5 day trip to MO & a new column in The Centralia Guard

Time to head back to South Dakota. It was a very good five day trip to my hometown and back again.

In five days, I squeezed in…

A night out with the girls!

An afternoon with my best friend!
My cousin’s wedding and reception!

A day at the Anchor Festival with sisters and more cousins!

A meeting with our wedding photographers, to nail down the schedule for the big day!

Dropping Seleste off at camp, eating in Jefferson City, enjoying a state park and time with two more cousins!








It was a wonderful trip and I am very thankful for the chance to attend the wedding, see so many cousins on both sides and four high school girlfriends! Lots of laughing and catching up!

While on the subject of my hometown, I am going to be writing a column in the local paper once each month. The first one printed a couple weeks ago. I am squeezed in next to the crossword, but at least it is in!

Thanks for reading!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
