Why did I start a blog? Why would I want to create a website to publish all of my ideas for the world to see? Why would I add another task to my already overwhelmingly busy life? The answer to me is simple - I LOVE to write. It is the absolute easiest way for me to express myself and what I want to share with the world. Lately, I have had an enormous amount of creative energy buzzing around in my head and I needed a platform to be able to let that energy out. Starting a blog has been a bucket list item of mine for years, and I’ve given up on finding excuses to put it off one more day. There is literally no better time than the present.
Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a fourth generation farmer from a tiny hamlet called Welcome in Ontario, Canada. I was the middle child between two brothers who taught me what it meant to be “one of the boys” and never shy away from hard work or getting my hands dirty. My love for a good, home-cooked meal was developed a young age thanks to my mother and grandmother. I have a tremendous respect for our predecessors who worked so hard to clear the land our farms and cities were built on and pave the way to a better life. I have one daughter who is almost a year old and am engaged to be married in August 2019.
I am going to keep this first post short and sweet and to the point. I am so excited to start sharing my thoughts on life with you all. But for now, let’s cultivate kindness, let’s cultivate creativity, and let’s cultivate a life well-lived.
