Happy Anniversary (to me): Celebrating Three Years of Sharing my Ag Story Online

January 20, 2017 I was sitting by the pool sipping my fruity adult beverage in Cabo nearing the end of my honeymoon. I spent two glorious weeks with my hubby soaking up all the tacos, tequila, and sunshine I could stand. Part of me wanted to stay forever and the other part of me was [...]

Peace out, 2018!

It's our second wedding anniversary today! I can't believe it has already been two years of marriage to my Farmer. I look at these two pictures and just have a good belly laugh. So much has changed in the last two years for me. I went from a full-time desk job to running tractors and [...]
