- One of my biggest accomplishments was hiking 10 miles up to Harneys Peak in the Black Hills of South Dakota. I haven’t done an introduction in a while so I thought today I’ll share a little about me. I’m Aby; it’s my middle name (Abigail), my first name is Linda which I still introduce myself as when I meet people haha but Derek and my family call me Aby. My life in the smokies is literally a Dolly Parton song 😂 fun fact: My husband and I met online (bet ya didn’t know that one 😂 but I hear that’s the new norm) we’ve been married 5 years, we traveled for 2 1/2 yrs non stop from north to south and coast to coast (I wish I had IG back then) we decided to buy a log cabin in the Smoky Mountains which was where we honeymooned. My husband still travels for work ( he’s a travel welder) and we started to homestead this year on our acre. We have chickens + goats & are learning to be more self sufficient. We are also starting a small business through Airbnb, Derek built a Glamping tent site all by himself & I will be decorating the inside of the canvas tent. We have 3 boys, liam the oldest has left ear hearing loss which I forget often 😆 while Judah + Laec were diagnosed/born with a genetic mutation that causes #cysticfibrosis . We have learned so much over the years and we love bringing y’all along! We do a lot of local travel still and share lots about the smokies and why we love it here+our farm+DIY+ recipes+ our Canvas Tent ⛺️💕 thats just a little about me+us. Tell us a little about you, where you live!? And why you love it? Thanks for Following along on our little adventures as we also spread #cfawareness

- Seeing Hunter fall asleep in my arms on the plane had me wishing he would do this more❤ but it also made me realize that we are going to have ourselves a toddler soon and there is going to be a day when he will no longer do this ever! So for right now, even if it is only like once a month or once every couple months and even though I would much rather take a nap or get something done, I will be holding my son in my arms every chance he will let me and make sure he knows he is one of the best things that's happened to me🥰

- They thought they were headed for a mini vacation to see the Ark and Kentucky Kingdom, but I had a sudden last minute change of plans. Caden figured it out, but it wasn't until the car ride doubled in time and Cooper saw the Florida sign that he realized we're not in Kentucky 🤣 he said, "wait what, that sign said Florida! That's not right, we're in Kentucky!" Tricked ya!!! Although he told me mommies and daddies shouldn't trick their children because that's like lying and God doesn't like lying! Touché! He doesn't! But these kinds of surprises it's ok to tell a little white lie, right?!.

- I will forever be here to wipe your tears. 💗
We had Baby Rae’s 12 month doctor appointment today, and I swear she knows exactly what is going to happen every time we get there.
She really is the best baby, doesn’t really fuss or cry much, until we get in that room and she immediately gets cranky and fussy.
She was totally freaking out just when they were taking her measurements, and that wasn’t even the bad part! 😰
The doctors wanted to give her 6 shots this time around, and get blood work drawn. We opted to do delayed shots and only do half today, and are skipping the blood work and leaving that for another day. Good thing because she was in hysterics just getting her head measured. 🤦🏽♀️
But our little peanut has moved up on the growth chart and her head is still big as ever 😂 (I say it’s cause it has to carry around that big ol brain, she’s so smart!)
How do your little ones handle their doctors visits? We can’t be the only ones that has pandemonium set in the second we walk in the door.

This boy just turned 11 months yesterday and I'm just over here crying about how we are going to have a 1 year old in less than a month😭❤
- Oh what a happy happy Monday ☀️
- Forever mummys bestie! (Or so I thought)
So today I dropped noah off at school and most mornings he’ll give me and Thea a big kiss and cuddle before he goes in, today he had the most embarrassed look on his face the look of my mums going to kiss me in a public place he stood looking at me debating if he should run in or say good bye in this moment I felt like the most embarrassing mum ever so I stood and waved him good bye, today my first born grew up!
To cheer my self up I’ve been flicking through photos trying to work out when he got so grown up, throwback to Beckie and Jamie’s wedding weekend

- O N E week of pure bliss since this one filled every void of my heart I didn’t know I was missing. 💕
One exhausting, sore, messy, joyful, loving week. I’ve also taken some time away to just enjoy Ellie and my family. I haven’t missed the constant scrolling or wasted time, but I really do like being connected to my friends and family and seeing updates from you all... and I really do miss that! BUT, more then anything... I feel so lucky to be chosen to be this little squeakers Mama! What an amazing feeling 😍
On a total side note, I didn’t think I could be more in love with my husband! Seeing him become a Daddy has brought a side out in Ryan I knew was there, and have seen small glimpses when he’s with Linc... but Ellie has changed Ryan and my heart won’t stop swooning over it! I’m already seeing what a special bond they have and it melts me 😍
I haven’t even snapped many pics of our Ellie but I need to get on it! She’s already growing and changing so much... time needs to slow down!! 😩

- A question for you - what does birthday signify as per you? Each year on the date that you arrived, does that bring a reason for you to party hard or pushes you to have a moment of introspection ? To me birthdays are like the digital reminders reminiscent of how far along you have come and how little time is left ahead of us to achieve all that is important to us...
Each year on my birthday I try utmost to spend time and express my heartfelt for the beautiful wishes that pour from all over. Some that get me to roll over laughing or a heart-warming tearjerker, they all matter as I walk ahead in life with them.
A genuine birthday wish always makes your heart swell with joy because the hard work you had put in making relations, the wishes are evidence of those relationships that survived despite the hardships in the cheek of time and no matter how crumbling life gets for them ; they halt, turn around and take time out to wish you for you matter to them.....
To me a birthday is like another adventure filled year that awaits me. I always ensure and will never cease to welcome it by celebrating with pomp and splendor. After all, we all are a gift to earth in a unique way. I once read it somewhere and the phrase kind of stayed with me forever in my heart....
"Count not the candles…see the lights they give.
Count not the years, but the life you live" !!!
Forget about the past, you can’t change it. Forget about the future, you can’t predict it. But worry about the present 🎁 As that really matters, yes you read it right 😂; it's the present 😃☝️Let everyday be as unique as your birthday and make heads turn each day for you are worth it !! All the battles fought, some were won and some were lost but what matters is that you never gave up and let each day be a celebration of that spirit ❣️❣️❣️.
