As I walked in this quite little village , in the predawn light, I caught a glimpse of the amazing Harvest moon, still low in the sky, it was big and round and had a glow of warm orange that only mother nature can create. A big smile on my face, I continued, there around the bend, was the family of deer I see each morning, they are only a few feet away from me, standing proud and fearless in the early morn, I call out to them very softly, and they barely take notice, just continue their morning grazing. There are about 7 of them, two babies.I love that they are a part of my day. On down the street I find that the local peacock has decided to hang out at a different house than usual, then I remember it is garbage pick-up day and he always leaves home on that day and goes to church, yes , he does, he goes to the church yard on the next street. I think those loud trucks scare him. As I continue down the path, thru the post office parking lot, and toward the park, on to the school track to wrap up my walk, I have to stop at our store and get a bottle of water, as the temperature is rising, and I am getting to warm, but I am on the home stretch .. the cows are there to say good morning…the owner of the cows plays country western music for them 24/7 as they are show cows and they have to prepare to be in a noise environment . I always think they are looking at me with their big brown cow eyes and asking”won’t you please turn that d—– radio off for us” I almost would if I thought I could get through the electric fence without getting zapped. I am sharing all this with you to post my gratitude for all this richness in my life, I am thinking everyone should be so lucky to start their day in this magical way… what was magical for you today?
Welcome to Willow Nest!
Ludmil and I met and married 15years ago, little did either of us realize then what true soul mates we are. Or maybe a better description would be that we are the best of work mates.
It has often been said "do what you love and the money will come" or from the Field of Dreams "build it and they will come". Indeed, that has been the case for us. We wake everyday with not enough day to complete all our tasks.
The name originated from our fist home together in Oregon, which had a willow tree, was on a little piece of land, with a tiny barn, a farm.... and we are Nester's unequivocally!.....Willow Nest Farm was birthed!
