We have had more snow this year than we have had in quite a few years. While snow always makes farm life more difficult, it sure adds beauty to a gray winter.
I always love snow pictures...but I never have many because it is just too darn cold to go outside for a photo shoot.
I have braved the cold a few times for some very short photo opportunities...but it only takes a few minutes for my fingers to go numb and then I can't even use my camera.
I sound like a wussy city girl.
I did grow up in the city...
But I have had my fair share of cold days...so I say I have earned my time in the nice warm house.
I vividly remember the winter of 40 below wind chills and trying to deliver my paper route without getting frost bite.
I wish I knew about Carhartt's way back then...but that is the city in me.
Now I am a smart country girl.
When I have to go outside, I have all the Carhartt's, coveralls and insulated Muck boots to keep me warm.
I have a Val-6 heater that I park myself in front of...without shame.
But most importantly...
I just stay inside where it is nice and warm.
But, as you can see...I did venture out a few times.
And I am glad I did.

Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
