You know that saying, about how things tend to come in 3’s? Yep! It’s true! This would fall in at #2 , and I think it’s just about Perfect Timing. The sun’s shining and warm(er) weather is on the way!! “Lovers Leap” by Paul Sawyier is framed and ready to head home. I’m so pleased with how this turned out! We chose a traditional, ornate gold frame for this design. But! We paired it with a light and bright transitional mat design. The soft white mat is used on the top, and bottom mat, giving this scene permission to truly shine in its expansive, distant vista, while that little pop of a soft gray-blue, in between, gives your eye a subtle direction back into the scene. Traditionally you would have seen this matted in green. (Which is why, by the way, Sawyier prints ‘seem’ so dated.). This combination of design styles creates a much more ‘timeless design’, which I truly love. That impressive, heavy gold frame pairs oh so nicely with its younger counterpart. #fayettegallery #customframinglexingtonky #paulsawyier #paulsawyierart #localkentuckyartist #loversleap #loversleaptrail #viewfromloversleap #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #kentuckyartist #kentucky #kentuckylife #kentuckyvistas #kentuckyviews #homedecor #customframing #customframingtips #designtips

...this last week has really been a struggle. I love sharing our experiences through social media but often hide some of the more difficult or ugly ones. I romanticize nearly every idea or goal we have and when it doesn't quite reach what I had in mind or the timeline I projected, I interpret that as failure. So this week when we were waking up at 3 AM to keep the wood stove going against the freezing weather, or when I caught a shrew in our kitchen (A SHREW!? Look it up...) just to find that we had mice as well, and then literally lighting my hair on fire with one of the candles that was supposed to calm me, the homesickness was fierce. Meanwhile, Nathan was working round the clock to welcome these giant hay rolls and 20 PREGNANT cows to the farm. All expecting their babies in the spring (I'll be sharing more about this soon)! I'm trying to sort it all out in my mind...to adapt to this lifestyle, and learn to protect and nurture our new investment in these animal's lives, and most of all to find comfort in each other. I'm praying to be more mindful in my expectations and reactions. And to borrow some of Nathan's gracefulness, too. . . . #bainumlane #bainumherd
Today’s road trip brought me home. It was a gorgeous drive for sure. I wish I could have gone to Brooklyn, but I knew the #bombcyclone was going to fuck up the beginning of my semester so I had to cancel and head home. #roadtrip #startingtheyearoffright #kentuckyviews #roadlife #four
I will never grow tired of the beauty of a setting sun. #novembersky #kentuckyviews #sunsets #thankful
Day 4: nature I began to appreciate sunrises (and sunsets) more after surviving a near fatal wreck years ago. It was the symbol of a gift of each new day. But after losing my son in the same tree line that used to bring me such hope, that view was threatened. How could I ever look at them the same? Yet, it was nature that has helped me survive childloss. Seeing the beauty of God's landscapes lets me imagine the astounding creation my son lives in for eternity. And where I'll join him someday. So for now, I'll pause at beauty of a sunset and gives thanks for another day on this earth. I'll breathe in peace at the changing seasons or the way light stretches and highlights the land. I'll find calm on the water. And I'll live my days in gratitude for the 14 years we were blessed to have Austin with us. #justbreathegratitude #rememberingAustin #30daysofgratitude #nature #landscapes #kentuckyviews #sunsets #findingjoy
Happy Sunday Bookstagram! Here are a couple of ghost stories complications we picked up on our trip yesterday...you can scroll to see more pics for our trip if you want. We took a ride on scenic, open-air train, and visited an old coal temple. It was a beautiful Fall day! AND there was a tiny (closet sized) bookstore there! So naturally....#bookhaul #kentuckyviews

Hay bales make me happy. #kentuckyviews #falldays #countryside #haybales
The marigolds and okra need another cut, about 20 hours worth of weed-eating needs to be done, lots of things to process.. but mid week exhaustion is setting in and it's not even noon and I need a nap. Patiently anticipating the end of Market season on the farm so we can move forward on some big projects! 🌼 . . . #localcolordyegarden #localcolorclothing #jenningshollowfarm #homegrowndye #medicinalthreads #livingcolor #wildcolor #naturaldye #smallfarm #smallbusiness #shopsmall #marigolddye #kentuckyviews #kyproud

When Harvey makes his way to Louisville.
Just another summer night in Kentucky. #KentuckyViews #kentuckyproud #nofilter
Mundfordville, KY. 99% Totality. We decided at 10pm Sunday night we were going to drive as far south as we could get to watch this eclipse, we originally planned for Nashville, TN but we are happy we made it as far as we did and experience a 99% eclipse. It got dark, and eerie feeling and aboout 9° colder for that brief amount of time it eclipsed. Lasted about 2 minutes in totality. Grateful for @noblecory and our experiences together. 💚 #solareclipse #solareclipse2017 #kentuckyviews #totality2017 #totality #goodvibes #hightimes
Gotta love the views you get when you explore a new trail! This is from sunday when I was dead exhausted from barely any sleep the night before and work, but decided to go on a 6 mile run out at Skullbuster MTB trail out in Stamping Ground anyways. Always listen to your body and don't be like me! 😂😂 • • • • • #runner #runnerforlife #crosscountry #halfmarathontraining #training #trailrunning #skullbuster #explorekentucky #kentuckyviews #dedication #hillsfordays #almostgotlost #killerraccoons #sunset
