A Journey to a Dream…

Everyone has a dream, but does everyone take steps to fulfill that dream? If so, what made you take that leap? If not, what is holding you back?

I always had dreams, but I have always given up on them due to fear. I was afraid of starting something and then something going wrong, or then again maybe it goes right. I always stopped short of starting and fulfilling my dreams. It has taken most of my adult years to stop being afraid and do what makes me happy. The saying is true: life is too short. It truly is. Whether your dreams are big or small, you need to start somewhere. That one small step may be one of many, but it is a step into your dreams. I am finally not afraid to step into mine. My happiness is beginning with that one small step, and I would love for you to follow me on my journey…

My journey is one that I have always yearned for, and I am blessed that I have a husband and children that want to go along for the ride! I have always wanted a farm. A farm with cows, chickens, sheep, fruit trees, gardens, and flowers. We also want to be self-sufficient. Grow our own food, learn how to can, chop wood, raise our own animals, and so much more. This is where we combined the two and decided to start a homestead. The fear has been replaced with excitement. The best part is, we are doing this as a family.

I also have learned that I need patience. I have to learn that this will take time and to try not to rush it all. I need to step back and enjoy the process and enjoy what we are learning. This blog will keep you updated with it all! The trials, triumphs, tears, laughter (lots and lots of laughter), and joys! Welcome to our journey!

  1. We were “back to the landers” in the mid-70’s when the term “homestead” mostly related to pioneers claiming land out West. It is an immensely satisfying lifestyle, and I learned a lot of useful skills (read the about me at my blog) Best of luck as you begin this journey.
