Valley Home News

How beautiful spring is in Valley Home! The sight of livestock grazing peacefully in lush green pastures, lovely white/pink almond blossoms as far as you can see, watching ever changing clouds as they float gently across a brilliant blue sky, hearing a mourning dove coo sweetly in a barn loft, we could go on and on. Such a special place, we are truly blessed to wake up in Valley Home each morning!

I did purchase a double rod stamp which added $14 to the cost. As much as I wanted to say no to the purchase of a double rod stamp, I knew that if I passed on it, there would be a time when I wished I would have purchased it.
