Hello, my name is Annette. I live in a small town called Adairsville in Georgia. After living for almost 10 years in the suburbs, we moved out to the country. I think I've always been a country girl at heart, and despite the challenges I am so happy we live where we do! Many of my friends think I'm crazy for living an hour out of the city. I hope to convince you otherwise:) I now live on our small farm with my husband Jared, our chickens, ducks, 8 alpacas, 2 cats, and 2 mini donkeys!

Breathing the fresh air and coming home to peace and quiet has been quite the amazing change.My husband and I think this world keeps getting crazier and crazier and it's good to learn how to live a simpler life, grow some food, and enjoy nature. It has been a true joy thus far! I've been a nurse for over 12 years and currently work in ICU. I have also been a wedding gown designer (Chaviano Couture) 

Why the name Azure Farm? Azure means "The color of the sky on a clear day" Who doesn't love a blue sky and great weather? They bring a feeling of happiness. I hope you feel the same when you read about our animals and follow our story.

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD: Very important to me. My parents from a very young age instilled in me a love for God and a desire to do His will and let Him lead my life. I continue to try to do so every day. Prayer is a big part of my life, and I believe God answers prayer. If you have a special prayer request you’d like for me to pray for tell me about it!
