Today is my mom and dad’s 36th wedding anniversary! My mom moved from South City St. Louis to Berger, Mo. in 1980. At the time, Dad farmed the land around the house she would buy. The story goes that it didn’t take too long before Dad “started showing up,” asking Mom questions about her horses. So, one day, nearly 40 years ago, she asked if he wanted to go for a ride. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! #thebeginning #citygirl #countryboy
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
