It has been an exciting day. While many have to spending the day with loved one, celebrating their love on Valentine’s Day, Simon and I have spent the day together doing what we love.
While many others were getting ready for a night out on the town with their love to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Simon and I were using my hair dryer for a different purpose.
Farming is 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and those of us that are lucky enough to be a farmer do it regardless! Animals don’t know that it is Valentine’s Day. They don’t know that you had your heart set on going to the movies and dinner with your husband. Animals are relentless in their demands regardless of time of the day, temperature or what plans you thought you had.
So while many spent the day preparing to celebrate their love, Simon and I celebrate ours like we do every day … sharing our dream, our passion and our true love of animals and being a farmer. We spent the day bringing new life into this world and giving into the demands of these new little lambs. By the time we got done with everything and back into the house, we were both exhausted. A very hot shower later and scrabbled eggs for dinner, we are both very blessed that we got to spend our Valentine’s day doing what we truly love!
