A Few New Things {Including 2016 Barn Store Sale Dates}

We have been busy with our newest blessing. 
We are in a season of family & enjoying fleeting moments with our baby boy, who as cliche as it sounds, is growing up way, too, fast.

Garrett Brent Steffl decided to arrive on a beautiful harvest morning, just as the farmer was getting ready to begin the first day of harvesting corn. Thankfully, the farmer had finished the soybean harvest the day prior and that afternoon joked, "You can have the baby now, the beans are out." Only in farm families do we pray to delay birthing a child to fit the harvest schedule. Early the next morning, we went into labor. Our "good-little farmer" was born that same morning as if he knew there were many acres of corn waiting on his daddy. We are certain this little boy waited for dad to get the beans out. 

We haven't told Garrett that most of his birthday parties will probably be in a field, until he can drive. After that, he will most likely be celebrating his birthdays in a tractor. (I wish I were kidding.)

The journey to delivering our little miracle was shared by so many awesomely-helpful friends, family, and church-family. We are thankful and blessed by your presence in our lives. 

Garrett truly helped grow our family's faith in God's timing & His promises!

For baby Garrett, we created a WWI & WWII aviation themed nursery featuring some of the farmers favorite planes. 
We will share soon..
Also, we recently completed our upstairs-family bathroom remodel and this bad blogger hopes to share the details before the end of summer. {In a season of mothering more than blogging ;)}
Below, a photo from this spring of the upstairs bathroom work-in-progress, that is now finished! 
And finally, after prayerfully considering opening the store, 
we have decided to keep sale dates very limited this year. 

We will be OPEN TWICE this year:
Saturday, June 25th and Saturday & September 10th. 
Hours: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

This limited schedule will allow family to be our number one priority. It will also allow for each sale to be full of awesome 
found-altered-repurposed-made {farm}fabulous
one-of-kind treasures for both you and your homes!

See you all the last Saturday of June on the farm!
