I graduated from Missouri State in 2008 with a Bachelor’s in Finance. That was probably the worst year for a future bank vice-president to graduate. The economy tanked and a finance major was someone no one wanted (at least not around these parts). So, long story very short, I ended up here, the only other conceivable thing to do, right? And I actually love it! (Most of the time. Maybe we’ll save what I don’t love (chickens, more specifically, roosters) for another time. I look at farm life as an adventure or my own personal movie where I can work, learn, and make fun of myself along the way. And, seriously, I work. I work like I’ve never worked before (if given enough Redbull) and it’s surprisingly extremely rewarding. I don’t even mind picking rocks and insist that adults and small children do it with me. (Funny how people keep their distance.)
I also take care of Peanut.
This is our daughter. She teaches me a myriad of new things everyday. How can a baby teach an adult anything?, you ask. Just ask a mother. She knows.
Currently, the farmer and I are living like gypsies between our home in the city and the upstairs of the dairy barn. We’re trying to remedy that, though, which brings me to the next journey I will undertake: building a house. Will I survive it? We can’t know. But, I do know that I’m soooo looking forward to it and will be asking you all for your design opinions from time to time.
Until then, I’ll be here speaking random Spanish to my family and our animals while counseling the cows on my stock picks for the year. Trust me, they hang on my every word.
P.S. Thanks reading and telling me what you think! It’s very sweet and I’m having a lot of fun with it!
