This is a blog post I've been sitting on for over a year since I wrote it. What came about because of a class assignment just showed me so much more about my Gee Gee. I never really knew when I wanted to share this or how to go about it, but I think now … Continue reading Behind Every Farmer is a Strong Woman
So yesterday, November 6th, instead of being in my photography class or working my normal evening shift I was about 300 miles north of Springfield MO and good old Mo State in Ames, Iowa.

Well, I guess I'm still not 100% sure where I want to take this blog, personal, advice, comedic relief, or some deep philosophical ideas, I am one hundred thousand percent sure it will have an agriculture emphasis
Now if you were to ask any writer, in any medium, I bet you they would all say that the first work that they know will be published and put out there for the entire world to view is a pretty daunting and intimidating one to try and sit down and write. For me, this … Continue reading The Daunting First Post
