Farm Life

And so it begins. Again.

They call me the crazy chicken lady. Well, maybe they don’t, but I’ve self diagnosed myself as such.

 

I have a tugging at my soul to get out in the dirt. A love for the warmth of the sunshine in the middle of winter. A need for baskets of fresh eggs, and fresh veggies piled up on my countertops.

 

And so it begins. Again.

 

The simple life is calling. It’s been the end-goal for the last few years of camper living & house building. We’ve made it.

 

The pasture has been plowed, seeds have been sown. Chickens have made their way to us through good friends.

 

Don’t get me wrong, we’ve got a TON of work left to do around the ‘farm’. We are far from where we want to be. There is a greenhouse/chicken coop that needs to be built, compost pile to be started, fruit trees to be ordered and planted, and lots of flowers/flowering trees for the bees nearby. And I have dreams of a roadside stand to fill our summer days with in between dips in the pool.

 

But we’ve arrived. Arrived to a work hard & reap the rewards time of our life. A rewarding time that I never thought would be possible just a few short years ago. The time freedom to do what we want, to live with purpose & passion for the things we love and to help bless others abundantly through our gifts.

 

And so it begins. Again. Get ready, y’all.
