As I sit a top our back field and look out at the mountains I can't help but think of the life we left behind. Most people would think I/ we would be missing our old life and home. Funny thing is I had thought I might miss some of it, never did I dream I would love this new life as much as I do!!!
Yes, we traded in our well manicured lawn, a refreshing pool, and a home that was, well, exactly how we had envisioned our perfect home to be. Thing is, once our house was what we thought was perfect, our vision changed! We began to look at the country with open land, lush green fields and quaint farm homes.... and our dream/vision became what is today our new life;)
We now have a home made of old wood....and lots of new!
We don't have shrubs but wild flowers and weeds :)
Our neighbors seem to mind their own business..... I love watching them graze.
And our kiddos they have land to roam, they dig in dirt, sometimes come in with ticks, and let their imagination run wild! We've found such freedom just to be:)
The sun is starting to set and the flies that were once buzzing around my ears and starting to disappear one by one....I love the country flies and all! It's truly the simple pleasures of life that are most enjoyable.
