New Adventures

It has been many moons since I posted anything in my blog. Life has been uber busy. We moved 2 hours away to the foothills of Virginia. I finished my 1st year as an art teacher.

I had my 3rd child, sweet little Scarlett, on April 22.

My husband and I started a candle company; Dixie Candles: Southern Inspired Scents.

Which can be purchased in our Etsy Shop or through our website.

You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram!

And finally I started a new Etsy Shop: Piedmont Peddler to sell goodies that filter through my life. Where I have strange things like a Haggadah from 1965 and a rare ink bottle I dug up in our yard.

Looking forward to my new endeavors and starting my 2nd year of teaching!

I hate this shot. My hair is a total mess! This was one of those shots were I was really somewhere cool and could have gotten a way better shot. It could have been creative and awesome, but I was having to keep up with a my little daughter and stay with my family. So, instead I just tried to get a shot, any shot and this was what I got. My parents, children, my nephew and I all went to the Tractor Museum in Colonial Heights, Virginia. It is a huge warehouse type building filled with repainted and super clean tractors from every make, model, brand and year. They also have tons of other cool old stuff, bottles, tools, bikes, cars, trucks, signs and the like. It was an awesome place to explore. We were the only people there that day and had free run of the place. The kids loved it!

Is not born with him; there is always work
And tools to work withal, for those who will….”
