The Farm + A Happy Soup Experiment

Hey friends! We’re coming off a wonderful weekend in Door County with some close friends and their two sweet littles.

Well I’m a couple days late on our monthly update – and with good reason! We’ve been busy as can be over at our house, and I haven’t had time to sit down and reflect. This 11th month of Dane’s life – just so happens to be the shortest month of the year – so […]
