This week we are fighting snow storms, we had a month of wonderful spring-like weather that got our orchard blooming then it dipped down in the 30's a dusted everything in snow. So were snuggeling into the Cottage with a big cup of something hot until spring comes again!

Hi All! In 2013 my husband and I purchased our home and have been transforming it into our dream homestead. Follow along at A Chick And Her Garden and see how our little slice of heaven grows. I'll be sharing our experiences, animals, crafts, recipes and more!
I'm Anna - foodie, research-addict, and mini-homesteader. I'm married to a man who can learn to do anything from a book (sailing! changing shocks & struts! making perfect cheesecake!). And I'm also Mama to one delightful little lady, who keeps me on my toes!
