- They always say you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl. That's me,and now that I am back in the country I couldn't be happier! Thanks to God, we were able to move on to a 40 acre farm. Life on the farm is busy and we are always learning something new. My husband, Brett is the worlds best handyman. He was raised in town but I think that deep down he has always been a country boy. Together we are learning to raise cattle,chickens, and are even venturing into raising goats.We enjoy gardening and we are learning square foot gardening with the help of our mothers. We are striving towards self-sufficient living and hope to be there soon. Along with a passion for the outdoors and animals I also have a passion for photography. I have owned my photography business for about 13 years now. Nothing gives me more pleasure then to photograph a new baby or a couple getting married and beginning a new life together. I hope that you will join us as we learn new things and enjoy life on the farm.

Well our little girl Jessica did it, she graduated on May 18th. Her plans for college is to go to Cowley County Community College in Arkansas City, Kansas, the same college that I graduated from! I can't believe that the time has come for her to leave us. I know she is just going 30 miles away but it seems like 100 miles to me. There are so many things that you try to install in your children as you raise them, good morals, high standards, and a love for God. In the end it is up to them and you just pray that they remember everything that you have taught them.
I am so proud of Jessica, she has kept her standards high and she is a very loving, caring person. I am proud to call her my daughter. I will miss her so much when she goes away to college in the fall and it is going to seem strange to not have her at the house any longer. And of course I will miss her help! She has always been a big help around the house even if it did take a little or a lot of persuading. In the end she always came through and has made my life much easier. Now that she will be gone we won't have that person there telling us to pick up after ourselves and I can't imagine what the house is going to look like now. Guess that just means that she will have to come home on the weekends to make sure that things aren't getting too bad.
Jessica, from your dad and I both, we love you and are soooooo proud of you. Don't ever change who you are and continue to hold your self high. Don't forget God, and remember to keep him close to you. May you always have that shining smile on your face and may life be everything that you want and more. Don't forget us either! Love Mom and Dad
