People ask now and then if they can share something I've written.... that led me to write a post on some of the ways people can support awesome content creators.

What did I miss? #blogchat #blogging 
When you spend your time (personal or professional) producing content for various online channels, it is common to get asked "do you mind if I share?" It is a question that almost always is met by

I’m not sure how or when it happened, but 2016 got a bad rep. We had some startling moments for sure and lots of things we didn’t expect happened. Some were personal and others were in the public eye. It seems the public drags on happiness can be…

The fact that I don’t like the cold is so well-known that it is a joke with friends. I prepare for the cold pretty seriously and I worry about having to walk on ice. When temperatures in St. Louis drop low, the hashtag #ihatewinter is bound to come out.…

Capturing the Light of Sunset on Cotton at Harvest Time

There is nothing else like it for me..... seeing cotton fields at sunset is totally unique. The softness of the colors of the sky and the soft textures of fiber tufting out from the rough and rugged plants is captivating. And after a decade or so of having that out my office window and on my daily drive, it is something that truly does call me home.

Pin it so you can watch now and then:
As harvest neared, I craved the light of sunset. It's muted colors softly melting into the fluffy fiber at cotton harvest time contrasted with the rough plants.

Thought some of you would enjoy seeing what the dryland cotton crop around Lubbock looks like! Dryland means farmers have to count on mother nature not irrigation for water and as you'll see, they have gotten some rain and may have a good crop this year!

A photo tour of the U.S. Cotton Crop

Appreciate cotton farming friends for giving me a glimpse at their farms across the country this week. Lots to look at in New Mexico, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas and California!

Wow it has gotten cold here, once in out of the frigid temperatures outside (still surviving the cold for now). I recently cracked open my iPad, opened Quora and saw the question What do farmers do during the winter? I had to answer it in part because I…
I used to think that farmers must be goofing off a lot of the Winter. I have certainly learned a lot since then! THere are lots of things to keep a farmer busy!

So often as I travel at the holidays, I find myself wondering about my fellow man. With my day starting off with a rainy, icy mess, I have to admit my hopes weren’t too high. But I tried to be a bright spot with only friendly glances and words. I worried…
Holiday travel almost always means a crazy travel day but somehow the fist part of my day has been awesome! Hope yours is the same.

When it comes to amazing experiences, sometimes you try to plan everything to the nth degree and other times you do a few things and the rest just fall into place. My trip to Prague was punctuated by an amazing experience on my final night in town. Ellen…
Not sure there is more of a once-in-a-lifetime theater experience than seeing one of Mozart's operas in the theater where he debuted it. Such a great venue too!

Not sure I have ever needed the Olympics this bad.... They are much needed positivity for me! #olympics #rio2016 
This summer has been relentless with the negativity and politics that are pounding us. That's why the Olympics is the antidote I've been looking for!

loves city & farm, travel, photography & communications

Thanks for stopping by and wondering what I am about. My passions are photography, travel and agriculture -- love spending time taking pictures on a farm far from home. Putting all those things together its understandable that differences in culture are intriguing to me…. I can spend a lot of time soaking up things. Its almost always a colorful adventure!

  • Photography — My first “real” job that gave me a regular paycheck was a way to get my first SLR (a Pentax 1000). I carried that camera everywhere shooting things that were everyday objects or new sights. I take photos daily with a Canon 40D, a point & shoot or my Blackberry. I rarely open photo software. 
  • Travel — I got the travel bug early in life…. probably from the first trip I remember making with my family. Camping in the Smoky Mountains, a trip to DisneyWorld and visiting Miami! A trip like that opens eyes and I’ve been looking for ways to get that feeling again & again ever since! I've had the chance to go a lot of places people dream of. I'm blessed.
  • Agriculture — I’m a city girl. Born and raised. From generations of city folks (Memphis, TN). Interesting since I have such a passion for agriculture. Luckily I didn’t need to let go of any of my passions for the city! But I added farming while doing an internship with a family friend during college. He gave me a chance to meet my first cotton farmer and I realized I wanted to work with folks I really liked being around! Cotton communications became the major thrust of my career & the crop a major passion.I now work for Monsanto Company on their public affairs team.
Bragging rights
Um.... seems goofy. Not sure I want to brag but if you want to know what I'm proud of or what my mom may be proud of as far as accomplishments, then we can talk.
