Remember that house tour I started ages ago? Well, I have waffled so much on if I wanted to continue it, mainly because it is my desire that everything on Simply Home brings eternal encouragement of some kind.

That’s right 17 more mouths, or should I say beaks? We want to introduce you to the girls, but first let’s start at the beginning with the chicken coop… Of course with 17 chickens on the way a coop was in order, so we have been busy busy building our coop over the past month. … Continue reading Building Our New Chicken Coop, Come on Over and Take a Look!
