The Roots of my life go back as far as my Great Grandfather.  Gardening is a gene that has been passed down in my family from generation to generation.  It serves as a metaphor for life.  Deep strong roots keep you firmly grounded in tradition, passion and happiness!

For years, I have served as a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In 2020,  I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our society. I founded A farm girls life! with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and it has been a wild success ever since.

So hey there my friend's and family! Thirty six years ago today, my husband and I stood up in front of a church full of people and said "I do". I wore my Mother's wedding dress. It was a beautiful vintage ivory shade. Tom was very tall and skinny back then. He wore a tux with tails and he had a beard. He looked a little like Abraham Lincoln! Ha, ha! We were both much thinner.

The 4th was on a Saturday! A very cold Saturday in January! All our friend's and family were there and it was a beautiful candle lit wedding! Our only regret was not having enough time to spend with friends and family!

( Tom wanted Red Roses, the florist could only spare 2) So how are we celebrating today? Well Tom did bring me flowers! Flowers are my passion so he couldn't go wrong there. He brought me a cake 🍩 donut with chocolate frosting. It was yummy! He also brought a chocolate cake, for later! Chocolate is also one of my passions so again he couldn't go wrong!

I spent the day watching Jaylyn. Playing bus driver and picking Miah up from preschool. Then just babysitting for the rest of the day. My sweet little Jeremiah has become willfull and defiant and my little JJ just wanted my constant attention. She was my insomniac baby again! Does anyone else have a 6 month old baby who only takes 10 minute power naps!?

Tom and I got to go out to eat by ourselves! Sam and Gus watched the boys for us. They watched them at our house, so by the time we got home they were fed in their Jammy's and sound asleep 😴 💤! Yeah! So there is not much to do in Nevada MO on a Tuesday evening in January. We ended up going to Walmart to walk off our meal. Yes we are really responsible people and sometimes not too exciting. We bought baby formula, Rice cereal, a case for a tablet so when the boys play on it (if, I mean when they drop it) maybe it will survive. That was it oh and chicken broth to cook with. I use it as a base for soups and stews.

( I caught Fluffy posing at the front door when we got home) Then we came home. Tom went up to check on the boys. I went to the CD player to find a special song. It's the piano version of the theme from, "Ice Castles", called "Through The Eyes of Love". My sisters sang it at our wedding! So when Tom came downstairs we slow danced in our kitchen! You know part of our day was pretty mundane. We got back into our school routine after the holiday. I watched the Grandkids and Tom took care of the farm. But for a couple who couldn't have children. I look at my day and I don't see mundane. I see a miracle!

( Sunset on the farm) Hope you all had an awesome Tuesday! I sure did! Talk to you later! FG Farm Girl
