Love Story & Marriage Wedding

The Newlywed Game

It seems like lately in my social media feeds I’ve been seeing several bloggers who have posted a kind of newlywed game. I figured since I am indeed a newlywed, this may be fun to feature on my own blog. Rarely do I feature my dear husband on here. He’s not much of a writer and video cameras make him nervous. Luckily, he agreed to sit down with me and let me ask him some questions. These were perfect for…

How a California Girl Ended up in North Dakota..

If you would have told me two years ago that I would be living in North Dakota and married to a farmer, I would have laughed in your face. But here I am and I still cannot believe it. Many of you watched the whole thing unfold via social media, but for those of you who are new, I figured I’d chronicle my life in the last two years. How my whole world changed and how I ended up going…

10 Ways Marrying a Farmer Will Change Your Life…

When I fell in love with my (NOW) husband, I never imagined what our life would look like on a day to day basis. I had an idea it would be hard, I’d be spending a lot of time alone, and that it was bound to be unpredictable. Being married is a feat in and of itself, being married to a farmer adds a whole other layer.  There is no denying the fact that our relationship is an adventure. Just…

Where to Find Sunflowers

It’s officially my favorite time of the year…. the sunflowers are blooming!! If you’ve never experienced a field of sunflowers, let me tell you, do it. It is worth it. There is something truly magical about coming across a field of blooming yellow sunflowers as far as the eye can see. And North Dakota is a great place to travel to and find some sunflowers to enjoy. Although Kansas is known as the Sunflower State, it really should be North…

North Dakota Crop Report in Polaroids

This last week, it was raining off and on. The sky was a beautiful mixture of sunshine and clouds and just got even more gorgeous as the sun continued to sink down in the sky. Armed with my Polaroids, I hopped in the pickup with my farmer to check crops. I love shooting with my Polaroids. It’s unexpected, it’s something different every time. It’s perfectly imperfect. And for the first time since the crops were just out of the ground,…

What Type of Equipment Do Farmers Use to Plant?

Did you know that two different pieces of equipment are needed for us to get all of our planting done? Choosing the right piece of equipment for any given farming job is not always easy. Soybean, small grains (like wheat), and corn growers can share many different pieces of equipment. For example, last year during harvest I explained about how we use a combine (or harvester) to get the job done. And no matter what crop you are harvesting, the…

Some Days It’s Okay To Cry…

And it’s not because someone you know is sick or maybe someone you love has hurt you.. It’s not because you’re suffering the loss of a life or even a pet. It’s for things that are deep down inside of you.. Things that nobody else knows but you. Things that if you shared them with other people they would make you feel exposed, naked, and vulnerable. Those feelings deep inside of you that make you feel weak.  Some days it…
