The second week of December we had visitors from Virginia, a brother and sister that Josiah had the blessing of interning with and working with all Summer down at Polyface. 
We had lots of fun showing them our property and all our dreams for improvement and expansion. They are a couple steps ahead of us on their farm back home, and it was nice to be able to discuss ideas with people that know where you're coming from!

Josiah had the chance during the summer to go visit Benjamin and Rebekah's farm and family, and he came back with lots of videos of their jam session at their home. 

They are extremely talented musicians.. but Josiah forgot to ask them to bring along their instruments, and all we have is Faith's little Patriotic Folk guitar. (actually while they were here we discovered we have another long forgotten guitar hiding in the backroom, but alas it had a broken string..) But even so, we still enjoyed a little bit of music in and around conversation.

Unfortunately they could only stay through the weekend and had to leave Monday morning, but we managed to fit in a visit to where Josiah and Faith work, a beautiful farm in Metamora, with around 300 acres of property... most of which we walked! :) 

{We all happened to be wearing shades of pink on Sunday} 

 It was great to be able to spend time and get to know better, 2 of the amazing people Josiah got to work with at Polyface, and hopefully this won't be the last time they get to visit!


The Challenge Accomplished

This is the 50th post this year. I have officially won the challenge
And we still have a couple days left in 2015!!! I'll have to see how many more posts I can smash in! ;)

Honestly I am very grateful to my "little" brother for making it into a challenge, or I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done it! 

My own personal challenge for 2016 will be, barring any extraneous circumstances, to post on this blog once a week.... we shall see.
