Barn Chicks Who Blog

Farm friends, I have been honored today by my friend Patrice at Everyday Ruralty. She interviewed me for her wonderful feature post called “Barn Chicks Who Blog.” Awesome, right? Wish I had thought of it. She has a wonderful blog with great posts about family, farming, country living and life in general. If you haven’t visited her blog you are really missing out.

Click on the button below and it will take you to the interview if you are interested. Getting a feature for being a barn chick is so exciting to me, being celebrated as someone who wears muck boots, loves Sunday dates to Tractor Supply with my husband,  flower gardening and love of animals makes my heart smile. Thank you Patrice for your interest, kindness and support of all us barn chicks everywhere.


    Happy Wednesday all,

I loved the interview! How fun to have a farm and all your animals. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us. If I'm ever in your neck of the the woods I'd love to see your farm. What a wonderful picture of you. I started reading your blog when you told about Christmas Eve and your lost dog. I was so glad you found him.

Happy Writing

Great interview. I love all animals but I have to say donkeys just melt my heart! I've never had the pleasure of meeting one but it is on my bucket list.

Love the new header! What a nice thing to happen to best little farmers ever! You have the cutest little farm and I love coming here. No wonder someone else thought you were the one to write about. Hope you get lots of PR from this and people start coming to rent the cottage! If I could travel, I'ld be there!
Congrats!

I have fallen in love with your farm and the little cottage on your property. I ordered a beautiful floral quilt off line because the guest house inspired me.

Mary said...

Amy, you are so funny... dates to Tractor Supply, love it! And I think I've been on a couple of those, too.

Inger said...

I loved the interview. I said in my comment on that blog that I wish for guests in your cottage and many weddings for you two hard working people. All the best!--Inger

Janice Grinyer said...

This was a wonderful interview ~ your answers felt like they came from over the edge of a coffee cup...and plenty of goodies on the table to snack on :)

I can truly understand how your relationship with your animals helps define the rest of your interaction with the world...When I need to de-stress (winter is our "paperwork" season ugh!)the first thing I do is visit with the horses, or take a walk with Dexter, or brush the cats...entering their world for a while definitely takes the edge off of the "human" world!

Amy, I have just finished reading your interview, how I have enjoyed learning about you and your beautiful Verde Farm. I knew you would be as lovely on the outside as on the inside! May I inquire how far Northeast you come when traveling for work? Might you come close to Maine? Blessings to you my friend.

I am writing my post for this weeks Barn Charm meme.
I tried to click and read the interview but was told it was only open to invited readers. How would I get an invitation?

While I wait I will look around your blog. Thanks
