I've been looking through a box of some things Teri's given to me - a time capsule of sorts, from the beginning of our Farm Chicks journey together. Pictures, clippings, journal entries, our first magazine articles. And it's been hard.
I've been blessed to build a business with my best friend, who's really been like a sister to me. And we've been able to do what we love, while being homemakers at the same time. It really doesn't get any better than that. And although I'm having a hard time at the moment, looking back on our journey together, they're memories I cherish and I'm incredibly thankful.
And I'm carrying on. The Farm Chicks is something I love, something I'm proud of, and something I can't imagine ever not doing. And it's something I'll be doing on my own - but I'm really not alone. I know that we're all in this together and there's an incredibly supportive community out there.
I have dreams and inspiration for The Farm Chicks and will include you on my journey. I hope to see you here often and at the show, which of course, will go on. Because I love it.
Thank you for all of your warmth and encouragement over the years. I look forward to getting to know all of you better.
