Baby Shower - Farmer Style

 One of my farmer friends recently had a baby.  (I get to go hold that baby later today.)  We had a baby shower for her, farmer style - which means it was in a picturesque barn with garlic hanging from the rafters, with great fresh food including an entire party bowl of bacon!, kombucha, and some exceptional dishes using seasonal excess, fresh flowers all around as decoration.  The gifts were thrifted and cute, though honestly it was interesting to look around the room and realize how rare it is to see that many young women with no children!  I guess that speaks to the profession of farming.  Such beautiful people and such a lovely afternoon.  I think Maggie and her baby are going to be educating all of us:)
