Shane and I have been talking a lot lately about our decision to move across the country. Did we make the right choice? Did we do the right thing?
We miss friends, we miss family, we miss the home we worked on for 10 years and finally had the way we wanted.
As everything begins to bloom again, we are reminded of the beauty that inspired us to move here.
Shane’s hard work on the farmhouse renovation is making tremendous progress and we can both envision holidays, celebrations and many beautiful memories to come in a home that has truly been built with love.
I am clearing garden beds, starting seeds and getting some plant starts into the soil. Another garden season is beginning. I am also busy working on the skincare line. Perfecting formulas, creating new products, deepening my knowledge of the ingredients I use and want to incorporate. Also, making spreadsheets, learning about marketing and all the essential but not always fun parts of running a successful business.
Change pushes us out of our comfort zones, even positive change. A seed has to set roots and then push it’s way through the dirt and break through so the sun can shine down on the new little plant.
As we build and grow in this new season of our life, I do believe we are setting strong roots. For our marriage, for our family and for us as individuals.
Having a clear vision and a shared dream of building this homestead has provided a deeper connection to each other and the roots of our marriage are stronger than ever.
Change is a gift to help us grow. All we need to do is look to nature, to know it is true.
