A love story

Farming is loving something so much it pains you. It is risking everything, loosing it and feeling blessed. Farming is my passion.

I know this for certain. I can think of nothing that I have ever done that has made me so happy. And yet I am a farmer with no farm.

It has been a year, a whole year since we left everything. I can honestly say not a day goes by that I do not think about our farm.

My heart breaks thinking of the animals we will never see again. Tears well looking back at the pictures.

We are farmers without a farm but one day, one day soon, we will have our own place. And although nothing will be able to replace the love lost, we hope to find new love.

 If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don't, they never were. Khalil Gibran

Cheers to a happy and healthy new year~

I can't believe it's been a year. I am hoping 2012 will bring you to a new farm and new animals to love. I always think it amazing when someone finds what they truly love to do in life. I'm still on that journey but am finally able to focus more time and energy on my loves.
