Feeling like it might be time to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. I’m Lindsey, just an everyday girl making a go of living in the country. We launched our online Market and Blog this past summer and it has brought us so many gifts (and by gifts I mean new friends, connections and experiences). Here is a glimpse into me.
*My greatest purpose is being a mom to my 3 amazing kids.
*I married the guy I couldn’t live without 7 years ago, and he has mastered the role of step dad (there were steps in getting there but we see no ‘step’ in his title).
*I am a medical mama, all 3 of my kids have extensive medical histories ~ Their photos have been made into art on the walls of the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
*In my past life I was a social worker and I am a registered EMT.
*4 years ago I was diagnosed with a tumour in my right wrist.... It changed the course of everything.
*We knew NOTHING about living on a farm when we left the city. NOTHING!
*I am terrified of cows. Like drive off the road scared, when a cattle liner passes (no easy feat being an Albertan).
*I have always had a thing for animals. At 17 I had two pet ducks that rode shotgun in my VW Beetle.
*I have an iced tea addiction (my family calls me Mama Si).
*Someone dipping a ketchup fry in my gravy or adding a different kind of chips to my chip bowl makes me want to hurt them.
*Sometimes I have donkey or pig poop in my hair or on my face. Please tell me!
