We got to spend a few days with some of our favorite people, at our favorite farm, Yonder Way Farm! I just love Lynsey and her family so much. I went out on a whim last year and emailed her---we had never met before, but anytime she posted something on Instagram, I just had this feeling that we would be great friends. Anywho, after she determined I wasn't psycho, she let us come down for a visit last year and it was a blast. The kids couldn't wait to get back (and really neither could I).
The Kramers have 4 girls (or chicks as they affectionately call them) all the same ages as our kids. They each have someone to hang out with (or boss around, in the case of Exie and Olive). We literally pull up to the farm and the kids take off and we don't see them until we ring the bell for lunch and dinner. What a life! I could get used to that.
There are 10 kids between the 2 of us friends. We look like a daycare any place we go. But let's be honest, the Andersons alone look like a daycare any place we go.
When Olive and Exie weren't busy bossing each other around, Olive tried to boss the chickens around. They all flee every time she comes near.
Lynsey, my free range buddy for life. So thankful for this sweet friend!
(Do these turkeys/chickens make my hoodie look good?
Well, my hoodie doesn't need much to look good cause it's already perfect.
Evy's Tree is the amazing store behind my amazing hoodie, The Sophie. They just released a new color, graphite, and it's currently on sale! Get it while it's hot, which is always!)
Farm life is very relaxing for me. I'm sure it's because I'm a guest, and not the one running the farm. But I love the life my kids live when we are there. I'm really hopeful that one day we will have a little bit more of "wide open spaces"...I don't need 100 acres or anything. Just 1 or 2 would do. Maybe 5. And chickens. Lots of chickens. And a wrap-around porch and a white picket fence. Maybe a big old swing on the front porch. And definitely a large fire pit...I have visions of our teenagers sitting around the fire, playing their instruments and singing. Like a modern day Partridge Family. Hmmmm. Dreaming, always dreaming.
