Skip to my Lu, my darlin'.

Fly’s in the buttermilk.
Shoo, fly, shoo.

We always enjoy having young adults come to Russ-Stick Acres.

As with adults, we enjoy it when they share our excitement.

Excitement about the animals.

And living simply.

LuLu is no exception.

She works hard.

She plays hard.

But it’s more than working and playing.

It’s about being an individual.

Enjoying nature

It’s about the excitement of being in nature.

Gentle touch with horse

Not being afraid to connect.

To be on the cusp of childlike wonder…

…and not be afraid to live life fully.

Something we adults forget at times.

Thank you, LuLu.

For reminding those around you of the wonder of being a kid again.

Until tomorrow ~ God willing,
