I’m the type of person who sometimes enjoys the parades of life more than checking pastures.

Do you know what I mean?

Parades are special and fun. There are only about one or two a year. 

I always cry when the American flags roll by and dance along a bit with the bands.

But, checking pastures is an all summer on-going event. It feels a bit more mundane.

Yet, getting to a parade requires planning and parking and coordinating and snacks and toys and a stroller and a camera, too.


But, checking pastures is impromtu and easy. There’s no diaper bag and no snacks, sometimes we just load up and go.

But, both are good. 

And, this Saturday we squeezed in both the normal and the extra special.

It made for a good day. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

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!
