There is a small farm near our house that never ceases to bring me both inspiration and peace the moment I open my car door and feel the breeze rolling across the open fields. We started coming here years ago as CSA members and have been so happy to see the farm grown and prosper since then. Now that we have little ones, it provides another dimension of happiness for me to be able to see my girls enjoy its simple pleasures so much. We make at least one visit a week so that I can check out the latest produce and the girls can say “hi” to the chickens and goats. Some days, we even splurge and get an ice cream cone. Either way, there is no happier way to spend a morning or afternoon.
