Want to know a secret?
We have moved.
This is our new home.
We have made the switch from city dwellers to country folk.
We went from a tiny, noisy, cozy one bedroom city apartment to a beautiful country home on a little farm.
We have a John Deere tractor, a red barn, horses to look at, and lovely neighbors.
Life is changing.
I have been thinking a lot about change lately.
You know the saying, "There is nothing as constant as change."
I am beginning to understand that the older I get the truer I am finding that it becomes.
I remember growing up and having expectations for what my life might be like. I had goals and plans and thoughts as to what I would do.
I am realizing that the only expectation we should have is to be happy. Rather to make happiness for ourselves. Life is never really how you expect it to be. The surprises make it exhilarating but we should always prepare ourselves against the storms of life. We should guard ourselves with the assurance of knowing who we are and Who's we are.
We are going through a storm right now.
We are trying to be there for our family in a time of need and we hope that we can bring joy in to this new home. We will be living with my mother for some time and it will be a positive thing for us all.

I would just like to add to my previous comment an explanation for why I am overly obsessed with your house.. I come from the suburbs where the differences between houses are 1 or 2 story and pink or red brick. so your unique house is very refreshing :)
