I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Early in March, Husband and I went to Commodity Classic (representing the soybean industry) in San Antonio. Included are classes, annual meetings for various commodities (corn, soybeans, wheat, sorgum, etc.), ag speakers, a huge trade show and about 7,300 farmers.
We stayed at the River Walk Hyatt that was connected to the convention center. San Antonio's River Walk is beautiful, entertaining and convenient.
I met my friend Judy (above) and we spent the afternoon together. We met at this conference about 11 years ago and have met each other every year (but one) since. Getting to visit with her is one of my highlights each year. We became instant bosom friends, and share our love of faith, family, tea, good food, reading, nature, and beauty. As soon as we meet, we start talking! Our husbands have become friends also.
We ate at several neat restaurants with our state group. This place was a lovely old steak house in an historical building. Great food with great company.
This sign was spotted at another steakhouse with a little more relaxed atmosphere. Hee, hee.
