DSC_4116

Nine months ago we bought our little white house on 12 acres. It was a full year earlier than we expected and we’ve spent the last few months catching our breath after doing phase one of a kitchen renovation, foundation work, figuring out country internet and what it means to take care of this place. It’s a learning process. It’s slow. It’s costly. It’s the country living right outside of town that we hoped for. It’s a mess. It’s beautiful. It takes lots of hope.

Here are way too many photos to show you where we are since August.

Stop Waiting for the Next House

DSC_3634

I wasted too many years waiting for the next house. The next house held all of the possibility. The current house was just temporary. I felt like I could never truly settle whether it was a house we owned that was far from perfect or a rental that felt too temporary. It took 13 different […]
