Thank you all for your patience, I apologize for being absent for such a long stretch of time. Many things were going on here.
I spent 2 weeks in Utah visiting my son and his wife. Great visit!! Then shortly after we returned home they came to spend a week with us and were joined by my other son and his fiance for the week. Then tragically, my beautiful mother went to live in Heaven during that duration of time. I would like to dedicate this blog post to her. She was my inspiration to the many things that I have done in my life. She fed my creative inspirations, but she also taught me how to be frugal, use what I have, and to use the things that were put on this earth by God. I like to think that my soaps and lotions made from my fresh, raw goat milks and natural ingredients fit right into that category! She loved the farm life, along with the gardens. She milked her little goat until she got weak enough that she couldn't walk out to the barn anymore. She was indeed, the hardest working, deepest loving woman I will ever know and if I can live up to half of her, I will be proud.
Now, to help celebrate the fall season coming up, the start of a new school year, and the beautiful feelings when the wind starts to cool off and feel so clean and crisp, I am going to start another contest this month. So keep an eye on my website at www.cooperridgecountrystore.com, and also on my FACEBOOK page, to get in on the fun!!!
