In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.
In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

Pleasing to the Eye
Just a quick post today. I am going to share with you a couple of pictures that have been pleasing to me in the past week. Nothing super. Just simple and sweet.
My breakfast. Such pretty colors.
My kitties, snuggling in the closet. A rare occurance since the
grey one is generally attacking the calico one.
