Where I'm From

Earlier this month, I had a rare opportunity to spend a week back at home in Illinois....the heartland. It was such a good trip and probably more than anytime in my life, I had such an appreciation for where I come from. My Dad farms and is one of the hardest working people I've ever known in my life. We all provide for our families in good, honorable ways, but there is so much a child learns from watching their parents work the land with hard, physical labor. I learned an intense work ethic, good morals, and the importance of family growing up here. Dad, I'm so proud of you and I'm so unbelievably thankful for the life you and Mom gave to us. Love you guys!!

The great Mississippi River

We went out to visit Dad while he was in the field and snapped a few shots of Lola and Mama.

And, well, not sure how this one fits in other than the fact that it was taken in Illinois. It's special enough it deserves its own space....

I love the pictures from home! Where are they picking? I can't quite put my finger on it. Grandma looks really good in the pictures. I would love a copy of the one of her in the kitchen...definitely her natural place. And I am way jealous that you got apple crisp!!!
