Favorite quote is todayโ€™s topic for #thecluckerbehindthecoop photo challenge Iโ€™m cohosting with @smallfarmcharm and @notaredroy. Itโ€™s not really a quote and not to get too serious here *but Iโ€™m gonna* ๐Ÿ˜‚ the chorus of the song Imagine by John Lennon really speaks to me, and I often get a bit teary eyed when I hear it and I think of how much hate, prejudice and judgemental behavior there is in the U.S. these days. I donโ€™t understand how things got so out of control and how we get back to being a country that Iโ€™m proud to live in. Is it so hard to be kind and respectful to others regardless of whether we have the same belief system or not? Is it so hard to live and let live, to not insist that everything is black and white and that anyone who doesnโ€™t share oneโ€™s beliefs or fit the mold is wrong and should be scorned, insulted or worse? Itโ€™s up to us to refuse to give in to the negativity and intolerance no matter how much of it we are constantly bombarded with from all sides. Itโ€™s difficult not to get angry and point the blame at others sometimes, Iโ€™ve felt those feelings rise up in me at times, butโ€™s thatโ€™s not the person that I want to be. Itโ€™s counterproductive to let those feelings get the better of you. I donโ€™t know where Iโ€™m going with this other than to say, try not to give in to hate or anger, be kind, be respectful, and lead by example, if we do, maybe others will follow. ๐Ÿ’• Sorry to get so serious ๐Ÿ˜‰, and always remember Peace, Love, and Chickens โ˜ฎ๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”

Love is...Iโ€™ve been thinking about this a lot. Itโ€™s todayโ€™s topic for #thecluckerbehindthecoop photo challenge Iโ€™m cohosting with @smallfarmcharm and @notaredroy. To me love is compromise. Okay maybe thatโ€™s not the most romantic way to look at it, but I think itโ€™s one of the keys to successful relationships as well as being happy. I met my husband 33 years ago when I was almost 16. We were totally different people at that time, yet weโ€™re still together and Iโ€™d say we are happier than weโ€™ve ever been. ๐Ÿ’• Does he love the chaos that comes with almost 50 chickens and turkeys one of which *ahem* Ringo ๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ˜ˆ who constantly tries to attack him while heโ€™s doing a project for me in the turkey yard? Probably not. Do I love the 20 foot container in the driveway whose sole purpose is to house an antique car that he barely uses? No. But we love each other, and so we compromise. So to me this photo represents the love my husband shows me by valuing my love for these troublemakers right here ๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Š and doing pretty much whatever project I ask him to do to keep the farm running smoothly. In return I try to be as understanding as I can be when it comes to things that are important to him or that he enjoys that I donโ€™t necessarily get *video games, zombie shows* ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thereโ€™s more to it than that of course, but I think that compromise is always a good place to start. โค๏ธ

Some days I love my time in the garden, you know those days that you feel super productive when youโ€™re checking things off the to do list. โœ…๐Ÿ“ And then there are days when I have the best intentions of getting a bunch of things done but I. Just. Canโ€™t. ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ‘Ž For whatever reason itโ€™s just not happening, either Iโ€™m distracted by too many other things, or I realize I donโ€™t have the strength or the energy to tackle what I had intended and I get overwhelmed and decide to go hang out with the chickens instead. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And thatโ€™s okay too. We all have those days that we feel disappointed or discouraged, but it doesnโ€™t mean youโ€™re not still a rockstar! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿค˜Sharing for #thecluckerbehindthecoop photo challenge Iโ€™m hosting with @smallfarmcharm and @notaredroy for the topics because I can / because I canโ€™t.

Since moving to the farm several years ago, I donโ€™t get out much anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚ but hereโ€™s a recent pic of me and the hubs on a recent trip to a friendโ€™s outdoor wedding. Sharing for โ€œfamilyโ€ and โ€œif I could go anywhereโ€ for the photo challenge Iโ€™m hosting with @notaredroy and @smallfarmcharm. My family is me and this guy right here, I jokingly call him my Dream Enabler, but itโ€™s true. When I said letโ€™s buy a weekend place in the country he said yes, when I said letโ€™s move to our weekend place full time he said yes, when I said I want to quit my corporate job in the city because itโ€™s making me miserable and start my own business he said hell yes, you can do it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Heโ€™s pretty awesome alright, and Iโ€™m so glad heโ€™s my family. We are childless by choice (except for the feathered kids of course) but I have huge respect for you farm and homestead moms out there, I donโ€™t know how you manage to do it all! As for if I could go anywhere, Iโ€™d honestly rather stay right here most of the time. In the early years of our marriage we traveled quite a bit - Iโ€™ve been to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Paris, Italy, Germany, Holland, Prague, England, Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico, and Canada. I know some people look forward to long vacations every year, but since I feel like my life is a vacation in a sense, working for myself from home with a flexible schedule and a good balance of work and play, I feel pretty darn fortunate to be living this life and I really donโ€™t need or want a vacation 99% of the time! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’‘๐Ÿ’• If you would like to join us for the #thecluckerbehindthecoop photo challenge weโ€™d love to have you share whatever you feel comfortable with.
