Bee It Three To Make Me Happy

Rachael and I are just about as excited as two newbee's can bee. I got a message from a friend yesterday letting me know one of her clients is selling two complete hives from swarms he had gathered locally, for super cheap. Per his wife's order he needed to get rid of...

The Girls Were Ready For Their Close-up

I finally did it! I finally rented a macro lens to checkout! I waited for a weekend when my daughter would be home from school. She's a photography hobbyist as well and I wanted to get a second opinion. I'm normally a portrait photographer and she is more into still...

The Electric Side of Pollination

We all know that bees are just about the most important little critters on the planet and to me one of the most fascinating. It seems every day I learn something new and it blows my mind. Rachael posted on Instagram an incredible video of one of our lovely ladies...

Bees Aren’t The Only Things We’re Saving!

So, as you could tell from Katrina's last post, The Bee Lifeguard, I'm a bit of a bleeding heart when it comes to all living creatures. I can not just stand by and watch suffering, no matter how big or small. Boy, oh boy was I put to the test yesterday! I have agreed...

Bee The Lifeguard

I think I might have to cut Rachael off from her bee rescue efforts. I know, that sounds horrible. Both of our families are enjoying the wonderful lake together this week. We have found a few bees that were trying to drink from the lake, but instead went too far in...

Bee Water Stations

Not everyone can be a beekeeper, but anyone can help our wonderful little friends by putting a bee watering station in their yard. It is fun, easy, and pretty inexpensive. Bees get thirsty and need a safe place to drink. All you need is a shallow dish (A pie dish...

Honey-Roasted Carrots

A Beeutiful New Water Bottle

I received this cute little S'ip by S’well water bottle as a Mother’s Day gift from my son. I love that it has little honey bees on it. I try to use reusable water bottles whenever possible so this was a perfect gift for me. We are not paid to do reviews of products,...

The First Two Weeks

We have officially been beekeepers for 14 days! That sounds pretty awesome. So exactly when do we get to lose the title of newbies? 10 years? oh.... I am realizing there are a lot of similarities between new beekeepers and new parents. Before the bees arrived we...

Get In Your Home Little Bees!

So now that you have heard Rachael's take on pick-up day here is my side of the story. I had regrets as soon as we got in the car. I drove and Rachael began applying fresh lipstick and practiced her selfie poses. OH GOOD GOLLY! I barely brushed my hair. I frantically...

Baby Bees On Board! Pick-up Day Is Finally Here!

All the classes, planning, talking, worrying and preparation had lead to this day, Thursday May 12th 2016, the day we picked-up our bees. I was as giddy as a school girl all day. The bottled up excitement nearly lead me to tears more than once throughout the day. It...
