Conner's A-maize-ing Acres

It's taken me a while to figure out what I wanted to write about since starting self isolation. Being a transplant patient and diabetic I'm at an incredible risk for getting COVID-19 but, I have to admit I've been going incredibly stir crazy. I haven't gone into a store, seen friends or family, or even really left my neighborhood in over 60 days. To say my mental health is in the toilet is an understatement. I never realized how much I relied on my interaction with other to "fill my cup" as a friend says. But this last week we were able to go out to Conner's A-maize-ing Acres and see their sunflower field. They are truly a sight to see. I reached out being nervous about how many people would be there, I saw their field was quite large and thought if minimal people were there I would be okay. I like being outside and the Florida sun could probably kill anything (except those damn cockroaches). After explaining my situation they invited us out when they weren't open to the public so it would just be my family. I was blown away and not going to lie, brought to tears. Ya'll there are still good people in the world, sometimes you just need to dig a little. BettyJean is one of the nicest people I've ever met, she came out to greet us and introduce herself, then we chatted a little bit while standing about 15 feet worth of sunflowers apart. The kindness this one woman showed my family guarantees they will have our business the rest of time we are living in Florida.

Nathan and I traded off taking pictures and chasing the toddler. Honestly V was not super impressed with the sunflowers, mostly because there was a dog and this kid LOVES dogs.

I promise I'll do better at posting. We have lots of pictures of what we've been doing around the house and our few trips out to the beach. Until I feel comfortable taking in business again my posts will be more personal than you're used to.

Stay home, stay safe, and wash your damn hands
