Black Angus on the move.

Did a fast up and back to Fayetteville to see the mother unit for her b-day today. The fields, red barns, silos, and mountain views of Franklin County,TN through the car window; Grundy County in the rearview; and 'Read My Mind' by The Killers cranked to somebody-should-scold-me-because-that's-hearing-level damage on the stereo reminded me to pause and be grateful. Life zips past (oh thit, is that a cop??). Before you know it, you're somehow 51, your mama is 76, and although you really_really_gotta tinkle, it's only 30ish more miles to the miracle that is indoor plumbing, and you need to revel in the little things, full bladder and all, to pursue your happiness with abandon. Look around because God gave you this micro-moment, in a lifetime of brutal ups and easy downs, to choose. Never quit searching. The good stuff you deserve is still out there, even if you gotta drive and hurt to find it. And, yeah, I'm talking to you. You know who you are. #christianthoughts #suicideawareness #yolo #godisgood #onelife #ruralamerica #govols #tennessee #thekillers #mission22 #youmatter #unitedweheal

Another beautiful night walk ❤️

Took my daughter to college this evening with the bad weather pending, and while she was in class, I drove around. This might just be one of my favorite fencerow finds! This field was completely yellow and the fence was old style. There was tall green grass on the edge, all the way to the oil top road. #hdr_country #ig_america_rural #backroad_visions #raw_mobile #fence #ruralamerica #rsa_rural_ #yellowflowers #pasture #beautiful #backroadsoftexas #hdr_country #backroads #countryside #iloveyouveryvery #skies

🔘I’m the one entertaining the Uber driver with questions during our five minute ride. 🔘I’m the one telling a story about my childhood and vividly remembering every detail. 🔘I’m the one standing in the pasture baby talking to the cows and dog. 🔘I’m the one giving the two finger steering wheel wave to my neighbors when I leave for work in the mornings. 🔘I’m the one asking the locals for recommendations rather than relying on Yelp. 🔘I’m the one often daydreaming about what life will look like when I achieve my dreams. 🔘I’m the one who looks forward to any opportunity to network with a room full of strangers. 🔘I’m the one who loves a fun evening out on the town, but is also content wrapped up in a blanket on the couch next to my husband. 🔘I’m the one questioning why the rules are written the way they are. 🔘I’m the one always trying to find the best deal before making a large purchase. 🔘I’m the one who lives for heart-to-heart conversations with all the special people God put in my life. 🔘I’m the one who chooses BBQ over tacos every time. 🔘I’m just Tori. 🌾🌼💁🏼‍♀️

As someone who is often out exploring and taking photos, I knew the day would come when I would have too many images, run out of storage and have to upgrade my computer. Having too many photos is not a problem I'm complaining about but being without a computer while I wait for the new one to be set up has been a lesson in patience. I've been on a few road trips in recent weeks and can't wait to start editing the new photos but in the meantime it's given me a chance to look back on older images I had forgotten about such as this abandoned farmhouse from two years ago. I had fun exploring this old place with a few photographer friends so it was nice to remind myself of the past adventures while I wait to sort through the new. _____________________ For info on my photography including fine-art prints & photography lessons, please visit my website (link in bio) _____________________ #gatheringdustphotography #albertaphotographer #southernalberta #renegade_rural #style_and_decay #explore_countryside_ #abandoned #abandonedbuilding #abandonedfarm #abandoned_house #abandonedhouse #farmhouse #oldhouse #abandonedplaces #abandonedcanada #abandonedalberta #forgottenplaces #rural_love #abandoned_seekers_ #fixerupper #prairielife #forgotten #ruralamerica #ruralcanada #ruralalberta #abandoned_places_pics #lostplaces #bpa_rural #backroad_visions #photo_hitchhiker

Relationships are where it’s at.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For small towns, we need to have a mechanism in place for communicating with the people that used to live there and might have a desire to one day return.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How we nurture relationships with that specific group of people—I call them “friends of Oakes” when I think of this in the context of my small town—could be key to attracting at least some of them back.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When there’s a job opening, a business for sale, or some other opportunity to share, that group should be the first to know.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does your town have a thriving alumni network? How does your community stay in communication with the ones who have come and left?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #communication #alumni #network #relationships #smalltownlife #smalltown #ruralamerica #livebiginasmalltown #seethegood #bloomwhereyoureplanted #bedeeplyrooted #smalltownpride #smalltownusa #creativeentrepreneur #instagramforbusiness #beyourownboss #entrepreneurspirit #personaldevelopment #shoplocal #shopsmall #smallbusiness #growthmindset #entrepreneursofinstagram #goalsetter #calledtocreate #growyourbusiness #smalltownbusiness #smalltownentrepreneurs

A typical scene from #ruralamerica. Results from a botched meth lab. A chemical reaction that blew out the windows and neighboring windows. Shuttered and containment furniture strewn in the street for a month now. Home to Native and Poor white families the apartment dwellers continue on with their lives. Children just look on as they pass by. No one coming to clean it up. #newmexicotrue

Discovered this beauty this morning. I hope it brings you much joy! Explore...Discover....Photograph

I FEEL PINE — Fall officially said hello to us yesterday in Maysville. The air is cool. Mornings are dewy. All is quiet. We feel fine. . October is almost here, and things are starting to look busy for tree season. We receive 5-8 phone calls a day from people looking for Christmas trees— primarily Fraser Fir. A few years ago the media created a hype around a shortage of Christmas trees. That shortage hasn’t quite smoothed over yet. Our orders typically cut off September 1, we still take orders as we can depending on our supply. It’s amazing that one season a year, people go crazy over having a real, live Christmas tree in their home. They love cutting their own. They love coming to the farm. . As the holiday season closes in on us, consider a real Christmas tree if you haven’t yet. They require no storage room after the holidays you know, just a little extra care.

