Welcome to The Shady Acre!
My name is Natalie Lacy Lange. I live in the small town of Brenham, Texas, with my husband of thirteen years and our two sons. We like to pretend we are in the country, but our 1870s farm-style house sits on an acre of land just a few blocks from our quaint downtown. We bought the place (mainly because of the yard) and gutted it in 2004, and we’ve been slowly renovating it and landscaping ever since.
I started this blog in 2007 as a way to document our home and garden projects. (In 2010, I transitioned to WordPress, so all previous archives are here.) These days, our time is spent less on projects in the house and more on raising our boys. My goal is just to document our little life together.
Thanks for visiting! I would love to hear from you. Please email me at natalie@theshadyacre(dot)com.
