This is everything we have waited for.
Before we were married we talked about living in an old farm house on some land. We meant to raise our children in such a place. Once we landed in Phoenix our dreams kind of escaped and we found ourselves in a place we weren't happy. We knew all along that that wasn't the place we intended to be but we made the best of it.
Thank you Lord for both of us losing our jobs, dwindling our bank accounts, depleting our savings, losing our 401K
and handing our house over to the bank.
What a BLESSING!
Thank youLord for moving us to Cache Valley with no money, no jobs and absolutely no idea as to what the future held.
I feel like life is starting all over especially now that we are unpacking ALL of our boxes after three long years. Nothing is temporary anymore. We are moving on in life.
We have moved into a house that is 106 years old on an acre of land (1.16 acres to be exact) with all its quirkiness. It isn't much to look at right now but as the years pass I am sure that we will put the Kirk and Pam charm on it.
Get a load of this "vintage" lighting. I guess someone broke the glass.
This house definitely has some unique features.
Almost all the doors have these beautiful knobs. Some actually latch....some don't. Notice the chunks of crayon stuck in the keyhole.
The front window has the original leaded glass. I have noticed several houses around town with the same type of windows. They are quite pretty.
Here is the kermit the frog room that is now a very light pink chosen by Daphne.
I love that the walls are nice and clean, sealed with paint.
And boy do they grow fast.
I feel like we are camping sometimes while we are hanging out in our new yard. Listening to the breeze whistle through the pine trees is just like being in the forest. We spent all day outside on Easter. Well, we kind of had to work on getting this chicken coop built. Jared and Kaleb stopped long enough to dye eggs.
These past couple months have felt like a blur from the time we made an offer on the house, packed, moved, unpacked, painted and all the other stuff in between.
We are so thankful to be living within our own walls. I feel like we have finally moved on in life and are feeling like we actually belong here. It feels good. Life is good. There is so much to look forward to.
Kirk has great plans to change the look of the house itself and return it to some of the original 1906 craftmanship. We have definitely moved into a project house that needs lots of tender loving care. Best of all it is our home and what we make of it.
