As part of my series on getting to know me better (if you missed part 1, read it here), I want to tell you a little bit about my life and my family. I am a big city girl turned farmer's wife. Growing up I lived in a couple of different big cities.
We moved around a little bit but it was always to another big city. I never imagined that I would end up married to a farmer and living in a small town. Getting used to small-town life was a big adjustment. I am slowly but surely learning to adapt. Although, it is still hard to live 30 minutes away from the nearest Target and TJ Maxx - and I'm afraid that will never get easier.
It all started when I met my husband in college. We all hear about love at first sight and question if it is really true, but in our case that is kind of what happened. We got married in September of 2011 and moved to his home town of Leitchfield, KY (where he was born and raised). He has lived here his whole life and it is where he wanted to start his own family. Plus, it is where the family farm business is located and he wanted to continue to be a part of that. So, I found myself living in a new, small town and learning to adapt to a different pace of life.
After living in busy cities my whole life, the slow pace of a small town was drastically different, but in a way it was refreshing. I will be honest friends, it is not the life I imagined for myself. But how often do things work out exactly like we dreamed they would? I am a strong believer in the fact that everything happens for a reason and I know that God has His own plan for my life that is a thousand times better than anything I can ever imagine. When I look at my life now, I can't imagine living it with anyone else or anywhere else. It may not always be easy, but thats just the way life is.
Fast forward 3 years, and we have just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and will soon be celebrating our son's first birthday. I am blessed with an amazing husband who shows me so much love and an adorable little boy, Logan, who made me a mama. I spend my days now being a wife, mother, and business owner, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to do each one of those things with passion.
