Grandma Cow's Farm

    I am so fortunate to have had amazing GRANDparents. Though they have all passed, I find myself falling back on the many values they instilled in me. Especially now in my life.  I grew up on a farm that has been in our family for the past 50 years. It was such a delight to skip up to my Grandma's house from mine. Though my dad & his wife live there now, it's still my grandma's farm. Pretty sure he would agree. No one loved it, like she did. Growing up my grandma had nicknames for all her grandkiddos, I was Boo-Botsy. I to this day have no idea why exactly? What is a Boo-Botsy? Haha... no clue?  We called her Grandma Cows. She loved her cattle. She loved her roses, But she ADORED her grandchildren. I truly was her favorite, no joke, she told me many times! Believe me, this Gma would not lie ! I just miss her more & MORE. I visited last weekend. It always nice to always be able to go back to your 1st home. So  glad I still have her beautiful roses to admire. Thanks Grandma Cows.

Mckenzie, my awesome "no pink wearn'" sister.
I'm SUCH a girly girl, she is So not, & she ROCKS! Love this girl.
