My excessive absence from this space over the last 4 weeks has not been by design.  Just life happening, I suppose.  Initially, I lacked time to write because of a wonderful surprise that dropped into our laps.  We stumbled upon a farmhouse, in foreclosure, that just screamed our names.  For about 3 weeks, we spruced, purged, and readied our current house, while putting an offer in and dreaming about life in this sweet little farmhouse.

Ultimately, the bank's agent dragged her feet getting the paperwork to us to sign to get the house under contract, another person made an offer, and we ended up losing out on this wonderful deal and lovely little homestead.  The entire situation was a bit crushing and more than a little difficult to write about before now.

Not being one to drag my feet in misery, I've already been working on some new projects, taking my mind off of the whole ordeal.  Hopefully I'll have some more posts up soon.  Ones with a bit less heaviness. :)

Onward and upward to a new week!


  1. sad that the house didn't work out. That means there is a better farmhouse out there in your future!!

  2. That stinks, but like Karen said it just means another is around the corner.

  3. Oh how exciting and then ... oh no :( So sorry to read this - the perfect place is waiting for you to discover it xxx

  4. I think that it is great that you really gave it your all. It shows you want you want, and where your life is headed. Nothing is perfect until you put your love and talent into it. Something will come along that gives you what you need.

  5. I think I may be just as crushed as you are :( We'll find a fun way to drown our sorrows next time I see you!


I love to hear what you think!
