2011 Dream Lists, UNVEILED!!!

Today, we made it official.  We wrote them.  We colored them.  We stickered them.  We are ready to make them known.

“We” is Me, my 6-year-old son and my 3-year-old son.  The Animal Whisperer will have the boys make his later.  Or, he’ll keep it in his head for the year.  He’s not much for the writing, coloring, stickering or officialing.

I on the other hand, am.

So, here goes.  You are the first to know that I want to be on Good Morning America.  I can see it now….”The Goat Cheese Lady on Good Morning America!!!”  They’ll pay for my first ever trip to New York City, they’ll do my hair and my make up and get me a pedicure.  Maybe they’ll even provide me with some New York new clothes!!!  It works that way, I’m sure, right?

And that I want to farm like Joel Salatin.  Our land will be evenly grazed by our goats, our chickens will follow, our hills will be rolling and green, we will grow a plentiful garden.  We will eat only the food we grow.  Minus a pack of Oreos every so often.

Hey, you’ve got to dream big!!!

My 3-year-old is more of a fan of the stickering.  But he sure has incredible writing!

My 6-year-old can do it all by himself now.  His own spelling included.

Have you done yours yet?  Remember, you just have to write it down.  You don’t have to get everything on it done!  It just gives you something to shoot for.  So, start shooting.  Make your dream list!

– The Goat Cheese Lady

P.S.  If you are reading this and work for Good Morning America, I am available any time to be on your show.  Can I bring my goats?  I am the main milker in the family, you know.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
