We have an official accepted signed offer on a home on 40 acres with a barn, big garden, apple trees, and trees producing sap for syrup. I am hesitant to say too much until the key is in our hands and we are moving in, but we are planning that within about 60 days it will be ours!
Projects, dreams of fixing and decorating, and what animals to put in the barn are floating around in our heads. It’s so good to be at this stage of buying after the ups and downs we’ve come across so far in this process.
I’ve been reading a great book about starting a homestead and she caught my visions with her words:
And soon it spread, until the word home could make me cry. I wanted one. With a man. A house. The smell of cut grass, sheets on the line, a child running through a sprinkler. This humble wish seemed so impossible. It was so different from the life I was living, and no one in my circle had those things, or wanted them or would admit it if they did. ~ Kristin Kimball
Soon this home I’ve been dreaming of, full of imperfections but possibilities, will be mine.
