Not Quite Stranded in Washington D.C.

When I say I got out of Washington DC just in time this weekend, it’s not an exaggeration. We left out hotel at 3:15 AM to stand in line at Reagan National for much too long of a time with no caffeine, only to sit on the runway in Nashville when our connecting flight left AFTER they shut the airport down.

Conference 2

They’re calling for snow later today, but currently, it feels pretty good to be back in Missouri!

Regardless of the weather, the Common Ground conference I attended was awesome! Apparently it doesn’t take much to impress this farm girl because I’m pretty sure I told someone how much I liked the light pendants every time we entered the lobby of our hotel.

Conference 1

And despite being my third trip to the Nation’s capital, this is my first White House selfie.

Conference 5

Another first was attending a conference at the Smithsonian National History Museum!  That was pretty amazing, except that we were so busy all day I didn’t get to look around anywhere near as much as I would have liked.  (We made a three day event fit into two so everyone could catch flights out before Jonas arrived!)

Conference 3

I’m most excited about all the great information I got from this conference.  I have SO MANY ideas to share with you here on the blog, plus more information about areas of farming I’m not directly involved in, like dairy and pig farming.

Conference 6

Ask me your toughest food questions– I’m ready to share the answers!

One thought on “Not Quite Stranded in Washington D.C.

  1. Kelly, In matters of gut health, a prominent online doctor advises against eating pork in all forms because pigs are scavengers and therefore unhealthy for human consumption. I love bacon and sausage and though I can get turkey varieties they aren’t as yummy. What’s the farmer’s answer to this dilemma?
