Hi.

This blog and I have been through a lot together: graduate school, first jobs, second jobs, cross-country moves, third jobs, fourth jobs, funerals, an engagement, a marriage ... and a divorce. 

We've learned a lot, grown even more and we're still adventuring. 

Let's adventure together.

Weak at the knees.

Facts:1. I started my first job when I was 15. Since then, I've held a steady string of jobs to for a number of reasons: pay bills, learn responsibility, fund my shoe addiction. Somewhere between juggling 3 jobs (in one semester) and an 18 credit semester - I didn't learn the basics in the kitchen. It was much easier for me to grab a turkey sandwich.

2. I don't have a background in public speaking. Although I was an active FFA member, I didn't do speeches. I wish I would have, but I didn't.

Standing in front of an audience makes my knees forget they're supposed to hold me steady, my forehead becomes chilled with sweat and my vocabulary takes a right turn for the worst.

3. I love agriculture and communications. Although I write much like I would talk in everyday conversation on this blog - in my professional life I'm obsessed with AP Style. These two {agriculture and communications} have crashed in a multiple-car pile-up to give me an opportunity as a professional in the communications - and agricultural - industries.

If you combine these 3 facts, you are left with this:

Yes, I looked at my phone. I was reading the recipe to ensure I was saying the right information. You weren't supposed to be able to see that, sorry.

I'll work on it, honest.

Can someone tell me why putting a camera in your face can make you lose all sense of normalcy? It baffles me.

On a good note, each Thursday I get to meet the wonderful homeowners who invite us into their backyard. Look at these guys - they're naturals!

Put my big girl apron on.

I wear shorts to work.
