#TBT I come from humble beginnings. This is a photo of my mom, older sister and me on our wood pile. We needed all that wood to keep our house warm through the brutal winters in upstate NY. My dad hunted to put food on the table. I never thought of us as poor though. The lesson in all that wood and the venison... work hard to have and care for the things you love. Thanks Mom & Dad. #humblebeginnings #lifelessons #hardwork #parentgoals
