God has blessed me so much! I prayed he would allow me to marry a farmer! Trivial I realize, but I have such a strong love for animals. I desired to live a life similar to how I grew up. God blessed me with a man as amazing as my father, a love for animals as strong as mine, and farming in his blood. Not to mention, he looks good in plaid driving a tractor 😍.
He has also blessed me with amazing friends as close as family who allow us to farm on their ranch. Butch and Pat Berry have been so much more than just friends to us, and they are the owners of the ranch. Back in the day, Butch was a real life rodeo cowboy. Elkin is where he made home after meeting Pat, turning her farm into a working horse and cattle ranch. Riders came from all over the country to spend some time roping and riding with Butch Berry, the living legend. Now, this ranch is home to our herd. Our dreams would not have been possible without them!
God blesses us with these beautiful paintings on a daily basis at the farm.
"...and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." - Proverbs 18:24
This scripture could not be more true for this friendship. Jesse is so blessed to have such a dear friend to share this journey with. Andrew has been by our sides through our entire relationship. He's always been a welcomed addition.
The King Family. Three years ago, Andrew married Brittney. Their family has been such a wonderful addition to our lives. True friends are hard to come by, but they are definitely that. And baby Drew just loves to moo at the cows.
Our girls first day on the farm!
The smile never left his face that day. He was so happy to finally have our herd.
I am so proud of how far 6 months has brought us. We love "ranchin" and raising our herd. We have reconnected with old friends and made new memories along the way. Our journey has just started, and I can't wait to see what the future of God's blessings have in store for The Walker's, The King's, and the Berry's.
