Christmas Shed

November 29, 2009


One of our favorite Buttercup Farm traditions is to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving. The week leading up to Turkey day is filled with activities to get us all in the Holiday spirit. I do love sitting down at the farm table for breakfast looking out the window at the Christmas Shed.

The Perfect Weekend

November 27, 2009

At dusk our caravan rounded the last corner before arriving at our Alpine Lake weekend girls retreat. “I MUST STOP”, I yelled as I slammed on the brakes and jumped out of the van. As I ran to the trunk to get my camera I swung around to face one of the most beautiful sunsets of my lifetime.
When I think back on that moment, I realize that the words I screamed when stopping to see the sunset, could appropriately be directed toward me. During this busy time of year it is challenging for me to carve time for myself. In the midst of the holiday season, a challenging year for our business, the launching of a new business, and the fall activity schedule for the girls, I was in desperate need of a forced “STOP”.

On the first weekend of November, I walked for 3 1/2 miles around the lake, I took a 3 hour nap, and I danced and laughed with girlfriends. I spent an hour taking photos, I watched two movies, I ate well and I rested. The gift of taking this time turned out to be a scrumptious recipe for rejuvenation and relaxation. It was the perfect weekend.

Buttercup Princess on her Throne

November 5, 2009

Here ye! Here ye! I do declare there are many princesses living here at Buttercup Farm. This one watches over me from her throne while I tap away at my computer. From time to time, Princess Tasha will demand some attention…mostly getting exactly what she wants.
