"a portrait, once a week, for the year of 2014"
week thirty seven.
it was this week that my parents said goodbye to their milking herd. my father and mother started their own farm at the young age of 19 and had rarely had a day off in-between then and now. i have learned hard work by their example. it was a bittersweet moment to watch each cow to be auctioned off. if only i could have read my parent's minds when that first cow was sold. they now will have so much more free time, and not have to get up every single morning and stay home every single night to milk. a complete change of pace for them. so proud to call them my mom and dad.
