Welcome to my NEW blog called Farmer’s Wife & Heels!
I thought it was an appropriate name for a GIRL BOSS that grew up a “Farmers Daughter” & now a “Farmer’s Wife”.
I’m not your typical “Farmers Wife”.
No, I don’t live on a farm I live in the city
No, I don’t milk the cows or feed the chickens
No, I don’t cook much from the farm (my hubby is the cook lucky me!)
However, I learned a lot from growing up being a Farmer’s Daughter & Farmers Wife! Here are just a few things I have learned.
You learn strong work ethic when you watch your Grandfather & Dad start work at 5am and finish when the job is done. I learned you work when you can so when you can’t work, it works for you. To make extra money I worked at the strawberry U-pick fields especially during busy season. I learned how to deal with customers, people skills, the cash register, & about produce.
I learned to work hard and play harder! I saw my dad work hard all year then the months he was off (because our farm is seasonal) we would go on lavish trips. But during the farming season we were all in for the farm. No travel!
Save for a rainy day!
There are some good years and bad years in farming and in life. You can’t spend all you have made and not prepare for the future.
Live below your means!
Pivot… There are some years you have to learn to pivot, move on, work a different way, change directions. You could have bad weather, terrible market, bad crops…just obstacle. Anything that pulls you in another direction or away from your passion.
I do love wearing denim! If you let me pick my favorite outfit it would be denim distressed rip jeans, a white t-shirt & cute shoes.
Overalls…hmmm…maybe sometimes, but more DENIM!
On The Flip Side…
On the other side you don’t get much girlier than me!
