marco’s and my new year’s gift to each other; a bit belated due to one false start but arriving just in time for valentine’s day:
as of 11:00 am this morning, she’s ours.
all ten acres and the pond.
>cue theme from little house on the prairie<
we’re gonna homestead folks (although i prefer to say we’re going to build a “farmette”).
come this summer or thereabouts, should all go well and go as planned, a small farm town in ok. will increase its population from 1,788 to 1,790.
surprised? so are we.
thought we were settled into our little house never, ever to move again? so did we.
struggling to see us as bona fide country folk? ummm….think a little harder..we do have a garden and i’ve been yakking on and on about chickens and such for the past several years.
there is a story behind it all and one that will eventually be told; a method to my madness as well as a vision for this beautiful spot we plan to call home, but for now let me just say…
we’re absolutely ecstatic.
