iheartfaces | Red


If you think we live on a really cool cattle ranch in Oklahoma like The Pioneer Woman, you're wrong.  If you think we live in Connecticut, make our own maple syrup and play Scrabble with Martha Stewart, think again.  If you think we grow our own vegetables and homeschool our four kids, well -  we've considered it - but this is currently not our life.  Our life is in the suburban south.  Why, oh why, you might then wonder, is Arielle standing in front of this charming, weathered barn?  

This barn stands at the back entrance to our neighborhood of mass-produced homes and postage-stamp lots.  It's the last hold-out of a life that once was.  It's an outpost that makes my youngest daughter squeal  with delight, "Mom, go the barn way, the barn way!"  And so we take the windy road past the barn, roll down our windows and make animal sounds, hoping to entice the delightful creatures that might live within, imagining what we cannot see.


Happy Valentine's Day Y'all!
