We stumbled upon this beautiful 60 acre farm that we now call home about three years ago, it even seems hard to believe it has been three years that we have had this magical place. We have always had the dream to have a farm. We wanted to be self sustainable and a different way to raise our kids. We wanted open space, land and animals....a simpler life....a more rewarding end to the day. This new way of simple is a funny thing. By stripping our lives down to basic raw living we have realized that it is a harder life; it comes with challenges....heartbreak....loss....struggles....tough choices....sleepless nights....early mornings, it is laced with self doubt and constant questioning of ones self. But through every single piece of every challenge the upside is ten-fold. The rewards are beyond what we could have imagined. We come out of every situation with a bit more knowledge and confidence. We embrace all that this place has to offer and are excited to keep moving forward....adding more to our lives and inching closer to everything we have ever wanted! Its pretty exciting.....I look forward to sharing little pieces with you as we trudge through this pretty awesome journey!
They say the new year is the best time to start or start~again.....my New Year Resolution is to start writing again. I have missed it so much. It is a passion....an outlet....a reprieve! A sweet place to share, reflect and write down all my exciting plans for our future! I am looking forward to all that the future has in store, I have a feeling its going to be FUN!!

Makes about 12
2 cups organic old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup creamy all natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup trail mix
I used chocolate chips but I figure you can use any thing you would like as far as add-ins! I am going to make a "grown-up" batch with pecans and cranberries!!
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the oats and coconut on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and toast for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.
Combine the peanut butter and honey in a glass bowl or measuring cup and microwave for about one minute.
Add the toasted oats and coconut to the peanut butter mixture along with the trail mix (if you use chocolate chips wait until it cools a bit more....my chips melted which was fine by us) and stir to combine. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Working with dampened hands or a small ice-cream scoop, shape into 12 one-inch balls and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
These are Yummy!! I hope you enjoy!!
