Ben has worked on a tobacco farm, a hay farm, loaded UPS trucks on the graveyard shift, worked on a pipe crew, as a hospital transporter, and a minister. I have worked in a taco shop, a coffee shop, a hospital pharmacy, a bath and body shop, a marketing firm, the art department of a major corporation, and owned my own stationery company.
And now we get to do this. We know it’s only for a short season of our life because TV shows don’t last forever. Maybe because it’s so unusual and we feel so supremely lucky to have been plucked right out of the blue and get to tell y’all why we love our town so much week after week, today on our first day back to filming, I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this job we have. Because y’all choose to watch it. And so we keep doing this. Filming things and talking about our ideas and dumb jokes and making things we hope will resonate with the people we give them to, and hardly ever thinking about the fact that these little bits eventually become sewn together with other bits and eventually it winds up on international television as one big work of art for better or worse. Today was the beginning of season 4 of #hgtvhometown and I can’t tell you how thankful we are for it.
