Springtime in Wyoming is DRASTICALLY different than anything I grew up with in the South land. Spring always spoke  of green grass, dogwood blossoms, bunnies, Sunday's Best Dress, the chirping of birds, and families getting together around a well placed table. 

Wyoming boasts a spring with very little promise so far. Snow still covers the mountains and the air is crisp and cold; many nights still dropping down into the single digits. I haven't seen hide nor hair of the birdies singing spring into being. 

The hub of my home is the kitchen and dining area. My ultimate dream is a formal dining room. When we rented the home we are in, we chose to use the extra room on the main floor as a bedroom, as the kids having their own space is very important.

I love the coziness of our home, and enjoy the challenge of decorating and expressing myself creatively through every season. I know you can have a beautiful space no matter your budget or size of your home.

As a little girl , books were my gateway into another world. I could travel to cities such as Paris, the forests of India, or into the secret garden of a little girl in England.  I longed for the day I'd have a secret place of my own, to lie under the stars on a warm summers night, or sit in a gazebo in the dead of winter watching the snow twinkle under the light of the moon, holding hands with whoever my sweetheart would some day be.

As a little girl, I loved the carol Silent Night. As a mother I loved any night that was silent. When my home is quiet and darkness has settled over the land, it is the time in which I am most creative. 

As I decorated my favorite home space and the area which most represents family to me, I listened to my favorite group, Celtic Woman, and let my creativity flow. In the silence of this night, I am most thankful for the gift of my loved ones. 

Embrace The Magic of the Holidays! Do you remember lying under the Christmas tree as a child, falling asleep with the twinkling lights overhead, and the smell of pine filling the air around you? Of all the memories from yesteryear, the Holiday Season was the most magical.

    Country Girl

    Kimber and her husband currently live in beautiful Western Wyoming with four of their seven children, as three have flown the coop...um ... the nest. While growing up mainly in the cities of the south eastern United States, she has come to appreciate the simple joys and laughable situations she finds herself in, married to a cowboy and living "rural." 

    They have recently moved from a 200 + acre farm miles outside of a town of 300 people in Montana to a smaller farm on 2 acres outside a town of 1800 in beautiful Wyoming. This move was precipitated by a job change her sweet man was blessed to have come his way! This move has given her more time to pursue her favorite activities of up cycling and re-purposing  furniture! 

    This blog is meant to share the joys, challenges and daily struggles of a large family, and of a woman who bends and molds herself into a self proclaimed "counterfeit country girl." She has found that the series of struggles, fortunate and humorous events have strengthened and expanded her understanding of  parenting, life, relationships, and faith. 

    Kimber has a passion for decorating on a dime (budget), learning the art of homesteading and sharing her adventures in hand crafting, canning, and living simply. As a couple, she and her cowboy have the ultimate goal of purchasing their own land and learning to live as much "off the grid" as is possible in this day and age!

     Her pastimes include creating a beautiful home within a tight budget, navigating the life of her children, singing,  songwriting,  face-booking, creating,  reading, writing, crafting (which occasionally includes dangerous power tools), attending activities with her girl friends, and country swing dancing with her husband. 

    She believes that laughing, kissing, holding hands, relishing the sweetness of children, supporting families, staying positive in the face of whatever life throws your way, and celebrating faith is the way to a healthy and lovely life. Simplicity of life is kind to the soul and does not allow one to get caught up in keeping up with others. It is a deep hope those who read this blog will be blessed and find a little something to brighten up and encourage them on their path.
