Pomegranates and Pears | A Video Shoot

Blogging is often weird. I struggle to find the balance between making money and selling out; struggle to keep my blog exactly the way I want it. The truth is that there's a bit more sponsored content than usual coming your way this month, and at times I feel uncomfortable with it. I want to write and I want to share my life, but I also want to work with sponsors that I love. Sometimes I do still wonder if I should just find a "normal" job, but then I get a taste of independence or positive feedback from people about what I do and I am instantly reminded of how much I love it. You can't beat that.

I've talked about this before. Today I have something to add.

The other day, I got an email asking me if I was interested in being in a video for Bayer CropScience. They're donating meals to World Food Program USA this holiday season and wanted me to help them get the word out. Several days later, we chatted on the phone to talk about details.

"Where would we shoot this video?" I asked them, "I live in Minneapolis."

"We can come to you," they said.

I was excited and oh-so-humbled that they had found me and chosen me and were willing to travel to work with me. So yesterday, we set up in my kitchen and we shot a video. I'm still sort of overwhelmed by how quickly and just how real this whole experience has been so far. And to be working to get hungry people fed this holiday season? Like I said already, you just can't beat that.

I'll show you guys the video when it's done. Until then, you can visit the Thankful4Ag campaign page here.

As always, I want to thank you, my wonderful and kind readers, for your support. I can't do any of this without you.

I received compensation for my work with Bayer CropScience, but all opinions are my own.
