I'm excited to go home to my farm in a few days, and then again over Christmas. I feel so happy and self-sufficient in the city, but then my heart melts when I'm surrounded by my family and old friends. I can't wait to see my nephew, take a trip to the winery, watch football with my dad, help my mom with flowers for a wedding, read, cook, and eat. Did I forget my sister in there? Yes. I'd like to see her too.
