Brilliant. In the words of this song, you have taken us back to what really matters, what is really important in life . . .

Great photos and music.

The mules were my favorite. They have more sense than horses.

This Michigan family has "gone back" - not Amish, but living on an old Amish homestead - no power, horse farming, etc. Even some neat videos of harvesting ice! Check them out...

Okay, this is OT to this particular post, but I wanted to post this - "Extreme Shepherding". Sheep, border collies, LED lighting and the 1812 Overture on a hillside at night. Never seen anything like it. http://youtu.be/D2FX9rviEhw

Nice song - the round bales seemed strikingly out of place in this piece.

Yes—CJ you’re very observant!

Pretty good desires—simplicity, etc…. Thanks for sharing.

"Times were hard but we didn't know it."

My sisters and I just had a discussion about this. My father worked in construction and was out of work alot during the winter. We didn't know at the time that they took a loan out every year at Christmas so that we could have everything our hearts desired. My parents were broke, but we had no clue of their sacrifice for us. As it turns out, most of our neighbors were in the same boat. We had everything we needed, just not anything extra. We couldn't have been happier.

Great song!

A most excellent song. Thanks for sharing it. I too would be interested in who sang it. Merry Christmas, Jenna!

Beautiful! And this must be the same Julie Miller that sings an old favorite, "Naked Heart". Pretty sure it's her because I think she was with a Buddy. Good stuff!
