farm life :: farm photography

isn't it funny how life turns out sometimes?

as a young adult working towards my masters degree in chicago i saw a future much different than what it is.  i imagined myself working in a big city, single... and maybe - just maybe - in my late 30's to early 40's, i would adopt a couple kiddos.

and now, here i am, doing pretty much the complete opposite.  my husband works in a big city 4 days out of the week and i hold things together on our farm.  i wake early to care for the chickens, water the gardens, then wake our two boys for a full day of summer fun while i'm off to work at the shop.

each day, as i go through these motions, i thank God that my life turned out this way.  how blessed i am to be close to my loving family for support, to have two energetic & hilariously funny kiddos, and to view this beautiful land each morning that we call home.

what surprising & amazing gifts i've been given.  xoxo.
