Hello everyone,

    I know it has been years since I last updated. A lot of things have changed in my life. First change in my life was almost 2 years ago, I got divorced from my husband Wayne. We just grew apart and he wasn't happy and asked me for a divorce. At the time I didn't think I was unhappy but now I see that I really was. I'm so so much happier now! He was very good to me and was very fair in the divorce. So when I got divorced I also lost My Lilac Cottage Homestead. I miss my chickens and garden, but mostly I'm fine with it. I needed some time to recharge and get closer to my God!! I have found that I LOVE hiking!!!! Megan and Levi with only their one child moved to Virginia. In the Blue Ridge Mountains between Charlottesville Va, and Lynchburg Va. Their house in nestled in between two Mountains, De Priest on one side and Three Ridges on the other. Within short walking distance of the Appalachian Tail. It is SO SO BEAUTIFUL there!!! I will post a few pictures sometime, maybe today. I don't know.  :o) While Levi and Megan have been living in Virginia they have had another baby. He is 8 months now. So now there is Matthias 2, and Isaac 8 months. I'm so so truly Blessed!!!!!! I am living in Ohio still. I live with my parents for now. My Mom had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, second stage. She has had the surgery called the Whipple. The name sounds nicer than the surgery itself. It is a VERY difficult surgery to recover from. But the Dr and nurse have all told her that she has done better than most 40yr olds. She is very strong minded. So I live here for now taking care of her, and the house. But all and all God has been very good to me over the last couple of years. The Lord Giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord.

 This is Megan and Me and the boys. We were going on a nice walk.

   This is a picture of them when they first moved down there. Matthias was still pretty little. This was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I really love how Matthias is holding his head and hand, haha

    This is me on top of a place called Spy Rock, in Montebello Va. just off the Appalachian Trail. It is a granite rock that stick up above the trees, so you can see a complete 360 view around.                                      

                This is a video of Spy Rock, so you can get a idea of where I was.        



  1. I'm glad to hear that you're back to blogging. The Lord has brought you through a very difficult time in your life. I went through it, too, many, many years ago. But if we draw near to the Lord, He will equip us to continue on in His ways. You look so beautiful and peaceful! I look forward to following you once again.

  2. Hi Kelly. I was going to say I'm sorry to hear of your divorce, but I really do believe that all things work together for the good of those who are in Christ.
    I do hope Mom recovers 100%! Please let me know how you are since your last post was in 2013.
    I'm doing great since I went for part time work rather than full time and have picked up the homestead dream again where I left off. I hope to have 2 miniature goats next year. Any advise?
