its unoffically official

So it's finally "kinda-sorta-unofficially" official.  Gotta sign on the dotted line buuutttt....

After 6 awful long months, Hubsy, the rowdies, and I will finally be moving to the country!  I am so completely relieved to get this process over and start a new chapter in our lives.  Back in this post I talked about my frustration with knowing if this was going to be God's plan for us or not.  Well, He's kept us guessing until the very end ;)
Not gonna lie, it was a pretty difficult process and only a few people really know all the twists and turns we had along the way but you want to know the best part?  Not only is God gifting us with this dream come true but He also made my sister an instrumental piece of the puzzle.  How cool is that?!

Living in the country is something we have always wanted but considered more of a retirement-type of thing until about a year-and-a-half ago.  I think my mid-life crisis actually started at about 35 because what I used to consider "someday" things have turned into "gotta do it now" things.  Right now.  Like now, ya hear.

The more we thought about it the more we wanted this for our kids so they could have the time to enjoy it before girls friends became more important and their focus shifts to their own budding adulthood. Not to mention, we just need more space.  More space for Hubsy's business equipment, a large garden, and hopefully one day...chickens. Eeek, I love the thought of having chickens!  The whole idea of living a little more self-sufficeintly and naturally really resonates with me. And so while we will be gaining land, we will be downsizing house.  This is a little daunting but also very exciting!  Living with a little less "stuff"....I can almost hear myself taking a nice deep cleansing breathe and feeling the freedom of it :)

 And so....these are the things I am looking forward to, all of which will be surrounding our new home.

open fields
dirt roads
rolling hills
four-wheel riding
playing in the creek
fresh local honey
cleaner air
views upon views upon views

So much to be thankful for.
Wishing you and your families a blessed and very Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. So excited for you...hoping the same happens for our family in 2014. We tried in 2013, but it wasn't the right time. : )

  2. So happy for you that after all this time, it's really happening. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Girl, you have no idea how happy this makes me for you!!! I can't wait for you to start your country journey! And I'm no expert...yet, LOL, but if you have any chicken questions, just let me know ;) Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Blessings and hugs to you my sweet friend! :)
