oh, happy day

So, it's quite the typical American dream... it's a single story, there's no picket fence, and it's smack dab in the middle of nowhere.  But, it's everything I have ever wanted and so much more than I could have asked for.

It's been a tough week on my end, so I'm going to take some time today and focus on how truly blessed we are.  Please don't take this post as boasting or bragging.  We are eternally grateful for everything and it's all to easy to forget the big picture.  Especially for me lately.

This house is becoming my happy place, my save haven, and I find myself craving it.  There is something about those woods.  It's so beautiful and calming.  I need to get away from it all- the rush of life, the barking dogs... We don't necessarily live in a city, but I would call our rental apartment "downtown".  The closer we get to occupancy, the more I'm wanting to get out of here, and out there.

I never had the opportunity to meet Grandma & Grandpa R, but I like to think I know a little bit about their hearts.  They raised two wonderful people (if you're reading this Aunt M., know we love you & miss you!), and what joy they have given me.

I will be forever grateful for their gift.  We could never have done this without them.  I promise to always care for and respect this land, our new home, and do my very best to make it a place full of love and happiness, and hopefully many more trillium & daffodils.
