It’s day 3,198 of our shelter-in-place. Ok, it’s not, but it feels like it! It’s been an emotional roller-coaster these last few days. The governor extended our shelter-in-place for another month.

Bailey then proceeded to peacefully nap while keeping one eye on me as I worked around the…

It was in the middle of last week when I knew that I needed a significant change in attitude.

I didn’t even bother…

Last week, the deer hunting in Illinois officially began. Half of our household headed two hours south to the family farm to try their luck at filling our freezer with meat. Before heading out for the morning, my husband usually texts me to let me know that they are heading out and would text me…

By Missy Eversole / January 29, 2019 /

By Missy Eversole / January 25, 2019 /

Dear Mom, It’s been ten years since I’ve heard your voice. Ten years since your grandsons listened to you sing that silly “Bushel and a Peck” song. Ten years of wanting to pick up the phone when the boys hit a milestone, or when parenting got so tough that I just needed to get advice…
