I am sad to share that this will be the last weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post, titled All Time Favorites. Many of my all time favorite photos have been taken while gardening. Here is a look back, at a few of my favorites from last year…
Our goal has always been to create a life we don’t need a vacation from. We call Indigo Acres our “Stay-cation”. Our 13 acres, in West Michigan, represent our passion for all things living, from gardens to critters.
Wifey and I are both two extremely driven women. We set our mind on a goal, and we make it happen. About 5 years ago we realized we had one more dream we needed to make a reality. That was how Indigo Acres was born. I closed the door on my 22 year career, in the world of education, to focus on the dream of building our small farm. Wifey continues to practice pediatric medicine, but equally loves her time on the farm.
Indigo Acres was established in 2014 and we have never looked back. We started with 2 horses, 2 goats and 12 chickens! 4 years later, we have grown to 1 horse (RIP sweet Velvet), 4 goats, 4 sheep,1 mini donkey, 7 barn cats, 1 Newfoundland, 31 ducks and over 100 chickens. And, we are welcoming quail this July!
I love every moment of my life, and I am filled with gratitude daily. Our motto here at Indigo Acres is, “Do What You Love…Love What You Do…” That about says it all!
Here are a few of our Indigo Acre family members…
And so many more!
