Not quite a goodbye, more like a see you around sometime maybe. Link in bio. πŸ’“

We're working and building and thinking and making and that leaves less time for social media...but I had to capture the first time I saw this view. #almosttolockup #homestretch #noyourecrying #homeiswherethebarnwas

Because this weekend was magic. Not the vacation-y type of magic, but the "oh yeah, that's why we're here.." kind of magic. Link in profile to some reflections on just how much this weekend mattered. πŸ’•πŸ’‘πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§β˜€οΈ#homeiswherethebarnwas

Barely any time to capture the garden bounty with vultures all around.

Because we clearly don't have 10 acres of beautiful clover pasture with endless bramble filled forests. #timeformorefencing

The goat kids have figure out several ways to sneak into the garden. So almost every day I have chased them out, but as my desire to do so has dwindled so has the time I've had to actually weed the garden. So far it appears nature has struck a nice balance. Just as long as they leave my beets alone.

Looks like no one gave Max the memo about running water...

We shall name her Bowie ⚑ and she shall be raised by toddlers to be the most laid back goat ever...

It doesn't look like much has happened on the farm, but small achievements and little steps forwards have made it easier to get by. Water on the farm has changed the way we live, helping to again equalize the ever changing balance of work and growing toddlers. Making what was hard turned practically impossible back to just hard again, making the hard seem easier. It brings to question how we will feel once our shell of a house is actually a home. Let's hope we never lose this perspective. #homeiswherethebarnwas

Two years ago today we officially bought this property...yesterday we hit a big milestone - just time for the heatwave. Time, persistence, tears and a lot of money. This is refreshing on so many levels. πŸ’¦πŸ’§πŸ’¦πŸ’§πŸ’¦πŸ’§πŸ’¦πŸ’§πŸ’¦πŸ’§

Kindness is so gangster.

Inspirational quote of the day: The thorniest, most difficult to reach branches often contain the juiciest of berries. #berryhighstandards #reachfortheberries
