While we were away on vacation last month, my new trial run weekly column debuted on Agweek.
I know. I don’t need one more thing to add to my full plate. But I’m piling it on. Agweek reached out to me and while I have learned to say no many times I decided to say yes to this opportunity. There are an array of reasons. I like Agweek. They are a weekly printed publication and now have a television show in our northern prairie region. Of course, Agweek is agriculture focused but my column is about my rural, prairie life. It gives voice to everyday small town stories and life in a new platform and space.
Every Saturday for the next six months you will find it on agweek.com and by summer there will be a new website that will launch a fresh look. Take a read of my first columns:
The Small town welcome wagon which discusses moving to a small town and the welcome I received versus my hometown husband when we moved to our small town eight years ago.
A special circle shares about the differences in my son’s small town school experience versus my larger high school past. We’re all in the same circle in a small town and it’s a unique thing.
Home never leaves us gives a little look into our recent family vacation. I haven’t shared pictures on the blog yet but at least I wrote down a few moments from the trip into the column. It reminded me that no matter where we go or the adventures we have home is our kids’ favorite place, and mine too!
This weekend’s column shares about Anika’s upcoming kindergarten class in our small town, community vitality and what it takes to make our communities go from good to great!
