~Photos March 2012 and Happy 27th Anniversary~

Today is Fred and my 27th Anniversary!

I can hardly believe how quickly the years have gone by.  Seems like only yesterday when my father walked me down the aisle at St. Mathews Catholic Church, lifted my veil, kissed my cheek and turned to Fred and said, “she’s all yours”.  I am very lucky to have such a wonderful husband and father of our children.  I can still remember our meeting and him asking me to marry him in less than 24 hours.  He was on a custom harvest crew and I was working at a US Forest Service station in Colorado.  A chance meeting, the right place at the right time.

Looking back now, we must have been nuts, but it was all in God’s plan for us.  The best thing I ever did was say yes to my farm guy.  I can only hope that he’s as happy with me as I am with him!  God bless all the great husband’s and fathers out there.

We have been busy this week.   It is raining and we are so happy to finally receive some much-needed moisture.  We’ve been really praying for this, and are thankful, but need a lot more!

The wool truck came to pick up all of the wool that Clayton and Luke have collected. We moved the bee hives around and dug two new potato fields among other things.   Hold your mouse over the photos to see what we are up to.  Photo’s are in no particular order!

Life is good by golly!  Have a wonderful weekend!

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?

    Happy Anniversary!! Love, your favorite neice! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

    PS – everytime I say “I don’t want kids” or “no way am I having kids!” or “childbirth sounds like the most awful thing in the world,” or “kids are too expensive,” Nonna and my mother so kindly remind me that, “Aunt Sandra used to say she wasn’t having kids… then she fell in love with a cowboy, moved to a farm, and look at her now!” So I guess I’m bound to have 9+?!

    I enjoy your blog so much! What a fun, interesting, fulfilling and busy life you guys have over there. Your children will have a whole childhood’s worth of wonderful memories, and so many stories to tell. I also find your stories & pictures very inspiring. We have 5 children at home (and one young adult out on her own). My oldest at home is 13 and the rest are 6 or younger. My 13 yo is extremely helpful but we certainly don’t get half as much accomplished as your family does what with all those great helpers! 🙂

    Happy anniversary to you. That’s a great photo of your farmer husband with the barn behind him. 🙂 I adore my farmer husband so much, I love just watching him stroll around doing his farm work in his muddy boots with chicken feathers in his hair…… 🙂

    Thanks for taking the time to keep your blog!

    • Thank you very much Aubrey, what a pretty name! Kids do grow up eventually:) and they really are a huge help around here, as you can see! It makes for a wonderful, busy life. Sometimes crazy as in now, with the lambing. It is nice to hear that you adore your husband, what a blessing. Kids see their parents working, they just naturally want to be a part of it.
      Thank you also for keeping such a nice blog of your efforts and experiences.
      God bless,
