Join the Recipe Exchange!

Friend, gathering around the table with those we love offers us the unique opportunity to share of those who came long before us through preparing recipes that have been passed down from family members from one generation to the next. I want to invite you to the table and have you share a family recipe…

There is Hope + A New Beginning Awaiting You.

Hey there friend! With a week away from the new year, have you taken some time to reflect over the year? How are you different from the beginning of the year? What risks or pauses did you lean into and how did they shape where you are today? It may not come as a surprise…

Wishing you a week of wandering

Hey there friend! How are you? Are you ready for this coming weekend or are you still working down your to-do list? I’m also kind of wondering if you are feeling the same about the holiday or have you lost a bit of that “jingle” in your step? As you may find yourself feeling a…

Christmas Time in the Middle

Hey there friend! It’s a busy time out here in the country! Our sweet little town had its first community tree lighting. As a member of our local Good Neighbor group and as a board member of our historical society, we collaborated in decorating the museum, prepared “Santa’s Workshop” where families came to visit Santa…

It’s the Busiest Time of the Year

Hey there friend! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. While I should probably be asking you how your Thanksgiving meal was, I find myself wanting to know, “Did you get your tree up?” We host Thanksgiving each year so while many are putting up their Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, we…

Over the River and Through the Woods

Last night around five o’clock, I received a text message from our school district announcing cancelation of school for the next two days due to illness and not having enough subs. As you can imagine, our children were…

A Snowy Weekend in the Middle

Hey there friend! Did you have a good weekend? I hope you found some time to relax doing something you enjoyed. I often times find it difficult being idle and rest for me often times looks like doing something that is different from what I do during the week. Sometimes that is doing something creative,…

Life Gets Sweeter in the Middle.

Hey there friend! Can you believe we are already a week into November? I’m not sure about you, but this past weekend Southwest Ohio experienced high winds and unseasonably warm temperatures. You certainly won’t catch us complaining about warm temperatures in November! It made tackling some of those last-minute projects we’ve been working on absolutely…

šŸŽ™ļøHauntings at the Homestead-New Podcast!

Hey there friend! I’ve got a fun podcast episode for you this week. I’ve been asked directly and in round about ways if our home is “haunted.” For some reason the word “haunted” seems dark and unfriendly and this home is certainly opposite from that. Many of the Wehr family members were born in our…

Mid-week “hello” from the middle!

Hey there friend! Anyone else feel like you’ve been running non-stop the entire month of October? The fall is a busy time for our family out here in the middle. With school well under way, we find ourselves on the go in the evenings. We are typically running to one of the kiddo’s practice or…
