Feeling Like Summer

 Thank goodness too. Did anyone else feel as though it took 2 years for it to get here? And the weather has finally been cooperating too, at least here in Missouri.

I'm going to play a bit of catch up since I haven't posted in awhile. I've been meaning to, but I wanted to get some editing complete before hand. But that didn't happen- mostly because I got a new computer, oh and I've been terribly busy.

Father's Day was absolutely phenomenal. I met my parents at church, came home and made brunch with the family and then set sail on the pond to fish for the remainder of the day. My father is such a cutie- look for yourself.

Home is truly where your heart is. You don't know where you belong, until you leave it. This is where I belong, not in some city apartment in a bustling neighborhood. Gosh I need to find that man who will take me out of the city. Afterall, that's what is keeping me there. No I'm not desperate, psh.

 I recently got back from Houston, which I will post more about later once I get the photos uploaded and edited from my DSLR. But here is a peek of the awesome week I spent with my distant best friends.

Finally to finish up my current events, it's fair time at Warren County. This fun filled week had such a huge impact on me growing up. I first showed when I was 13, and have shown an able up until I graduated college. I have so many memories from the fair, having grand champion rabbits, to winning showmanship, to wrestling a greased pig and being crowed Miss Warren County 2005.

Well its been 6 years since I've been back to the fair, and let me tell you it was bittersweet. Its so strange not recognizing any of the show kids (back then I knew every 4-H and FFA kid that I competed against). But it is also heart melting when people come up to me and say hello, that they knew me when I was Miss Warren County. Last night I helped at the livestock barn, I assisted in handing out show ribbons, the announcer Mrs Englelage recognized me for returning to the fair to help and volunteer, it really touched my heart to see everyone appreciative. But I say nay, I say THANK YOU to everyone of the exhibitors and parents for all their support for such a great agriculture community. These events today will continuously shape us for the rest of our lives. Raising and showing goats, sheep, rabbits, hogs, chickens and steers has made me the person I am today. It created memories that I will never forget, or want to forget. I cherish this week, and I want to give my children the same experiences.
