Yee-Haw! You saw "farm chick" and automatically assumed that's how I would start my "about me blog", right? Sorry to disappoint, but that's not me. Maybe you assume I am extremely vain, I mean I do call myself "Queen Farm Chick", right? Nope, not vain, Queen is actually my family name. I am married and have been since I was 19 years old, but my family name means a lot to me and I thought what better name for my blog than "Queen Farm Chick".
So you understand the "Queen" part, but now on to explain the "Farm Chick". I started helping my dad on the farm when I was pretty young. I helped him off and on during my years at home before college. I can't say I exactly loved it back then because I was young and there were much better things to be doing than driving a tractor, but I did it to help out and I did it because I got paid.
When I graduated from high school I moved to the city to go to college. I ended up spending 13 years away from home, and in that time I married the love of my life, graduated with an Associates degree, had two children, managed at a Cytology laboratory and grew up.
Several years ago my husband and I decided to move back to the small town I was raised in. We decided to build a home in the country and send our girls to a "small town" school. Things worked out and it just so happened my dad needed help. I have since been working for my dad on the farm and I absolutely love what I am doing. I love it so much I decided to take on the role of "Farmer" last year.
The "F"s in my Life
Brainstorming on how to explain to my readers what I wanted to write about I first came up with farming, family, and father. I soon realized that a lot of what I wanted to write about started with the letter "F". I thought it could get interested if I went with a theme and made the categories I wanted to talk about start with the letter "F" (don't worry I will keep it clean).
