suddenly making. To be quite honest, while the holidays were lovely, our minds and […]
