As most of you who have been following my blog for awhile know, I was engaged to the man of my dreams last year. And since then we have been planning a wedding. And as the saying goes, smaller the town…bigger the wedding! So our intimate gathering of over 500 people will be this Saturday…I can hardly believe it!
I have to admit it hasn’t been easy having my dad take a step back in management, challenging me to step up in my career while at the same time knowing that the wedding day was going to come much faster than I realized. So I took it one day at a time, asked my dad to be patient when I couldn’t work on a Saturday because I had appointments to try on wedding dresses, get my hair trial done, makeup trial done, pick up the wedding dress…the list goes on and on for prep work! And now we are finally here…six days away! But where dad took a step back from management, he very quickly took on a large role with my mom of making sure the farm was just right for the big day. And it is looking incredible thanks to all of their very hard work!!!
It’s been interesting keeping the farm running smooth while planning for one day of our lives…one big day…but still ONE DAY! My brain has been scattered with details of irrigation timing mixed with linen choices, and dealing with a broken down tractor while at the same time on the phone with our caterer, or wiping grease off my hands on my way to pick up my wedding dress…let’s just say that I’m glad this juxtapose of life only happens once! And I’m glad I have some great workers by my side to keep me straightened out most of the time!
So all that being said, things are going to continue to be a bit wild over at Kirsch Family Farms World Headquarters for a few more days. And if you call to ask me about wheat, I may think it’s for our center pieces, not for loading on a barge. Or if you ask about how the rust is looking (fungus that grows in our fields) I may just assume that you’re talking about our rustic country theme. Bear with us…the big day is just about here and it’s going to be incredible!
