Things have been humming right along since last spring and here were are mid March of 2014 already! Uffda!
I just returned from a week long trip to Washington, D.C. for Women Involved in Farm Economics (WIFE). Every March our organization travels to D.C. for our Legislative Conference, where we meet with leaders in government agencies, Congressional men, women, and staff, and industry partners. You can find out more about my trip to D.C. on the Montana WIFE Facebook page and website.

After wearing business suits and dress shoes all last week (and having to wear makeup and curl my hair...), my jeans, insulated Carharrt bibs, and Muck boots felt heavenly! Montana also welcomed me home with a few inches of heavy wet snow!

But that's not my last trip to D.C. this spring either! Come mid-April the Wankel-clan (that's my family) will be gearing up for a big ol' Griswold style vacation back to our nation's capitol via Bozeman, MT! I'll give you a hint...it has something to do with this guy...
