November 2011 on the farm

Time is flying by over here in our little quiet corner of Connecticut.  Our farm is growing, our store is growing, our lives are growing.  It amazes me as I write this how much our lives have changed the past few years.  Noone who has known me over the years would expect that I'd spend this morning feeding farm animals, mucking stalls, collecting eggs, and opening the doors of our own store - especially me.  And it is all done with a smile on my face because those are the moments, the times when I am so comfortable with where I am and what I am doing.  I am so blessed to have a partner that wants to share this crazy adventure with me.  A partner willing to work hard, embrace the conservative living, skip the Dunkin Donuts (most days), and live a life the is so full we could never be considered 'poor'.  This is the life.  Be well.

  1. What a beautifully written blogpost... I am proud and blessed to have you as my wife! The fact that you get more enjoyment driving the tractor on the farm, than driving a mercedes to the mall just proves that we are soulmates. I too have embraced this new life... never thought I'd be so excited about our "new" 100 year old antique wood cook stove!
