a mental health break for FARM DAY

i'm a sucker when it comes to farms. although if you really knew me, you probably would never believe it. i've been all levels and sorts of animal-phobia since i came out of the womb.
i blame that on my fish dying the morning after i bought it. or the dog that tried to bite my ankle. or...i could just sum up that any animal encounter with me was not a pleasant one. enough said.

nonetheless, there is something about being on a farm that isn't quite like anything else. you begin to appreciate the finer things in life. you feel your soiled hands and you appreciate just living on earth--and yes, the ability to smell that sweet aroma of cow manure. thats definitely something i'll need to add to my gratitude list :)
and so, i did what any normal college student would do during the middle of finals weekend...and took a mental health break.

and so now you're about to die in a photo heavy blog post. be prepared. 

Addison Kirk (Idaho) milking the goat. we we both naturals...its Bree Hibert that had...well, thats another story.

baby chicks. 

holy cow i fed a horse.
(ha, i crack myself up....)

Bree Hibert the great, hails form Utah.

And Addison was our goat fetcher....

don't pay attention where my baby goats head is....but look, im holding a baby goat.
i'll be sure to show this picture to Bree when we both have future children someday :)

and i'd have a blanket made out of a bunny's fur if i could...but i'm afraid my guilty conscious would get to me eventually....

All in all. Farm day was a blast. And I came away even more determined to have a farm someday. Fresh eggs, my own garden, horses to ride, goat milk for breakfast every morning. that sounds just like bliss.

okay...back to reality. time to hit the books.

  1. It would be blissful to live on a farm, except for who is taking care of all the animals???
