Welcome to our 1864 farmhouse…life is good!

happenings on the farm...

It's been a whirlwind of activity on the farm lately...

college visits with my sweet ballerina (where do the years go?)

preparations for an Eagle Scout project (my little man always laughing...again, time flies!)

And repair work started on the barn.

I wanted to share these photos I took while the roof was off...I thought the lighting was beautiful, and with any luck (meaning the roof holds tight!) we won't have the opportunity to see this again.

Maybe not everyone loves the old, chippy, primitive look...but it's my favorite. A barn filled with history...pegs, the faded remnants of a large painted Pepsi logo, wooden ladders, old silos, and stalls (just waiting to be filled...right, hubby?) 

Hey, everyone has their dreams...and I'm not getting any younger! Mine is to create a spot that my ballerina and laughing boy can come home to and relax from the hustle & bustle. A place they can one day bring their families to unwind and enjoy the quiet, the sound of owls in the woods, train whistles in the distance, peepers in the creek, and silence. A place for camp-outs in Maizy or a family-size tent, making s'mores and gazing at the stars. A place filled with sunflower gardens, sweet animals, and a little roadside stand.
