Today I turn 38 years old. I am celebrating my birthday representing the cattlemen of Nebraska at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention in Tampa, Florida.
As I enter a new year in my life, I find myself counting my blessings…
Most of all, I am thankful for my beautiful family and the life that we have made on the peaceful prairie. I am thankful for the natural resources on our farm that allow Matt and I realize the dream of using our hands and our minds to grow nourishment for the world.
Today, I salute all of my fellow Nebraskans and send a heartfelt “thank you” for welcoming me into your communities and into your lives. Please know that your acceptance and love means the world to me.
It is my greatest hope that my toils bring a small part of prosperity to our wonderful state. Although my birthplace was the beaches of Florida, my heart will always lie in the prairies of Nebraska.
