I mentioned in this post that it was so important to me, this time around with the blog, to really focus on what makes this part of Virginia that I call home so great. Well, these pictures are a perfect place for me to start telling that story. This farm is right down the road from my house - I pass it every day going to and coming from work. It's beautiful. There's a big farm house (the owners') that sits on the opposite side of the road. When my dad and I were out taking these pictures last week the owner actually came to the edge of the property and asked if we wanted her to take a picture for us - that's the place that I call home. I explained what we were doing and thanked her for letting us set up shop for a few minutes on her land.
As you scroll through these pictures, there are a couple that I'm clearly laughing. This horse, y'all, was the sweetest creature ever. I didn't grow up around horses, and I asked my dad if all horses are that friendly - he assured me, no. This one came over while we were taking pictures, put it's head over the fence and nuzzled my back at one point. I was able to pet it and love on it almost the whole time we took these. My crazy cat lady tendency actually extends to all animals....
