A New Adventure

I have always wanted to do a market or upscale show in another state.  I have been happy doing the shows close to home, however, I would hear about other shows in other places from friends, and it sounded like such fun.  In the past, I didn't go because I had my girls home and responsibilities here on the farm.  Now that my nest is empty, I have the freedom to just pick up and go if I want.  I will have to find someone to do my chores...(Justine & Josh)...so that Al and I can go together as a couple.  We never did things like that when our girls were home.  We focused our time here and on them.  So, doing a show somewhere else, I feel would be an adventure we could do together.  

So, with the help of perusing the Internet and other blogs, I decided to apply to a show in Rockford, IL.  It was a new process for me, as the application was based on your social media sites.  I remember the good old days when you had to send in pictures.  Anyway, I was accepted.  Rockford is about 3 1/2 hours from us.  Our daughter, Anna, is going to come over from Milwaukee and help me on the show day.   I'm excited to try a new adventure.  Here is the link to the blog:  http://urbanfarmgirlandco.blogspot.com/


I also look forward to meeting some of my followers who might live down around Rockford.  If you do, come on out to the show and introduce yourself to me - I would love that!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
