Welcome to the Official I Live on a Farm Website Happy Holidays

Welcome to I Live on a Farm
"I lived in Los Angeles most of my life. LA is hot and cranky with too many people and too much summer. In late January of this year I met a man online. By the end of April we said I do at a drive-up wedding chapel window in Vegas. Now I live on a farm in upstate western New York. I live on a farm and my husband drives a tractor.

"How weird is this?" ~ firefly

And that's how it all began. In early August of 2006, just a few months after getting married and moving to New York, I started writing a blog about my life on the farm including content related to knitting in particular and other topics such as cooking, relationships, love, photography ... and faith. I'm known now as "firefly", and I drive a tractor too.

The blog has done well enough that I have decided to expand to an online magazine called "Scrumptious Living". The idea is that Scrumptious Living will feature the original and continuing blog, I Live on a Farm, but with added content and some relevant advertising.

I will continue to develop and publish free knitting patterns and recipes. Additionally my mother will be posting a journal about her childhood growing up on a farm in North Carolina. Other departments will be added as they are developed.

I hope you enjoy the website. Please note that advertising has been added in order to make it possible for me to continue devoting the time necessary to bring you a quality blog and free knitting patterns. I will always try to ensure the advertising is relevant to the interests of my readers. Comments and feedback are always welcome!

Have a beautiful day ... as always, I wish you and yours well.
