Birthday Wishes

Dear Friends,

Today is my 43rd birthday, and I get to spend it with my sweet family, just relaxing and enjoying each others' company. Nothing could be better!

The past week have found us busily cleaning the yard and house, discarding what we don't need, and organizing what we do. It's AMAZING how much clutter can happen in five and half years in the same house! We're boxing up what we think we won't need in the next few months, having faith that the Lord will point us in the right direction for our homestead in the country.

I have dreams of starting a U-Pick herb and flower farm,

(photos taken from the internet)

Complete with butterfly house filled with lots of native plants (which we'll also sell).

Of course we'll have to have some goats for milking, as well as for clearing brush around the property (maybe not this many!)~

There will be a big barn that we will convert into a place for teaching workshops and putting on down home musical productions and dancing~


And of course a big farm pond for cooling off after a hot day's work!

I know it's out there somewhere, waiting for us to find it. If you think about it, perhaps you wouldn't mind keeping our family in your prayers that we might find it soon?



p.s. On our farm, we're sure to find lots of chickens, too! We made this little video for other chicken lovers out there~


  1. Happy Birthday to you! I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day. :)

  2. Happy birthday, Dear! I wish you great success in finding what you're looking for, and achieving your dream. :)

  3. Cute! Prayers coming for you from me! Please God, give them the best home possible for all their dreams to raise all these kids with nature! Happy birthday! (I wish you were my neighbors!...not here though...if I ever get out to the country more of course...) Andrea

  4. Happiest of birthdays to my sweet mother!! I'm so grateful to our Heavenly Father for blessing me with you for a mother...and for being able to celebrate another birthday with you!

    Here's to all the best!

    I love you and I like you!

    Love, Audrey

  5. Happy belated birthday, dear Marqueta! I've always hoped that one day you would have a a perfect Tasha Tudor style homestead. Your plans sound wonderful. Of course I will pray for you!


  6. Good morning Marqueta! I just wanted to drop in and tell you that I just finished watching your wild edibles video on YouTube. It was excellent! Thank you for the wonderful information.



Thank you for coming to visit — I look forward to hearing from you!