Wheat harvest 🌾 by Horse drawn equipment. Hubby Shawn is loving the day he gets to harvest with horses. These Percheron Draft Horses are all 3 or under and are settling into their task very nicely. Such a great day out on the Prairie. #horsedrawn #harvesting #wheatcrop #crops #haybinder #farming #farmingwithhorses #drivinghorse #horsedrawnequipment #haying #teamster #teamofhorses #drafthorses #percheronsofinstagram #blueroanhorse #drafthorsesofinstagram #behindahorse #workingtogether #prairielife #countryliving #ruralamerica

Fall/winter prepping 👉 @simplifylivelove 👈 🍁❄️🍁❄️ • • • • • I’m loving these foggy mornings! The seasons are definitely changing and I’m making my winter prep plan with @iamcountryside! We have a lot more animals now than we did last year and it takes considerable effort to take care of them during the cold months. ⁣ ⁣ Luckily, I think I we are in a much better place for them than we were last year. We’ve upgraded the chicken coop so it won’t be so drafty, the heated sheep watering system is installed (not pouring concrete this year in the rain like we did last year!) The sheep fence is complete - not a cobbled together mess like it was last year. ⁣ ⁣ But there are still several things we need to do before winter, primarily in the garden. Here are some of my prep tasks for this fall: ⁣ ⁣ ✔️finish the garden fence, cardboard and mulch around the perimeter to keep down weeds⁣ ✔️add compost to the garden and cover the beds to stop the weeds from germinating⁣ ✔️plant new strawberries as mine did not survive the garden move (I think the turkeys ate them) 🤦🏼‍♀️⁣ ✔️plant peonies and flowering bulbs⁣ ✔️divide and move my irises ⁣ ✔️plant garlic and shallots - just ordered seeds today!⁣ ✔️we still hope to landscape the front of our house this fall - we’ll see if that happens 😂⁣ ✔️apply milky spore to help combat Japanese beetles. I might be a little late on this - looks like it should have gone down in August but it’s still pretty warm, so 🤞🤞⁣ ✔️winterize the bees (still working out that plan)⁣ ✔️winterize the rabbits - need a new plan for them this year.⁣ ⁣ It sounds like a huge list when I write it all out! Guess I need to rally the kids and get to work! How are you prepping for winter this year?

I’ve only gotten a peak of you, wondering what else I will discover.

Is this FALL 2019?! Today in the Paris Countryside we are starting the Fence Project for our Chickens and Goats and we get to enjoy this view! Crazy, right!? .

"México to Mexico" is a project by @viiphoto mentee @hectorguerrero showcasing life for the Hispanic immigrant community in this part of the country. It is a big community, and very quiet—most people usually go from work to their home and rarely participate in public activities. . This week, the VII Academy is sharing the projects that came out of our "The Life That Remains: Photographing America’s Rural Spaces" workshop in Mexico, Missouri this past June led by @dannywilcoxfrazier . We'll be featuring the work of the eight participating photographers, each of whom has a strong commitment to rural issues. . #photoworkshop #ruralphotography #ruralamerica #smalltownamerica #visualjournalism #photographyworkshop #viiacademy

🐒There's a story there.🐒 .. 😎 New handmade pretties are in the shop! 😎 .. I started down this creative path in 2011 "fixing" a bracelet I bought on a New Mexico vacay. And went "plumb apey" over beads! ♥️ .. Learned every technique I could. Love tedious work! Then metalsmithing and stamping, fold forming, wire wrapping, patina, etc. Loved colors, textures, combinations, shiny things!💫 .. My shop name at that time was "Going Tribal." 500 sales in 3 years. Then overnight, online sales stopped. 😳 Whether it was market saturation or Etsy changing its algorithms 🙃 ... I became disheartened.🤷‍♀️ .. I was still entrepreneuring as a FT technical editor and focused on that. Discovered an opportunity to personally curate and sell great stamps, then learned to carve my own stamps [stamptramps] [have 20 to make on the bench right now].🔨 .. I recently retired from technical editing (ain't gonna be eating bonbons and playing bridge 😉) and am coming full circle to creating with colorful beads, textures, shiny metal, etc. Continuing to make and sell stamps. Be at the beck and call for my 86-year-old Mom! And fix shit here on the Ponder Osa in rural America.🛠 .. 📌 Come 'n 👁 what I'm making! 📌 .. #handmadejewelry #beadedjewelry #metaljewelry #metalsmith #stampmaker #retiree #etsymetal #etsyseller #etsytribe #etsyshop #dirtyhandsarehappyhands #alcoholinks #charmnecklace #handmadeearrings #leatherjewelry #shinythings #beingproductive #ruralamerica #entrepreneur #reddirtdiva2
