The Farmer...

What sort of Farmer will I be?  I've been thinking that of late.  Now don't get me wrong...I'm using the term "farmer" very loosely....very very loosely, but a suburban existence to a country lifestyle is one I am very excited about when I'm not petrified. 

I'm really looking forward to the wide open spaces.  My husband and I can't stop talking about all the things we can do with our 13 acres of land....the possibilities blow our mind away.  

And when I see images like this one above, a little flutter in my heart occurs.  Me....donning my country boots, to feed the chooks or walk through the orchard to pick fruit ripe for preserving, whilst the smell of freshly baked bread wafts through the house.  The kids riding bikes (or even motorbikes) around the property and getting dirty knees and faces before we all collapse and night in front of a fire after a hearty meal.  

Sounds good hey?

Sounds glorious! Hats off to you for your bravery and faith in making such a wonderful dream come to life.

We moved from inner city Sydney to a small coastal town 4 years ago, and it's been quite a journey. I look forward to following yours.

It really does sound SO great! How exciting. I often dream of a 'simpler' farm lifestyle but I'm not sure that Rich and I are truly cut out for it! I look forward to watching your adventure unfold. Belinda x
