Shine On, Shine On was the subject of a blog that I did a couple weeks ago. Did you see it? If not, here is the link Shine On, Shine On! I have decided that there are a lot of people that help me "Shine" and I am going to feature them on my Shine On, Shine On series.
Today's Shine On features: Alishia Intermill
Tell us a bit about yourself.
We moved to Nebraska three years ago. I moved a lot growing up we lived in Montana, Idaho, California, Quebec Canada, Georgia, Wyoming and now Nebraska. My husband, Cody and our 2 girls, Paisley and Addi, live on our families ranch, south of Alliance, Nebraska. Cody and I have been married for 2 years. I work part time as a Dental Hygienist.
What does your daily routine(s) look like?
We usually get up, get the kids breakfast, have coffee and then we head out side to help Cody with chores or play. We head to preschool and work on Wednesday and Thursday's.
What inspires you to be you?
My mom and dad have inspired me to be me. They are both some of the most loving people I know and are always willing to take care of others. They have a weakness for children and that has passed on to me.
What do we all need more of?
We all need to be more understanding of other people's battles that we may not see.
What do we all need less of?
We all need less media. I feel like the media can be toxic to our thoughts and feelings. It's hard to find a balance because media is a necessity of our daily lives today. Do you have any advice for ranch wives or any women?
I just moved to the ranch three years ago and it has taught me how to slow down and focus more on my family and friends and less on material things like money. Becoming a ranch wife was a scary and exciting dream for me, I grew up watching westerns and wanting to live on a ranch. It has had its challenges but the rewards are amazing! My favorite time is calving. It comes with long days and hard work but watching all the calves run around and play, like kids make my heart full! How do you stay so motivated?
I stay motivated because my husband and I, now share a goal of wanting to raise our kids on a ranch and teach the values that comes with ranching. Hard work pays off, not just on money.
The only other thing I would add is I love other ranch wife's. They understand your frustrations and understand your joys. They make traded work days fun and enjoyable!
