Many of our friends have chosen to live in bigger towns or cities and I’m happy for them but the two of us don’t’ want that life for ourselves. A few years ago, we had the chance to travel the country for four years while my husband served in the Navy. This was an awesome chance to see cities and to experience life outside of the “norm.” We both enjoyed the traveling and the opportunity to live in areas that we might not have the chance to otherwise but couldn’t wait to get back to where we both felt we belong.
I am so lucky to have found a husband who has similar dreams and goals for our future. We know exactly where we want to settle down and cannot wait to get started on building the house of our dreams! We married a few miles from where I grew up, just outside of a huge farmhouse that belonged to a family friend. This area has always been so special to me and the fact that my husband loves the area so much completely warms my soul and makes my heart happy.
We have our land, just need to build! Our future home will sit on family land directly across the street from grandparents. Our plan includes a nice size family home on several acres. The land we have chosen backs up to pasture land on two sides and family homes in front and the right side.
Our future home will have 3 or 4 bedrooms, a garage, shop, nice patio, and a play room (one for the kids and one man cave). We’ll be able to live in our hometown and to be next to family and close friends. Small town living at its finest…. We’re enjoying our days of adventures but are looking forward to settling down back home too!
