green acres


city girl


farm boy


he’s blond

she, brunette,

(haircolor, that is)


does chocolate

milk really come 

from brown cows?


better get a scoop

bull— is piling up!


digging ditch together

is newlywed boot camp;

a “hopelessly in love“

truce to trench warfare


loading livestock 

is a loaded activity

testing marriage vows

(and assorted oaths)


can’t throw bales?

ok, you can drive but

easy with that clutch…

hay, hey, haaeey!


till debt ?

“no-till” death

do us part.

    AWESOME farm love! This rocks. Totally. I was smiling all the way through as I read it. 🙂

    Oh, this is clever wordplay, and it gave me a smile! But I liked the reality of it, & the love underneath.

    This is such a cute and creative description of your marriage. Love the line about chocolate milk. I can only imagine life on a farm was eye opening for you.
