In August 2011, we moved to the country. Well, to us it was the country, even though it is directly off of a 2 lane highway. But it is 21 acres, with hills, grass, a few trees, a small pond, and an old house we are s l o w l y fixing up to live in. In the meantime, we are living in the shop we had built. This all sounded dreamy until about 2 months in, when the wide open space has fences to repair, did I mention a house to fix-up (complete gut job). If it is ever finished, I promise to do cart-wheels down the highway. We still have so much to be thankful for.
