20130809-070952.jpg Recent statistics show that just 1% of the U.S. population considers farming their primary occupation. Since John & I fall into that 1% group, I believe it is important to share about our work in food production. Since 100% of American’s eat, every Friday I write to those who may wonder: Where does my steak come from? What does a farm look like? Who are the farmers and ranchers? What do they do?

This week…

We took Schyler back home. We met my Dad in Lincoln!

20130809-071200.jpg It was really nice of Dad to meet us half way, but the 5 hour drive to Lincoln is still pretty tiring!

20130809-071256.jpgIt was a pretty quiet week here, except that our wedding photos came in the mail. I am excited to get a few printed.


20130809-071557.jpg I helped John move some cows this week to fresh pasture. He also had to chase down a bull that got out.

This week was Ron’s (my new father-in-law) birthday so we celebrated with steaks!

Other than that, I spent the week catching up from all the playing I did while Schyler was here!

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!
