After nearly 15 years of marriage Valentine’s Day isn’t about a dozen roses or diamonds, it’s about having each other’s backs no matter what and believing in each other.

It’s about encouraging texts throughout the work day.

It’s about helping each other chase a hog around your farm in a snowstorm.

It’s about him being just as excited as you are to get the mail.

It’s about hauling hogs to the locker in a blizzard that you have worked hard to raise as a team.

It’s about stopping to eat supper at a small bar, rather than a fancy restaurant.

It’s about your partner not caring if his wife is wearing Carhartt bibs on Valentines night!

It’s about being partners in love, life, and the long haul. In sickness of Crohn’s disease and health, in the good years and the bad, it’s about teamwork and tackling all challenges as a team! ❤️

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! How did you spend yours?

From the gravel road,

Ok, maybe that is an exaggeration. It doesn't feel far off, though!

We had a pretty exciting snow day at our house! This morning when checking my email I got a message that my book was live and on sale on Amazon! I had thought this was going to happen on Thursday so needless to say I was super excited to find out that it had happened earlier than anticipated. If you would like to order you can find it on Amazon by clicking on the link below. If you do order we would love to have you leave a review on Amazon after you read it!

On to the rest of our snow day...

Grace's breeding heifer for this year.

This morning we made sure all of the animals were tucked in and happy.

I love this pig! What do you think she is thinking? Any caption ideas?

The girls made several batches of slime, made their own lunch in the air fryer (they were hungry and I was working on scheduling author visits), and played with Grace's new cat. Thank you, air fryer, for making lunch easy.

This evening we ventured back out to check on everyone again.

Baby Mouse is doing great!

My chore helper did a lot more playing than helping, but she is pretty cute so I let her get by with it. 😉

What did you do on your snow day? Be honest, do you let your kids make slime? We had a ban for a long time, but now they are back to doing it again. How much snow did you get at your house?
