Happy Monday—time to get this week started! 💪💃🏻🙌
There are almost 11.6k of you following my farm on the gram. WHEW, I am seriously humbled! When I told Mike (my husband) how many of you follow our journey, he asked, “What do they want to do that for?” 🤪 If you have a husband who doesn’t understand social media networking, please raise your ✋hand! Mike keeps my eye balls rolling!
For all of the new faces following our journey—WELCOME!
My name is Dennita and I live in Virginia with my husband Mike, retired (25 years) 🇺🇸Army/Navy veteran of foreign wars. He now works for the DOJ. We are the parents to 5 beautiful children; our “baby” is in his sophomore year at Virginia Military Institute.
I am a veteran educator of 21 years. I’ve enjoyed serving as an elementary sped teacher/behaviorist, middle school teacher, alternative high school teacher, reading specialist, and teacher for children w/ #autism. Next year I’ll land my dream position as an elementary Asst Principal. I can’t wait!
Mike and I are almost #emptynesters. We decided last spring to follow where God ever so gently lead us and here we are living our best 💃🏻🙌 lives owning our own agritourism facility.
We have such big hearts for rescued animals! Most of our farm animals have been rescued from the most pitiful conditions. We get so excited knowing we can give them a second chance at being loved and socialized while living TERRIFIC LIVES on their FOREVER FARM.
As we grow, we are vigorously moving toward being a therapeutic facility for children with special needs. This is our heartbeat, especially with our middle daughter having Spina Bifida.
We are two EXTROVERTS. In layman’s terms, we don’t know a stranger anywhere. We love people, and I think most ppl love us. He’s artistic and enjoys building; I like decorating and organizing. I may be a bit OCD with cleanliness. That’s really never been diagnosed 😂; I’m just repeating Mike.
We have about 180 animals, 2 full time careers, and 2 great big ❤️ for serving others. We are glad you’re here to share our passion!
We want to get to know you! Tell us where you live and if you #farm or #homestead below in the comments! ❤️Dennita and Mike at Dinwiddie County Tourism
