Women in Ag: Some Things Never Change

On the days that life seems to be moving 100 mph and I feel out of breath from trying to keep up with chores and emails and phone calls and errands, I truly cherish the moments when everything slows down. At our house, those moments look like getting back to the basics in life. A cup of coffee on the front porch, a walk down the road to Mom and Dad’s house, or deciding to take the ’86 Chevy with tempermental breaks into town to get milk (with the dog riding shotgun, of course). 

I find great joy in these small moments. Society, as a whole, moves at such a fast pace today with all of the technology and multitasking, and I can certainly keep up with the best of them if I need to. But sometimes, it’s so refreshing to remember to make time for the things that haven’t changed over the last few decades. Taking the back roads home even though the gravel will dirty the car, throwing a stick for the dog, picking fresh vegetables out of the garden... Ahh, I feel more at ease already. 

What’s your favorite way to stop and smell the roses?
