β€œLive the life you love, love the life you live.” ~Bob Marley ❀️ Do you ever find yourself in a moment that sets your soul on fire? ❓ Immersing yourself in the simplest of things is an amazing experience. When you shut out the noise and focus on the things that matter most your soul rejoices. πŸ’― Are you too busy to know what I’m talking about? Do my words seem like wishful thinking? 🧐 Experience teaches us that time stops for none of us. If we don’t make the things that make us happy a priority busyness takes over and they become a distant memory. It’s time to reclaim yourself. 😬 I challenge each of you this week to take one hour to do something that fills your soul with joy. I find that simple things do the trick the best. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Get outside. Silence your phone. Breathe. Think happy thoughts. Smile. 😊 You need this and you deserve this! What do you plan to do? Name it and claim it below! 😍

My Dad's Last Barn… This barn holds special meaning in my heart because it's the last dairy barn my dad ever built. Our family farm was sold in 1981. When I traveled back to Vernon County a couple weeks ago, I took time to drive by and visit the property. Our original dairy barn was lost to a fire in October 1976—all 196 feet of it. Luckily, the cows were saved. My brother wanted to continue dairy farming, so in 1977 my dad (Maynard) and Grandpa Sordahl built this 64 ft. replacement. I know this barn could be in much better shape if taken care of properly—it's only a little over 40 years old. Some of the glass blocks used to build the windows are broken and cracked and the 300-gallon stainless steel milk tank is absent from the milkhouse. I didn't venture inside (although I wanted to) to see if the stanchions and tie stalls were still intact. The barn was built to comfortably milk about 30 cows and included a few calf pens on the end. The perfect little set-up for someone starting out again. But as we know, change is the only constant in life and this story is yet another dream that disappeared and floated downstream. Going back to visit my roots was conflicting because of what I viewed in front of me and around me. Different way of life. Different beliefs. And much different landscape. I'm grateful to be able to cherish the memories from what was once my little corner of the world, and no one can take them away from me. : : ag365 #agdaily #farmsnaps #discoverwisconson #bpa_rural #barns #be_one_rural #barnsofinstagram #countryroads #mcl_rural #midwestliving #midwestmoment #wisconsinbarns #wisconsinfarms #wisconsinrural #ig_america_rural #ig_ruralamerica #ig_countryside #hdr_country #rurallife #roamwisconsin #ruralwisconsin #rural_love #country_features #raw_country #ig_rural #total_rural #farm365
