Well it’s that time. The time between Christmas and New Year’s where I’m back at work, but still thinking about the wonderful times spent with family, afternoon naps I was able to squeeze in, and all the great food I ate last week for Christmas. And just maybe regretting having that extra piece of cake… (In my defense, it was my birthday cake, AND it was the last piece, I couldn’t let it go to waste…right?)

As a little girl, Christmas mornings didn’t consist of pink clothes, Barbie dolls, and makeup. There were toy tractors, model horses, plastic hay bales, barns, and even fences. I mean, you can’t have a horse barn without fencing, right? But I didn’t just ask Santa for farm toys; I asked for real animals.
