It’s here, it’s here, it’s here, IT’S here!!! I have been dropping hints and teasers for a while now and today I finally get to let the cat out of the bag and share some exciting news with y’all. Here we go!
Sometimes life throws something unexpected your way and you just have to leap.
You didn’t set out looking for it, but it found you. You didn’t even realize it was something you wanted, but now it has your heart. This is exactly what brought us to this change in our life.
One short year ago I would have told you we’d live in our current home forever. We dreamed this house, built this house (literally), and have created so many memories in our home. It was the home we always wanted, but never expected to have. It was my realistic dream home. A home that was built as an effort to rebuild our city when 1/3 of it was wiped out by a tornado. We had so many volunteers donate and help make this new home possible. After living here for nearly 5 years now, I know this was the place that God wanted us to be for a season of our life.
But now we find ourselves in a place where our days there are numbered and a new adventure awaits…
An adventure that is 6 acres of wooded land just north of town. There is currently no road, no utilities and of course no home. But there is plenty of space, plenty to explore, and so many trees.
It means work, lots of work and money, LOTS of money. But trading one dream for another just feels right. We have been tossing & turning, debating & deliberating the decision for months now. Ultimately it came down to regret. Would we regret not going for this dream? We absolutely would.
Timelines are currently uncertain. There is still SO much to do before we can even begin the painful process of trying to sell our current home and even more exhausting task of building another. The work it is going to take is so daunting that at times we have questioned if it would even be worth it. And every time we do, we decide yes. I’ve also had to eat my own words. On more than one occasion I repeatedly said we would never build another home… but here we are.
Someday that is where our home will be.
A home that will be far from traditional but perfectly us. I can’t wait to share the entire journey with you as it unfolds! Come back tomorrow when I share a little more about our plans for the new home and the decor inspiration that I am already finding.
New adventure awaits. Making an exciting announcement in today's blog post! Click To Tweet
