Its Been Awhile: A New Vision


Oh. Em. Gee. Has it been a minute since we posted a blog and I am SO incredibly sorry. Things have just gotten so crazy with the new baby, this COVID-19 mess, and life in general. We have basically been on lockdown since Wildbaby was born and while I am usually a homebody, this has been a bit too much even for me. Because of this nonsense, my poor mother in law didn’t get to meet the new baby until Mother’s Day when she was 2 months old! Can you imagine how much that must have sucked for her? Ugh, I feel terrible. We broke the “rules” for the visit to happen, but I am so glad we did.

However, all this forced down time has given me quite a bit of time to think. Mostly when both the kids are asleep and in the wee hours of the morning. I have been thinking a lot about my vision for this blog, for the business of The Wild Paduanos as a whole, and my goals in general.

As you can see, our blog has undergone a bit of a transformation. This is more encompassing of the overall vision that I have. We have added a shop page so that we can one day transition away from having our products solely on Etsy and one day expand into the greater plan that is brewing.

Right now I am in extreme brainstorming mode. I have notes all over the place at this point: my phone, my laptop, a bullet journal, and soon on our white board. I have to clean off the white board first because Wildchild drew all over it…and a bit on the wall underneath it. Kids lol. I’m basically trying to reverse engineer my way back from the ultimate goal I have to where we are currently at. It’s a bit of a process cause I am not currently sure what all the steps are. I will get us there eventually, so watch out world!

We’d love to hear from you, dear readers. Is there something you’d like to see featured on the blog or on social? A recipe, garden tour, etc? Let us know in the comments below and we will work on it for you!

Sorry for Disappearing

I am so sorry for disappearing, again. Things have been quiet on the blog for awhile now, despite my intentions otherwise. Adding Wildbaby into the mix has been a lot harder than I had imagined. She is such a velcro baby that it is hard to get much accomplished besides nursing and if I am lucky, a thirty minute workout.

Spike Down: Harvesting My First Deer

My second season started after my wife. She was able to go down before me with her dad. While she was there on her last night she tagged out. So not only did she tag out before me she also got a deer before me. She got a nice doe too. My first year I didn’t get to tag out despite seeing deer and releasing some arrows.
