Here we go.....


We are feeling good about this new direction. Once we gave up the idea that a pasture and a barn and an organic farm were our future, everything fell into place and became so easy. Funny how you can think you want one thing and the Universe has a completely different plan for you!

Our offer has been accepted, we have a contract underway, loan approval is done, a green builder is going to meet with us to discuss affordable renovations and we are seeing a light at the end of this long damn tunnel we have been traveling through for the past three or so years.

The house is smaller than what we live in now, there is zero storage, no attic, no garage, no outbuilding, so we have to get creative. More purging to come. We are going to lose one room, mostly the room I kept all of my "stuff" in, so I have some goodbyes to say to things that I have kept for a rainy day. 2015 was a year of letting go and saying goodbye, 2016 will be our year of moving forward and new beginnings. 

Looking forward to the road ahead!

An exciting new venture for you and Gerry. And an awesome home away from home for Wesley.

De-cluttering is very cathartic.
Say goodbye to the old, and hello to a whole new life!

Can't wait to see what you do with this wonderful new home of yours!!

Downsizing can be good for the mind and body! And there are always SHEDS!
