Do you ever feel in need of some “tender loving care”?
I have the past few days.
I hit a wall of exhaustion and made it clear to my family that I needed help and some extra lov’in. They responded and I feel much better.
In the same way, our new “old” house needs some TLC and I love it that I get to “play” and spruce things up.
Just a side note,
When I started blogging 2 years ago, I blogged about my home, cooking recipes, craft projects: the aspects of my life which fit into the “Country Cottage Living” theme. I decided not to get too personal and I wanted it to be positive and lead me toward something special.
As I journaled/blogged, I realized what I really wanted and wished for: a home in the country with space for my husband’s woodworking, a possible showroom to sell and show our things and a spot for chickens and a few other animals…
When I realized that I really wanted this, I searched for a way to make it happen. We finally found a home to rent that felt like “home” and we moved. I feel like I accomplished something great just by realizing what I wanted and I feel grateful that we get to play at “country living.”
I kept my dream alive by blogging about what I wanted and photographing cows while taking a drive in the country.
Starting now, I’ll blog about my experiences here in this 100 year old farmhouse on 5 acres. Will my dream always be happy and bright or will it have a few nightmares? Come back and see!
Nothing happens unless first we dream.
