Houzz TV: Life, Love and Purpose Down on the Farm
The story of how landscape designer Connie Cunningham became a farmer and then opened a bed and breakfast has more twists and turns than a bumpy country road — but the telling reveals how love of home breeds perseverance and passion.
It begins with her mother, Patty Cunningham, a widow who raised her three children (Connie, Chris and Bob) in St. Louis by painting large murals in commercial buildings. For years Patty longed to return to the Ozark Mountains where she grew up. After she retired, she discovered a lovely 80-acre spread in a small valley outside of Morrison, Missouri (population 123), and settled down on it to raise hay and fix up its dilapidated cottage. But then her life — and the lives of her family — changed dramatically.
