Happy Birthday from the Farm

So, I’m not naming names here, but it’s possible that someone might have had a birthday in the last week, and while that someone didn’t want any gifts for said birthday, I couldn’t just give her some lame birthday card. We do a lot of stupid shit on this farm, but we don’t do lame, okay?

Instead we did this…


Listen. When your daughter has a farm you will sometimes be asked to watch the farm in the middle of winter and haul ten gallons of water out to the barn in the freezing cold every day. You will be asked to dig holes. To weed gardens. To use your own coat to make a tent around some tender tomato seedlings so they don’t die in a late frost. (Seriously. I didn’t ask for that… it was all her.) You may also be asked to act as a human horse for one project or another…


But you will also get an entire cohort of farm animals to wish you a happy birthday.

Even if there is some question as to which end of the sign is up…


And certain someones may photobomb your pictures…


And one stubborn ass might walk right off set when he disagrees with the creative vision for the shoot…


We’re not perfect, okay? But we’re pretty effing adorable, and, let’s be honest, that’s what counts…


Seriously. They adore her.

Thanks for all the help around here, from everyone on the farm!

I'm not interested in a mediocre life. I'm here to kick ass or die.
