It’s been 5 months since we moved our family to the country! Everyday it’s an adventure and we’ve learned so much in these months. I don’t even miss our old life! I miss our friends and neighbors that lived close by we don’t get see so much but I feel this move has brought us closer as family. .
This lifestyle is definitely not for the faint of heart. We’ve had to kill snakes, rodents, deal with unexpected death of our farm animals, all while renovating our little ranch house ourselves.
Going shopping is an all day thing, I plan stores that are close by to make it all work in one day since we live so far. But nothing beats going outside and inhaling that fresh air, listening to the birds singing, the goats baa-ing, and rooster crowing! .
All in all, I wouldn’t have it any other way! This country life is surely the best! .

The barn (est. 1909), corn crib, smokehouse & other outbuildings. Beautiful fall afternoon on the farm.
This morning we woke to 25mm in the rain gauge! We are as happy as... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My vision is coming together. @dwellconstruct
has been so easy to work with and they truly get the eclectic style I’m going for. Thankful they are patient with my changes and indecisiveness. Now if the weather would cooperate that would great. 🌧🌬
Another great barn, I love these old barns.
I got some of my favorite Halloween things out today. Sure miss my kids , all grown up now and starting families of their own. I always decorated for every holiday while they were growing up, just doesn't have the same feel anymore.
Good day for coffee and something appley!
So last evening I went driving and the temperature here had dropped drastically from being in upper 80s and hot last few days to 50s and it had just started raining, I stopped and got out to take this picture when it started hailing!!!! Has been crazy here! But the morning glories are still beautiful. I even noticed my forsythia in my yard had some flowers blooming on it .
My "find" today for 2.99!🙌🏻 It is a serving platter so quite a good size, love its oldness it shows.
Wing back chairs I got at an auction for hardly anything, I bought tablecloths and had a neighbor lady reupholster them. That was several years ago and I still love them and their colonial look.
After the rain has gone....
