It’s been a busy six months since my last blog update. After years of planning and hoping, our dream of a family homestead is about to become a reality. My parents, siblings (and their families), and I are on the brink of a new adventure — and I cannot wait to begin!
We sold two pieces of property and purchased another a couple hours away. We are now the proud owners of 40 acres on a small, rural highway. It is mostly wooded — tangled and brambly, full of black walnuts and wild blackberries. There are a couple small clearings and a pond. Best of all, there is a small, year-round spring bubbling out from beneath a large boulder. The possibilities seem endless.
We are all wintering in the city. I’m writing when I can, which means a lot one week and none the next. This season is crazy, but after years of feeling stuck, I am so very thankful.
