Multitasking your dreams until synchronization
* Ben’s dreamy *
Quite literally, he lives in the clouds, it’s his determination to bring dreams to life that makes him special.
He’s a believer that if you have multiple spinning plates at the same time they are become synchronized at *some* point.
He says, you have to focus on certain plates for a little and then move to a otter plate, bouncing around isn’t a bad thing….sometimes It feels like we don’t get anywhere because projects don’t get 💯 finished before moving to the next…
But it’s because of seasons, sometimes you can’t finish a project because of a derail like a tractor breaking, instead of throwing in the towel, he moves to the next project, while the tractor gets fixed.
Ben’s also *dreamy* because look at that smile when he is doing what he loves, building. He’s a carpenter by trade and by-goodness, he is building a photo studio in our barn + a boutique to be open at @simplycountryranch + @simplystainedshop

I am not a cook, so if I can follow this recipe and recreate the magic, I promise you can do and create the best ORANGE SAUCE. Think of all the chicken dishes you can create with this!
Take an opportunity, you don’t know where it’ll lead.
That doesn’t bother me because when I started ranching I had to google terms like, “what a HEIFER was,” (cow that hasn’t had a baby) and a “STEER” (castrated male) but the point is,
when you SHOP LOCAL you get real things, REAL people framing your art, real highlands captured through the lens of my iPhone that live here on our @simplycountryranch
