We spent Thanksgiving with my husband’s parents and extended family. While there, my MIL pulled out a photograph and shared it with several of us:
The little girl is my mother-in-law. Her father and mother (my husband’s grandparents) appear to be petting the farm dogs, while my MIL’s older brother stands tall with cattle behind him.
The farm is still there and operating today. Slim farmed there until his health declined, although he outlasted his son (the young boy in the photo above) who farmed alongside him and sadly died before him. That boy grew up to have children of his own, one of whom farms the property now. Another of my husband’s cousins runs the old farmhouse as a B&B.
We went there after The Lovebirds‘ wedding in August. It was so fun to share this place with my uncle, sister, and my brothers’ families.
