b_schwartz09 Packing makes me feel like a hoarder. I hate moving. #holdme #glassofwineinhand
Related: we NEED help peeps. If you are local I would be eternally grateful for some help and company packing. We have a deadline for getting out of our house and it's really difficult doing all this just the two of us with two little kids underfoot.

  •   kyrstenvanwieren I gotta come see this place! 6d
  •   azombieee I hope you guys are taking video or pictures of before and after. This is looking so nice, itll be mind blowing to compare when its all done 😀 6d
  •   b_schwartz09 @azombieee yes! I have a ton of before pictures on my computer and I think I'm going to blog about it. Just no time right now to but once things settle down I'm thinking a remodel series on my blog would be awesome and then I'd transition it to a blog on how we grow our farm. 6d
  •   azombieee Looking forward to that! 6d

b_schwartz09 One more share today: so all of you probably know that we have a mini farm... What most people don't know (unless you've been here) is that we do what we do on 1 acre. I've been careful to keep those kind of details offline since Michigan has a bad habit of shutting down small scale farms if they aren't on a lot of land or have close neighbors (ours are 40 ft away on each side!). Thanks to the Right To Farm Act we have legal backing but have always tried to be cautious anyway to avoid an expensive legal battle like other farms I know of. I'm so thankful to be moving to 14.2 acres where we can farm the way we want and share openly without fear of our local government shutting us down. 2w

b_schwartz09 Yesterday's prompt "treasures" - our new property has been full of living treasures. So many things here that I have always wanted in a place: weeping willows, lilies of the valley, and lilacs. So many lilac bushes. #BEcheerfulphotoaday 2w
