Our Forever Farm

I'm Back!!!!!

Well, I have debated in my mind about coming back to my blog but I miss all my blogging friends that are not on facebook. So here I am. I am going to try to catch you up on what all we have been up to.  I don't know how often I will pop in but I am going to try because I miss it so much.
 
 
So, just in case you haven't seen the farmhouse we bought. Here it is.
It was built in 1887.
We fell in love with it the first time we ever saw it.

We knew we would want to remodel
 because that's just what we do.
(smile.)

Not only does it have 49 acres with it,
but we also border a beautiful river.

After negotiating for several months and closing on the farm,
the owner had already put in a garden.
It was just a bonus!

This is us the day we closed on the farm.
This was the first day of a beautiful journey.
We call it
"Our Forever Farm."

This is our barn way up on the hill.
This is one of the things we fell in love with.

So, we have actually lived in our farmhouse now for 1 year.
We bought it 2 years ago.
We spent 7 1/2 months remodeling.
So now that's the update making a long story short but
I will be telling you all about our journey so far.
***********************
We are living proof that this verse is so true.
 
Delight thyself also in the Lord;
and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Psalm 37:4

Oh I am so glad you're back to blogging. Doesn't matter how often you blog. Just love hearing from you. I'm one who doesn't do facebook, or instagram. I was able to view your videos (oh my, sooooo much water!!) but never able to comment. I look forward to future posts of your beautiful farm, yummy food, and whatever you make!!
