Hello, Friends! You may or may not have noticed the lack of posts over the past couple of weeks/months. You see, as I mentioned is this previous post, we have some exciting stuff we’ve been working on that has had us busier than ever and I can’t wait any longer to share the biggest news with you. You guys… We are moving to the country!
Well, in all reality, we’ve actually been living here (in the country) part time for the past couple of months. And today, we closed on our city house, so now the adventure really begins!
Wait. What? I’m sure that this may come as a surprise to some and now you want to know all of the crazy details. If you’ve been around for awhile, then you may remember that it was only a little over 2 years ago that we moved back to our city house. We’ve owned that property for over 10 years and even though we’ve moved in and out a couple of times (thanks to work transfers for the hubs) it has been a blast to fix it up.
We thought that our next move would be into a larger home in our wonderful suburban school district. (Our house was on the outskirts of a decent sized city.) However, last summer my great aunt passed away, and a few days before she did, she asked us if we would be interested in moving to her little yellow ranch house in the country. Initially, we didn’t think it would/could work out for us. Her home was located in the middle of nowhere, about 2 hours from our city house and wasn’t really that much bigger than what we already owned. But, we would have so much more outdoor space and after talking things over and checking with hubby’s work, we found that he would be able to work remotely from home for several days during the week.
Honestly, this was not what we were planning for our future, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball. This is a huge change for us! We are gaining a ton of space (i.e. acreage) and will have to adjust to living far away from pretty much every convenience we are used to. However, we are looking forward to the quietness of the country, living closer to family (I grew up just a few miles away from here) and can’t wait to get started working on our little farm. That’s right! I said FARM!
So, to close one chapter and welcome a new one, I’ve put together a little video preview for you. It’s mostly just the land and outside space , but don’t worry, there will be plenty of info about the inside and our plans for the future coming soon. We hope you will join us for this adventure!
