Blackberry stained lips, squishy baby thighs, and the bond that Joel, Joye, and their 6 beautiful children share are just a few of my favorite things about the Dicharry home. Thad, Astair, Boston, Legend, Story, & Ivy– all created in God’s image– talented and special in their own ways. It’s so heartwarming to see them all together laughing, playing, and picking veggies out of the garden. Being able to document a summer afternoon with this family has been so inspiring.
A word from Joye:
It had been buried somewhere deep in our hearts, this dream of living on enough acres to grow kids, good food, and homespun memories. And when God opened doors we thought would never budge and led us to this very spot–a little cabin on a couple wooded acres–we were amazed at just how well He knew us. We went right to work building the life we had only dreamed of: learning how to raise chickens, work the soil, plant in season. And just like everything in life–you get what you put into it. And if you invest in faith, in family, in friends, in dreaming big and living those dreams out moment by moment– one day you’ll look back and realize your life was even better than you dreamed it could be.
