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.

  1. Lovely, it makes me miss my home in Big Bear City, CA. I sold it this year. It seems so long ago. I have been to Chicago once but it was summer and I have been to Arcola twice and Champagne but it was summer also. I would have loved to see them covered in snow. You have a good eye for photography.
