Slowly Realizing plus Pictures of the View

I am slowly, bit by bit realizing what our upcoming move means. For example:

We will be able to see the stars at night! We can't because of city light pollution right now. I want a telescope all over again. One that I can attach my SLR to.

No more middle of the night loud not very talented rappers outside on the street waking up the babies (myself included).

I can grow sweet potatoes! Heck, I'll be able to grow carrots, radishes, turnips, potatoes, and anything else that is a root/dirt veggie. I can't here because of lead in the soil.

When it gets really cold or the boiler/furnace goes out, we'll have a wood cook stove and a fireplace to snuggle up by.

And my day comprises of these tiny realizations just sparkling at me like magic. All day. Everyday.

i feel so blessed to have the opportunity to give my children what my Aunt gave me, a magical woods to explore, chores to be responsible for, and a healthier food culture.


  1. Wow! No wonder you're stoked. It's beautiful!

    You are going to LOVE having carbon neutral wood heat. You'll be warmer than you've ever been and I'm definitely jealous about the gardening. It's the one thing we lack that I really miss. And wait until you see Lil' Bugs face the first ti

    Sounds like it will be well worth all of the work involved. Best of luck to all of you!

  2. Spooks about I think. Half of my sentence disappeared. :) That was supposed to read "the first time she sees a deer walk by your windows."

  3. gorgeous! I can see why you are so excited! We are excited for you:o)

  4. I'm excited and jealous all at the same time! What a gorgeous view.

    Can't wait to see more!
