Hello everyone! I am attempting this blogging thing. I don’t know a whole lot about it but want to learn! 🙂 Oh, where to begin…..I’ll just start from the beginning and try to get caught up to the present time and go from there! 🙂
I grew up in a small town in south central Nebraska, population 750. It was a small farming community, but I grew up in town. The only experience that I had ON a farm was going out to my aunt and uncle’s when they were “working” calves. I would sit up on the fence and watch them brand the calves and turn bull calves into steers. Fun times!
After college, my first job was attending trade shows for a crop insurance company. I went all over the US to about 25-30 shows a year. It was a lot of fun and I got to meet a lot of great people. In March of 2006, I was at the Commodity Classic trade show in Anaheim, CA when I meet my husband. One year and 6 days later (5 days after returning from the 2007 Commodity Classic in Tampa, FL) we got married. I then moved from the city that I was living in, to a farm in southwest Iowa.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself a city girl, but I definitely wouldn’t say I was a farm/country girl either! 🙂 All I can say is that I had a lot of learning to do! There are many stories that I will tell you about in future posts, so stay tuned for more!
As of today, I have been living with my husband on our farm for 3 1/2 years and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
