About Us


We are the Cotten Patch!

I’m Carrie, Jesus loving, kid wrangling, home managing, and self appointed Mayor of my crazy town crew.  My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for almost 18 years and have 4 beautiful cherubs ranging from 14 to 2 years of age.

We met in college, spent our first year of marriage in Alaska (I know, right!!) and now we live in Texas!  We have survived a tour in the army, owned a petting zoo/pony ride business, handyman business, a photography business, and are both certified teachers. So, you can imagine we have learned a LOT of lessons along the way and have quite a lot of stories to tell.

Now I’m living the dream as a stay at home mom/maid/blogger/toddler watcher.   We are recent East Texans and have also decided we would like to take up small scale farming and backyard chicken…ing.

Although I’ll be 40 soon, I’m still not sure what I want to be when I grow up.  But I love to write, read, take beautiful pictures, and I absolutely positively adore being a mom.

So, my little blog is about the things I love most – faith, family, farming, and fun!   Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something interesting!
