I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am right now. As you all well know who read my blog, Jim and I have wanted for a long time to have our own hobby farm. Well, that dream is starting to come true. We have been looking for a farm of some sort since last fall. We have been pretty picky about what we wanted. One place might have had this and another place might have had that. But all the places we've looked at just didn't seem right. There wasn't that feeling of...this is it, this is the one.
Until now....The place we found doesn't have a barn of any kind on the property, but it has everything else we wanted, acreage, tillable land and trees. Pretty much being way out in the country you could say, 15-20 minutes from town. We figure we can build a barn and any other out buildings we might need.
Driving up this road we felt like we were going home....
to this. A log home on 19 acres...10 of it wooded and 9 tillable.
I seems like so long ago that we did this, but we made an offer on this place and the owner accepted it. We have been working and waiting to see if we could get the financing without selling our current home. Not an easy thing to do in this day and time.
The view from the back deck.
The woods where there are maple trees, wildflowers, raspberry bushes and wild rose bushes growing from what I could tell.
The ride down the driveway after looking at this place for a long time, I knew in my heart that this was the place for us.
The waiting game is over....It's OURS!!!!!
So, Southwest Wisconsin here we come. I'm happy to say we won't be dragging our youngest kicking and screaming. She's okay with the move, but it's bittersweet for her. She'll be leaving friends behind and starting her Senior year in a new school. But I'm confident that she'll adjust very well.
So, for the next month it might be pretty quiet around here. I'll try to keep you up to date with the happenings of the move.
