Things are about ready to change in our world again.
We made the decision to leave our little farm house.
It has been almost 2 years since we laid our eyes on this little piece of property.
The property had been neglected for a few years.
We purchased the farm in January of 2012.
It seemed like forever before the snow melted and we could start working around the yard.
And there was lots of work to do!
After a many days of raking, pulling weeds and one awful bout of poison ivy we got it done!
What a difference a year makes!
The next project was the house itself.
The poor roof was weighed down with 6 layers of shingles.
The workers swore they heard it breath a sigh of relief when the last layer was removed.
Each room needed a little TLC.
The living room was a hodge podge of colors and uneven wall paper boarders.
The only thing I didn't want to change was the farmstyle kitchen.
The cabinets were made by a former tenant.
We have put a lot of time, love and money into this property!
It became a relaxing weekend retreat for us.
Then this spring we decided lets make it our permanent home.
The house in town went on the market.
We were so excited when it sold and the farm could be our full time home.
But soon after the move it became apparent the space was just to small.
I love to entertain, and the house just won't hold more than a few people comfortably.
A few ideas floated around.
Lets add on.
Maybe build a new house.
But that would mean tearing down a great little house that was built in 1861.
We just couldn't do that.
The hubby is always scanning the real estate pages.
He came across a house only a few miles up the road.
We went back and forth about making an appointment to look at it.
On a Friday night last month we took that step.
It felt like home!
We made an offer the next day.
The sellers accepted!
But my heart still felt bad for leaving this little farm.
That Saturday night a tragic thing happened.
My sons girlfriend was killed in an auto accident not far from the house.
Our once scenic view will always hold the memory of all the emergency lights that horrible night.
I knew it was time to go!
The papers will be signed on the 27th.
A late Christmas present to us!
We haven't yet decided what to do with this little farm house.
I am sure God will guide the right person to this property, just like he did for us!
Two moves in one year?
We must be crazy!
Very blessed, but crazy!
Here is a sneak peak of the new house.
It sits on 5 acres!
Lots of room, but lots more things to tackle!
Ready or not here we come!
