When you live in Wisconsin farm country, cows are more than the things you call out as you drive cross-country. And that’s exactly the case for our photography director and her daughter, Lily. MEJ (as we affectionately call her) and her 11-year-old daughter have taken great pride in raising Miss Moo to blue-ribbon status at the Iowa County Fair.

Before you even ask, yes, that’s a real cat. And that cat’s name is Itty Bitty Black Nose Kitty, of course. She goes nearly everywhere with Natalie, our photography production manager, including her hometown of Door County, Wisconsin. Too bad Itty (for short) wasn’t around when her human was growing up because she certainly would have cleaned up in the fish department. Natalie spent a lot of time out on Lake Michigan fishing and making memories with her dad.
