There are fewer things that I love more than being home with my family in Oregon doing everyday things, and there are even fewer things that I love more than seeing my family happy.
My parents have always dreamed of having property and cows, and of a farmhouse that they could call their forever home.
Once they found what they wanted there were a few frustrating years before it all came together, so when it finally happened it was that much sweeter.
It was a bit overwhelming at first when I came home. I was walking into a completely different place than where I grew up, but with every room and little detail that they showed me, it became more and more clear to me. This home is perfect for them.
I might take pictures someday of the house, maybe even on this trip.
But I knew even before I came home, that the first thing my camera lens would focus on were my dad and those beloved cows.
In case you are wondering, these “Oreo” cows are the breed “Bue Lingo.”
I am only slightly upset that my family finally got cows AFTER I left home…
This barn cat came with the property. My dad has renamed it “Talks a Lot.” It follows him EVERYWHERE, and well, never stops talking.
This is what a very happy, new farmer looks like.
