10 Years

Time really does fly. Today marks our 10 year anniversary of living on our acreage. We've had many ups and downs living in the country on an old farm but it's been worth it. I remember when we first moved in, some of the projects we were going to tackle immediately. Well, those projects haven't been touched yet but we tackled a few other projects instead. Some needed to be done, others were just to make the place nicer for us. 

I struggle with the realization that it's been 10 years. So much has happened in our personal lives in the past 10 years. We've had some near death experiences, gone through thee wash machines, two driers, a furnace, a roof (both shingles and literally the roof), had a tornado, fire, blizzards, gotten married, had two kids, and seen so many horses come into our family and so many leave. It breaks my heart to know that we've had to say goodbye to so many (both two legged and four) but I guess that's part of life and it would happen no matter where we live.

I am glad that I can call this place home and that we can open our doors to just a few so that they too can call this place home. I only wish that we could open our doors to more so that they too could call this place home.

Here's to another 10 years (hopefully they'll be less adventurous).
