Sunnyside Farm

A few weeks ago, my friend Margaret invited my family and me to visit her family's farm, Sunnyside Farm.  Over the years I've heard Margaret talk about the farm, but I have to admit that until we arrived, I didn't fully understand what a treat it would be to visit.  We were told to exit off the interstate in Evergreen, Alabama, go through a crossroads and look for the white fence with a white house.  I silently wondered if we would know which one it was, but as we drove through the crossroads, there was no mistaking it.  The beautiful white house stood tall on a hill ahead of us surrounded by cotton fields.  

For the last two hundred years, Margaret's family has been stewards of this land, and their love for it is contagious.  The large wrap-around porch invites you into the gracious old home.  The kids run in and out with the screen doors banging behind, and Jack, the yellow lab, right on their heels.  Because we were there in the fall, the pool didn't come into play, but the "shed" was a perfect spot to watch football by the outdoor fireplace.  When we needed a break from the battles of the gridiron, there was fishing, bird hunting, and exploring.  We could not have asked for a better time or better company, and if we are ever fortunate to be invited again, we'll be there!

Jeans and plaid felt appropriate for a day on the farm.

The weather was cool, and I was more than happy to bust out my fleece-lined boots.

I took about a million pictures of the building around the farm.  They were all so cool.

The guys before they headed out on the big hunt!  Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of this picture (or on the hunt for that matter).

Another cool farm building.

The sky was so lovely in the evening.  This picture does not even begin to do it justice.
