erinneiner Charles Baldwin and Sons, est. 1888. | West Stockbridge, MA

When I was in high school, I was a pretty big Martha Stewart fan (this was, of course, pre-Pinterest age). I visually devoured the magazines, poured over the recipes (wondering if I could actually pull them off), and even recorded her show on our VHS player. I distinctly remember an article on her favorite vanilla extract, shown in perfect little brown bottles. This little company in small town Massachusetts, where they have been making vanilla extract since the late 1880's, was apparently where it was at (according to Martha). The magic ingredient to baking? I naively wondered. Some years later, with good and bad Martha-recipe experiences under my belt, I certainly have acquired a more realistic approach to baking but still enjoy the occasional Martha challenge. But what I really love is the fact that the hills surrounding me in this little state is filled with wonderful little stops like this one. The same company I had read about all those years ago. Tried and true. Still going strong after all these years. #baldwinvanillaextract #weststockbridge #berkshires #marthastewart

erinneiner Happy Birthday to my real-life friend! We met by what may have seemed like happenstance, me showing up with my then two little boys for storytime. She was the one reading the (barefoot) books to the rowdy group but smiled on. Then a shy introduction turned into a walk to the park over peanut butter jelly sandwiches, where our hearts knit and a friendship began over talk of our faith. I have enjoyed our friendship over every last cup of coffee! And we both know that day was Divinely initiated! Hope you are having a very blessed birthday, R! @rbaburina 3w

erinneiner I'm discovering that jewelry to me is a bit more like art than it is just jewelry. And what fun additions are these from my friend Shyla from @bedeckle!! 2mon

erinneiner There's a lot to be said behind this painting (like making it across town to find the right size canvas in the midst of a snowy storm, and a table full of my artistic mess late into the night, and being inspired by a 99 cent finger puppet from Ikea), but in the end I've finished this 10" x 10" acrylic painting to submit to a local fundraiser. I'm pretty excited about the fact that this was on my to-do list to inspire myself to chase a little corner of my artistic heart, and knowing that it will soon live on someone's wall. #10x10berkshireart 3mon

erinneiner One of my New Years' projects (aka resolution) is to record one second a day using this app. It felt a bit daunting at first, but it's already a ton of fun just after the first week. Enjoy! 4mon

  •   erinneiner @bethelrising Any snow for you guys? 4mon
  •   bethelrising Yes, though it's just rain now. I whispered across a sleeping three year old to my husband, "It snowed." In a matter of two minutes all three younger ones were up and bouncing off the walls. 4mon
