Interested in buying a side of beef? This post walks you through the process from finding a farmer to processing and storing!

Each year, my husband and I purchase a side or quarter of beef to fill our freezer. We love buying beef this way, but if you’ve never done it before the process can be intimidating.

Ever feel like you have a mean girl on your shoulder pointing out all of your flaws? That voice can be deafening, but it's not the truth. You are precious and deserve to be treated with kindness, not just by other people, but by yourself as well.

I’m taking a brief break from recipes today to share a special Mother’s Day post that’s been on my heart for awhile. Do you ever feel like you have a mean girl in your head? Sometimes I feel like Regina George is resting on my shoulder, pointing out my flaws, and reminding me of all the ways I don’t stack up. The things we say to ourselves in our heads are often far worse than anything we’d say to another human being. And you know what? I’m tired of listening to the mean girl in my head. I hope this post will spur us to treat ourselves with kindness, patience, and grace even in the midst of our failures. You are precious, friends. Thanks for reading along and I’ll be back with more recipes next week!

These must haves for baby's first year were the things I didn't find on any registry, but they made our first year as parents so much easier!
