Est. 2013 | South Dakota
My life on a farm in South Dakota.
Mostly making & cleaning up messes, reading too many books at once, drinking coffee with my cat, or renovating.
We are slowly & steadily renovating our home & farm in rural South Dakota. This is our third home and second remodel in the past ten years. Our first renovation was the Blachford Family Farmhouse and we still use that small house today for playtime at the main farm.
Before we had kids, I spent my spare time sewing and quilting. Occasionally, in the middle of mothering I make my way back into sewing or stitching hobbies it’s a wonderful creative outlet.
Back in high school, I fell in love with listening to music and continue to love it to this day. Finding and sharing a new song or creating a playlist is a simple joy for me that is fun to share with you online.
Yes, I’m just another mom on the internet occasionally taking mediocre selfies of her outfits. So basic, I KNOW. And, yet, I still need to get dressed in the morning. Why not enjoy it a little bit? Even though it’s 100% outside of my comfort zone, I am enjoying leaning into learning more about personal style.
I write about stories I’m reading, listening to, and watching. Additionally, I enjoy sharing what I’m finding for our kids to read, listen to and watch. It’s so important to “fill the well” so we can continue to be resilient, inspired and creative people!
We have a handful of sheep at the Peacock Ranch and two adorable rabbits. I enjoy caring for them and I can’t wait to see where this project goes in the next few years.
Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here.
Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.
I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.
I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.
I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.
Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!

Thanks for stopping by my online home.
It’s wild, windy and beautiful here on the prairie for spring, summer, and fall.
During the winter, it’s hard and harsh at times, too.
The seasons truly shape our lives and direct the days on the farm. I love to share pictures of the prairie all year long.
Every picture I snap and post I make with earth and sky becomes a tiny reminder to me that a spacious, simple life is still possible in a stressed-out world.
Hang in there!
