Healing for the Soul

Exploring New O’Hana Farm, here in beautiful Tennessee, with family, friends, and our pups, has been such an adventure and healing for my soul. We are coming up on our first year anniversary in less than a week! We were talking about this as we saw the colors changing on some of our trees.

For the next few posts, I am going to look through the year in photos. There may be repeats as I share them with you, but hopefully you will find them to be not only pretty, but interesting and comforting.

The first photo may not look like much, but can ONLY be truly appreciated if you are sitting on our swing in the Whimsy Garden we are creating!! Morning, Noon, and Night, being there is like viewing and feeling a little bit of heaven!

The double rainbow is shared from our side patio, and when I saw them, I felt like I was the only one on earth. I must have took 30 photos.

The moon is from last weekend. Our trampoline was destroyed by the huge tornadoes that ripped through Tennessee. We have been waiting to find and purchase a new one. As the family enjoyed glow sticks, s’mores, and jumping, I took the moon photo. We enjoyed staying up late, a bonfire, and family. The moon shone through the clouds, gently.

We truly have Gatlinburg, TN views as you look at the next 3 photos! Our home has plenty of windows that we leave without curtains and shades to enjoy the beauty of the seasons! Happy Autumn! :)Jen

First farm year full of beautiful times

Memories of our first year with family and friends on New O’Hana Farm, TN are playing a happy tune of https://youtu.be/qM1YMeDsc-M Owl City When Can I See You Again? From Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph πŸ™‚ When can we do this again? The lyrics talk of learning to fly and leaving to explore, but wondering when we can gather together again.

To ALL 12 of our grandbabies, family, and friends! Welcome to the farm. VISIT STAY PLAY EXPLORE BUILD MEMORIES AND KNOW YOU ARE LOVED

Moving our belongings in to each room. Picking out new furniture. Painting one of our family rooms and the Green’s Lab. Clearing out the barn of the most straw bales I have ever been around. The fun of picking, buying, and raising our dogs, goats, and chickens. We have enjoyed exploring our woods and land several times during the day and night! Holidays, Birthdays, Weekends, Card Night, spent cooking and talking together, building memories with photos, sleepovers, bonfires, great food, and wonderful people!

For all our grandchildren and children, family and friends, thank you for all your hard work, love, and spending time with us! Happy Autumn!! Let’s finish this year with a lot more of the same! :)Jen

Whispers of the Season

The morning sun chases the shadows in a perfect line across the field. The shadows drift quietly in to the woods. The rays filter down through the crisp winter sky, carefully warming each blade of grass. Frost gently disappears, as the whispers of the season appear. The Daffodils bloom. The Iris wait.
