I just read the latest post from my dear friend Vintage Girl at Heart. She talks about lifestyle changes for the new year. I guess making a last minute decision for a whirlwind trip to Kentucky to look at a piece of property, making an offer, having our offer accepted at just a couple hours before midnight on New Years Eve might just qualify as the beginnings of a definite lifestyle change.
Now we can use words like "hollow", "ridge", "mountain", "creek", "pasture", "ponds", "view" and "land" to describe what will soon be our home. There is a small fixer-upper house on the property. It is in definite need of "a mother and father's love". Our plans are to fix it up and live in it while we are building a house on the ridge. I have no words to describe the look on MWHITW's face when we had ventured across the creek and up over the hill to the ridge. I knew at that very moment that we were home. The view is beautiful - even on a dreary, overcast winter's day when there are no leaves on the trees. It's not hard to imagine what it will look like in the spring or the fall. And I knew at that very moment that we wouldn't be living in the little house for very long. One look at my husband's face told me where the new house would sit on the ridge, which direction it would face and how happy we would be there - looking down over the creek and the pastures while sitting our front porch swing.
Lifestyle changes? You bet! A new adventure? There is no doubt! Stay tuned for the next chapter and plan to accompany us on our journey to Goldens Creek Road.
