my future home

Okay, not really. But don’t I wish.Yesterday I helped out with the preschool field trip to a local apple orchard. And seriously? I just wanted to pick up my stuff and move on in. Not only was it beautiful, but there was open air, space to breathe, and of course trees and apples as far as the eye could see. Beyond that? Mountains. I always tell Jacob that I just want to plop down a house in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to civilization to not run out of gas before I get there. Somehow I think creativity must be incredible in a place like that. I feel so inspired when I’m there for 5 minutes, I can only imagine living there. Plus, that porch? Those rocking chairs? Perfect for some hot cocoa and a nap quilt. Sigh.Anyone want to visit when I move in? ;)

    I agree with you. I would visit and probably build my home about 2 acres away. ;)

      I know, right? I just stared at it (instead of keeping track of three year olds, like I was supposed to…)

    Oh I love that House. I might just have to move there myself. So beautiful and calming. I would be so inspired. If you do decide to move I would love to join you in the rocking chairs for a cuppa and a chat.

    That’s my kind of house too. I love a big front porch. I’m picturing a quilt hanging over the railing.

    Looks tranquil. I can picture a sunny afternoon with your quilts blowing in the breeze while they dry on the line. Of course you would never want to actually hang them in the sun so they didn’t bleach out but the image is a nice one, don’t you think? :)

      I know! Peaceful and idyllic, for sure. I might be tempted to hang them out on the line just for the picture. :)

      It was. It was nice and quiet…except when the train came through. But even that was just nostalgic. :)

    I’ve never gone to an apple orchard though we are checking out what types of apples we can grow here in Florida. I too would love that home. Happy Anniversary.
