I am honestly a little humbled right now…

After living such an “uprooted” lifestyle while my husband was in the Marines, I never thought we’d call a place like this home.

Sure, I had dreamed of a beautiful farmhouse, but I assumed that was all it ever would be… dreams.

So with that said, it’s been an uphill journey getting to this place in our life.

There was even some heartbreak along the way… we found several historical farmhouses that we tried to buy before we found this one.

All those sales fell through and I was crushed.

I somewhat resented God, as if He had been dangling this “perfect” dream of mine in front of me, only to snatch it away at the last moment.

And then we found this house.

I gasped when I saw the picture. No way this was sitting on the market.

Then we toured the inside and found out why. It was NOT a pretty sight. But the outside had good bones.

Losing those other two old farmhouses still stung (for me anyway!), but we lovingly turned this house into a home one DIY project at a time.

It often had to happen between naps, and netflix for the kids. Come at me. Haha!

You do what you got to do when you have no family in the area…

One thing I didn’t realize that I was missing in my life was a sense of community & fellow mama friends with the same dreams and values.

When Silas was in the Marines, I pretty much kept to myself in the friend department. It was so hard being a young mom of three with no other mom friends who could relate to this season in my life.

So flash forward to present day… God knew I needed friends. Our house may not be sitting on 10 acres like my heart was yearning for…

But we have found that God knew what He was doing when he moved us here.  I’m not sure if this will be our forever home, but I am loving every day we get to spend here.

I am so blessed to be able to decorate this front porch for our second fall season here. I  hope that my story will give you hope for the beautiful things in life… if you are willing to patiently wait for them. So keep on working towards and dreaming those beautiful, seemingly impossible dreams…
