I've always thought I was a "city girl". I love the energy and accessibility. The people. But now? The "country" has captured my heart. The houses in the city seem so close together. And the traffic so much louder. :)
On Saturday we went out to the farm to drop off our disassembled play structure and ended up staying awhile...chatting and learning more about the property. The photo above is the view from our road looking north. I'm in love.
After reading so many books and blogs about chickens, I found great joy in just sitting and watching our future chickens hanging out. I keep forgetting to ask what breeds they have...so feel free to educate me in the comment section!
I took a little video of our girls for you! :) It's safe to say I'm a little smitten. Can you see our duck?
I may change my official title to "chicken photographer".
We caught a little glimpse of how different country life is for a child...there is so much to do and see. Lucy was such a big helper and wanted to know everything that was going on. But her favorite spot is still on the trampoline :)
Here chick chick!!
This is the official "before" photo of our garden :)
We will be setting up some "work days" soon so that we can get out there and plant and start taking care of everything!
Our neighboring horse came over to say hello.
More work and play.
As we pulled out of the driveway, a wave of gratitude and awe swept over me. I am SO READY for this adventure to begin! I want wide open skies and rich dirt under my fingernails. I want roosters crowing and goats playing. Exactly 2 months from today we move in...so for now, I will start by packing boxes. :) Happy Monday everyone!
