Hi Shenanigan Enthusiasts!
I wanted to take a minute to say hello and THANK YOU to all of you who are following the FUNNY FARM! As I type this a I am smiling ear to ear and my heart is bubbling over a bit with joy!
The heart behind love and shenanigans...
All things FUNNY FARM, LOVE, AND SHENANIGANS. My hope is that I can bring a smile to the faces of those who chose to follow along with our daily shenanigans (SHENANIGAN ENTHUSIASTS) and share my heart with all of you!
Have you ever found yourself muttering the words if only...? I know I have. Love and Shenanigans at the Funny Farm is one of the things I once would have "if only'd." Everything about THE FUNNY FARM and my LOVE & SHENANIGANS store represents my shift in mindset from "IF ONLY to WHY NOT."
If someone would have told me 6 years ago that I would be living in Montana making my ever-evolving dreams a reality I would have thought exactly that, IF ONLY." Or maybe Montana, what???
It's crazy how life can unfold in the most unexpected ways. Life throws us all curveballs, we all fall down, it's the getting back up that really counts (Yes, there is a country song about that! click to listen). I have discovered my strengths in the hardest moments. Everything is a blessing or a lesson. My lessons along the way have blessed me with clarity of what matters most to me, and that life is short so instead of thinking "IF ONLY" I think "WHY NOT"! Why not pick our perfect canvas and move there? Why not make our dreams a reality, why not get some goats, pigs, alpacas, and a fluffy cow or two because they are cute? Why not share how they inspire me every day? Why not share their daily shenanigans to bring a little joy to others. Why not create little store inspired by the funny farm and simple things that make me smile? I hope they will make you smile too, and maybe, just maybe inspire you to "WHY NOT" something in your life too!
Why LOVE & SHENANIGANS...
WHY NOT, of course! Just kidding. The truth is I put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect words to encompass all that the Funny Farm is and what I want my message to be. For me, my best life can ultimately be summed up with these two words, LOVE & SHENANIGANS.
LOVE - needs no explanation, LOVE is LOVE and essential to live one's best life.
SHENANIGANS -silly or high-spirited behavior; mischief. I prefer this definition of this amazingly fun word! For me, this includes truly living, being silly, fun, joyful, adventurous, REAL, etc.
My hope for you as you follow along with our LOVE & SHENANIGANS is that you find inspiration to say WHY NOT in your life, look for the magic in each day, laugh' til you snort once in a while, take the bull by the horns, and live your best life! I hope you become a SHENANIGAN ENTHUSIAST too!
I hope your day is filled with LOVE & SHENANIGANS!!!!!
