This seems like an appropriate day to start a new blog. It is the first day of the year in which I turn 40. And among my various New Year’s resolutions there is one which stands to change my life in ways I probably can’t even imagine right now. After all these years of dreaming about living in the country, I’ve finally mustered up the courage to turn that dream into reality.
My husband has been working on me for some time now. I was open to the idea of rural living…I just didn’t want to leave the city! Slowly but surely, however, reality and dreams came together and brought me to the point where I had to ask myself: why not give it a try?
And so we sat down and worked out a plan. Step 1: save as much money as we can. Step 2: husband finds a way to remain gainfully employed while transplanting the family to a rural community. Step 3: buy some real estate and move!
I’ve started this blog to document the process of fulfilling our dream. There’s sure to be other topics discussed as well, but that will be the main focus.
