It is a sweet smelling spring day, the kind in which one can actually feel the warm weather starting to push the gray winter away. Slowly walking down a gravel driveway that is in desperate need of a replenishing of stone, I can hear the wet gravel crunching beneath my feet as I make my descent. I smile as I take in the beautiful scenery that surrounds the farthest barn on my family's farm.
