Every year I receive a barn calendar for Christmas from my mom. I remind her to order it and she orders it and that is how it's been for at least 8 years. It is published by the people who publish Country Magazine and if you have never seen that magazine let me tell you the photos are to die for.

So yes 8 years now I have gotten THE MOST GORGEOUS calendar ever. Every barn has a little blurb about it underneath; who lives there, if it's been in their family more than one generation, what the barn's purpose has been through history and where the barn is. I immediately flipped through this year's calendar and saw that two were in Ohio; one in Wayne County (an adjacent county to me) and one in Auglaize County (I've been there but it's far away). I had seen neither in real life. 8 years of calendars and I've never seen even one of the barns in real life.

Do you know where this is going?

I ALMOST PEED MY PANTS WHEN I FLIPPED TO NOVEMBER AND SAW A BARN IN ABSAROKEE MONTANA! Not only have I seen AND PHOTOGRAPHED that barn, on facebook it is my "album cover photo" for my Montana trip AND my caption is, "could be in a barn calendar" !!!

Next goal: find that barn in Wayne County :).

Hey that is a good barn. Daughter bought a "Barn in America" book for a friend who loves to be on the road, hope we get to see pictures of a few that he will see in person.
