One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Happiest Moments from 2010

I asked my kids to write me a letter with their happiest moments, so I thought I might share a few of my own.

1. Camping with hubby and cooking all of our food over the campfire.

2.  Canning for the first time.

3.  Cooking meals entirely from the garden.

4.Writing my first novel during NaNoWriMo in November.

5.  Cutting my first cord of wood by hand (and all of my farmgirl accomplishments).

6.  My outdoor reading room.

7.  All of the beautiful butterflies I took pictures of.

8.  Watching the sun rise.

9.   Hiking.

10.  My flower gardens.

Of course this is not a complete list, but it's a small start of sharing my happiest memories.  What are yours?
